    Jason was an amazing guide. He was so joyful and enthusiastic in his searching for birds and sharing his knowledge with us. We saw so many birds as well as lots of other wildlife. I would highly recommend working with his company! 💫👏🏻

    It was an awesome...

    It was an awesome experience, Jason is great and very knowledgeable about animals and plants ! We saw lots of animals. Birds, coati, snake , spider. Observed tikan going in and out of the nest. Highly recommended!
    Great experience!

    The tour was really nice and we were really lucky in spotting lots of birds. At the beginning I thought it would have been better to go without a guide, but he spotted so many birds hidden in the canopy that I was really glad we booked the tour in the end. Besides lots of tukans and kolibris and other local birds we even saw three quetzals, which are really hard to find without a guide knowing where to look. Jason is a really experienced guide and I would recommend him to anyone wanting to do bridwatching in Monteverde.

    Excellent morning in Curi-Cancha
    Mike_F, Mar 2024
    An excellent 4 hours being guided round the Curi-Cancha reserve by Jason. Saw Quetzels and many other species too numerous to mention. Jason was an enthusiastic and friendly guide who shared his deep knowledge of the forest.

    A productive morning.

    Although the title is Monteverde Birdwatching Experience, the walk takes place in Curi-Cancha and not the Monteverde cloud forest reserve. Apparently that increases bird sightings because you don't have the dense forest, but it significantly reduces your odds of seeing the quetzal. I saw 38 birds. Guide didn't use the telescope much, but instead relied on everyone using/sharing binoculars and pointing "look over there."
    Great Birdwatching Tour with Jason

    Great birdwatching tour with Jason! He's an excellent guide, knowledgable, and professional. What an incredible 4 hours learning about the fauna in Monteverde, and the highlight of the trip when we had the privilege to see the male and female Quetzal up close!!! Would highly recommend this tour with Jason!!!

    Ohh Jean Paul, thanks a lot for your beautiful words. Was my pleasure been your guide.
    Extraordinary bird sighting and learning experience.
    Jacqueline_H, Aug 2023
    The tour with Jason and the way he was able to hear a bird and then find it in his scope. We were able to learn about the park’s habitat and how important it is to preserve the environmental ecosystems to allow birds and others living in the parks to survive.

    Thank you so much! Beautiful words...
    Spectacular bird watching
    Doug_S, Apr 2023
    Jason is a great guide. I spent two mornings with him. The first day we went to Curi-cancha reserve. He knows all the bird calls and was excellent at spotting them and putting the scope on them so I could have a good look. We saw about 50 species that day. He finished by circling back to a tree where he thought there would be something special and were rewarded with spectacular views of the Resplendent Quetzal. The second morning was a trip to San Luis Finca Ecologica where we saw even more species. Jason took the time to find birds and has a relaxed and easy-going manner. I highly recommend a tour with him.

    Hello Doug, I really aprecciate your review. Also, I have to say that you are a such a good birder as well! Thanks for sharing this experience.
    Great guide
    Krisztina_H, Mar 2023
    Jason was a great guide, fully recommend him if you want to have a nice experience in Curi Cancha and want to see beautiful Costa Rican birds! You can feel on him that he loves & respects the nature and his enthusiasm is contagious :) He was really friendly with us, shared interesting facts not just about birds, but other inhabitants of the reserve. I think we were lucky to see every beautiful must-see bird with the help of him. This was one of the best experiences for us in Costa Rica, thank you!

    The perfect birdwatching experience
    Thomas_H, Jan 2023
    Jason was an expert tour guide and birder. We had an amazing experience and saw so many beautiful birds. We started the day as absolute novice birdwatchers and felt confident in our ability to spot birds by the end of the tour. We hope to one day be as knowledgeable about birds as Jason!
    Response from Host, Feb 2023
    Thank you so much, you are a great birder!
    Fantastic Birding in Curi-Cancha
    Mike_G, Jan 2023
    Birdwatching in Curi-Cancha with Jason was fantastic! He has a great ear and was able to identify every sound we heard in the forest. He was also amazing at spotting birds high up in the canopy I never would’ve seen and quick to set up the scope so we could get a good view. We saw 46 species of birds on this hike along with a family of white faced monkeys, a bunch of Coatis, an Agouti, and some lizards, not to mention all the beautiful trees and flowers. Overall this was a wonderful experience and when I get back to Costa Rica I will be looking up Jason for another tour!

    Thanks a lot Mike! Any time!

    Birding withJason
    Andrew_P, Mar 2022
    Our guide Jason is very pleasant and knowledgeable about birding. We were so pleased to see a different species of birds especially the most beautiful quetzal. Jason was so accommodating to our schedule when we have to cancel our tour due to strong winds. We had a great time birdwatching with him. Thanks Jason!
