We’re so happy we signed up for this tour. Our guides were Cesar and Beatrice. They were both very knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about their profession. We got to see lots of frogs, toads, millipedes, caiman, spiders, lizards, whip scorpions, bats, opossums, and lots of other animals in their native home. We learned a lot about the local flora and fauna, and really got to appreciate the natural beauty of Costa Rica. We would never be brave enough to go into the jungle at night on our own, but we felt very safe and comfortable with our guides. We’re so glad we got to see a glimpse of the nocturnal world, and we now have some very cool photos to share with our family and friends. Beatrice has a great eye for photography, and will gladly help you take the perfect photo. Thank you for an awesome adventure 🙂
I loved this tour and learning about the plants. Joshua was a really great guide and very knowledgeable! They are also building and incredible butterfly garden which they were gracious enough to let us go through! And we received an email with all the info of the plants. Thank you!
We had a great hike through the rainforest, coming up to some incredible views over the beaches and surrounding rocks and rainforest. Nothing like hiking through the forest and hearing the ocean waves. It’s a tough hike, to be fair. The hills can be steep, but we found it very enjoyable.
Cesar was our guide, and he could not have been better. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and can identify every sound and every insect we saw. I would definitely recommend wearing the wellies (rubber boots for Americans!) that they provide to protect your feet and ankles. Sadly we didn’t see any snakes but the amazing spiders, possums and tree frogs more than made up for it. A highly enjoyable experience, I definitely recommend it.
Night jungle with all its magical sounds was mesmerizing! Ficus tree, 30 years old Bromellia, Oophaga poisonous dart frog, bull frog – poisonous, grows up to 0.5 Kg, Amblypygi is a cross between a scorpion and a spider, called a tailless scorpion, male and female golden orb spider nephila, brazilian banana spider – its bite sends you to the hospital, gladiator frog, Red eye leave frog, and Jesus Christ lizard – runs on the water 1.5 meters per second. We were looking for snakes and caiman crocodiles but did not see any this time. Beatriz is amazing tour guide. She is educated and knowledgeable; very excited about nature and beauty of rainforest. Beatriz takes stunning photos and videos using your camera, just ask her. Also ask Beatriz about her future educational projects. Very nice and exciting person. She deserves every minute of your time. Tipping is welcomed too. Definitely must go tour.
