At first I was a bit...
Cecilie_M
, Apr. 2022
At first I was a bit dissappointed that the tour did not take place in the national park, but maybe I misunderstood. That being said, the guide (Mop) was great. He asked everyone in the group what they wished to see and then he found it. He also found many other animals than the other guides we met did.

Too expensive and underwhelming
Megan_N
, Mar. 2022
Seeing the tarantulas was the most exciting part of our trip. I was a bit disappointed with how many tours were happening at the same time as well as underwhelmed by our guides knowledge and ability to find animals and insects. If this tour was like $20 per person would have been totally worth it but for this price we were not impressed.

Faced my fears! Highly recommend.
Michael_S
, Feb. 2022
This was a really fun and unique experience. I am usually very afraid of snakes, spiders, and various bugs, but I figured this would be a great opportunity to face these fears. The tour guide was terrific and I felt safe the entire time. Walking through the jungle at night is an experience in itself. We ended up seeing roughly 5 species of frogs, 4 species of snakes, 2 tarantulas, 2 scorpions, a sloth, and a racoon, among other things. All very cool. The pickup and dropoff from my AirBnB was very convenient, and the rain boots provided were very useful. The guide was very friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. It was cool to hear the histories of different plants and animals, as well as the meanings behind the different species. The small tour group (3 of us total) was perfect. Definitely recommend!

We did two tours and had Carlos as our guide both times. He was amazing. His eye for finding the smallest micro fauna and interpreting all the sounds of nature was wonderful. His enthusiasm for nature was contagious. Pura vida!

Mop was AMAZING! It was one of my favorite parts of the trip. It rained for most of it but they provide rainboots which made all the difference! We hadnt seen a sloth yet and he made sure we saw one before the tour was over. I cannot express enough how amazing this tour was. I highly highly recommend!

Carlos went above and beyond during our night tour! We hadn’t seen sloths yet, so he went out of his way to find one for us. He found 2! A 2 toed sloth and a 3 toed sloth. We saw frogs, spiders, tarantulas, scorpions, crickets, beetles, millipedes, a snake, lizards, and bats. Before it got dark, we saw some squirrel monkeys and a deer. It was amazing how easily he could find the animals. He spoke English very well and knew so much! They provide rain boots for us, which was really nice.

We had a good time. Saw lots of wildlife. Deer, sloth, kinkajou, frogs, snakes, spiders, and lizards. Got to witness a cane snake eating tadpoles that were in egg sacks attached to a leaf. Very cool experience.

Unique jungle experience with a nature expert
Ivana_C
, Jul. 2021
The tour itself was fascinating, we walked through a pitch black jungle so I felt pretty adventurous already. We also saw so many different varieties of frogs, scorpions, crazy looking spiders, and a massive tarantula. Manuel was our guide and he should be hosting some jungle show on Netflix or something. Bear in mind that we were walking through the pitch black jungle with only a few flashlights, but he somehow spotted all of the animals we would have missed had we not had a guide. He’s also a super talented photographer who took National Geographic worthy pictures and was very knowledgeable about everything— from animals, to plants, to which mushrooms are edible, which ones are psychedelic, and which ones are poisonous. I’m so happy that we opted to do a tour— we got our own private nature walk!

Another type of experience
Andy_W

Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable about the jungle. It was lightly spooky but our guide made sure that we could be cautious around the more worrisome critters (and respectful of personal health safety preferences). We explored the general area beforehand during the day and the night tour was a whole new experience. Be sure to bring good rain gear, the forecast calls for it.

Thank you very much, Jessica_S. What a nice jungle hike we did! I'm happy that you did it and discovered that there is nothing wrong with walking through the dark rainforest at night. With the right tour guides and equipment, no problem at all! Pura Vida! Manuel Cabalceta M. Manuel’s Tours, Costa Rica.

We were with Carlos. He was a great guide showing us animals we would have never seen. Seen a crocodile, several frogs,tree crabs, scorpions,raccoons,spiders,sloths and a couple butterflies. We had a good time. I will say bring water because it can be quite exhausting
