Experience the jungle

Even though this was a highly touristy expedition, it was well worth it. Our guide was so fantastic. She saw native animals that we never would have noticed on our own. We saw monkeys, sloths, unique birds, unique frogs and lizards. The walk through the jungle was beautiful and relaxing. The beach was gorgeous and so clear. An authentic journey through the beautiful vegetation of Costa Rica. With our tour group we got to also enjoy a stop at a local bakery with authentic bakery goods as well as a special iconic place for lunch. We had an outstanding view during lunch.

Sloths galore!

The guide was really good at spotting sloths way high up in the trees, and he made it his mission that we see clearly see a sloth's face before leaving the park!

Amazing tour!

Had an amazing tour with Jovanna and our drivers. Jovanna was very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and amazing! She even offered us her sunscreen since we forgot ours at the hotel. She took our photos, watched over our belongings while at the beach, and did not rush us at all. Amazing tour, and will highly recommend to all my friends. 5/5 stars!!!

Our guide Jovana was the best!

This was one of the best tours I have ever been on. The park was absolutely beautiful, and we saw so many animals. Our guide, Jovana, knew so much about the flora and fauna. She was able to spot animals hiding in the most difficult to find places. Her enthusiasm was incredible, and her love for the animals and her country was contagious. We were so pleased with the whole experience!

The most memorable part of our tour other than being in Nature was that our tour guide was extraordinary, very helpful and knowledgeable. All the people involved we very friendly and courteous. The lunch at the end of the day was very nice and we couldn’t ask for a better group of 10, my family managed to make friends with several people from our trip. I could not ask for anything better! Great job to everyone involved and hope to see you again!

A nice leisurely day in the park. Jovanna was our guide with Juan doing the driving. Jovanna was amazing, very knowledgeable and very good at spotting the different animals. We had about an hour or so to stop at the beach which is within the park. She stood by and watched our things while we frolicked in the water. On our way back we had lunch (included in price) at The Avión restaurant, and that was just an amazing place. The view, the food, the plane, everything was great. En route back to our Airbnb, Juan the driver, was kind enough to take us to a souvenir place before dropping us off. Highly recommend.

Go see the monkeys

Joanna was our guide an Alex was our driver. They picked us up in Jaco from our designated area in front of the Best Western. They arrived at the scheduled time and then we took a 90 min ish drive to the Park. Joanna led a delightful conversation for the drive and answered any of the questions we had. On arrival at the park she led the hike, but prompted us at every fork in the road, and wanted to make sure we had the best experience possible. She also had incredible eyes. She found animals none of the other guides even picked up on. During this trip we saw two kinds of moneys, two kinds of sloths, a white tails deer, raccoons, central American raccoons, bats, lizards, iguanas, toucan, and a few other birds. Toward the end of your trip you will hit the secluded beach and she was gracious enough to watch our stuff. Recommend packing beach clothes/dry clothes/towel and thats pretty much all you will need. In addition on our way home we stopped at the "Airplane" restuarant? I think thats the name. Cool little spot where you can pick one of the pre-selected meals which is a version of Costa Rican Fried Rice. Good Food.

Perfect Day Trip from Jaco

The day was well planned and we fit so many activities into one day, which is exactly what I was looking for! Our guide was great - so friendly and knowledgeable and it was clear she was passionate about all of her guests getting to see as many animals as possible. Such a great day!

Pura Vida in Costa Rica
Timna_N
, Jan. 2022
Brilliant. Breathtaking. The very meaning of Pura Vida. Our guide and driver Juan was incredible in every way. Because of some other tourists who didnt want anyone added to their van, we ended up having a private tour and the van to ourselves with Juan. IT was great. He really showed us Costa Rica and taught us so much. When we arrived to Manuel Antonio, Roger took over as our guide through the park and it was amazing. Showed us so much through the telescope, we stopped at the beach and took that in for a while and then on the walk back he shared even more knowledge. The lunch at El Avion was delicious and the view was so breathaking. Honestly, I wish I could give this experience 10 stars because from start to finish everything was handled perfectly.

It was something to see.

The driver was very good and he stayed with us in the park. The park is one of the 10 best in the world. The park was very crowded and the guide was in a rush because he had another tour at noon. He was able to spot a lot. He left us at the beach but the driver was with us. The beaches were beautiful for swimming. The restaurant and the food were very good. We were expecting a whole day trip like advertised but it was shorter. It was something to see.

Juvella was my guide, I ended up being the only one in the group due to a cancellation. She taught me many amazing things about the animals and plants in the park. She has years of experience and was kind, attentive and provided answers to all my questions. We saw nearly all the different types of animals and I especially enjoyed the sloths. Juvella has a true passion for nature and her English is very good, I would recommend her highly. Lunch in the restaurant was delightful with a beautiful view, a perfect ending to a lovely adventure.

I paid $97 for a full day tour which was supposed to include lunch and a trip to two beaches. What I received was a 2 hour tour of Manuel Antonio Park. The 2 hours were great, the guide was knowledgeable and friendly and was able to spot many animals. However, I did not get lunch at “El Avión” I received a bowl of fruit and was told I could not exit the park for lunch at El Avion or I would need to pay $19 for entry again and I would not get to see the beach. I was also promised water so I did not bring my own. I ended up purchasing water. Finally, the guide dropped us at the beach and said “we can go to the other beach but in my opinion its not really worth it.” I got the sense he didn’t want to go. Why would it be included in a tour if it is “not worth it”. I emailed the tour operator for a partial refund and they called me and told me they would resolve it and call me back but they did not. I did my best to be fair and only asked for a partial refund and they did not grant it. I will call my credit card company for a refund.

Nature Tour and Beautiful Beach
Cesar_R
, Jul. 2021
The guide, Jovanna, was awesome! She is so knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. She was willing to wait for all of us to look through her binoculars, young and old, big and small. She shared so much about everything there and was willing to stop by a bakery for us to get breakfast since we left prior to our hotel’s restraint opening for the day. She also watched our bags while we swam. The lunch was in an iconic location and the food was delicious! Cannot recommend this tour enough!!

First class tour with so many great moments
Christopher_M
, Jun. 2021
What an incredible experience this tour was! We saw everything we hoped to see: 2 kinds of sloths, 3 kinds of monkeys, toucans, parrots and many other birds and animals (right down to a tiny little stick bug). Our guide Jovanna was wonderful and very patient with our kids (12, 9, and 7). Not only was she incredibly knowledgeable, but also well prepared with a telescope to see animals from afar. Juan, our driver was great as well. The entire tour from the moment we we’re picked up from our hotel until we got back about 7 hours later was first class. I recommend this trip to anyone, particularly with Jovanna!

An excellent tour. The park is a mist see in Costa Rica, and it was definitely the highlight of our trip. I can definitely recommend the tour company for seeing the park as well. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgable, and really good at spotting all the animals we hoped to see.
