Best binoculars for the rainforest

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are leaving in a few weeks for Costa Rica and we'll be spending quite a bit of time in the rainforest scoping out the flora and fauna. I'm thinking about buying a pair of binoculars for my husband, but I'm confused by which resolution is best, if waterproof binoculars are a must, and if I really need image stabilization. I only want to spend around $250 and I'm leaning towards the Canon 8x25 IS Image Stabilized Binocular.

Does any one have any advice on which binoculars are best when touring the rainforest?

TIA!
