I thought this was a tour that I did last year but it was not. I was pleasantly surprised though that it was a walk near Manuel Antonio Park. We tried to visit the park earlier that day but all tickets were sold out. So I was happy that my nephews still got a park experience with a professional guide, even though it was at night. The tour was very intriguing and fun!

Educational & fun adventure with a very understanding staff
Jason_B, Feb 2024
I thought my kids would really enjoy this adventure & we were really excited about this educational tour. Unfortunately, my 10-year-old became very uncomfortable at the start of the tour. I greatly appreciate the staff’s understanding of our situation. Thank you!

A walk at night
Colleen_B, Feb 2024
Thanks to Harold! We saw a colourful 2 metre bright yellow and black snake and a vine-like snake, both arboreal; several different kinds of spiders, including many large tarantulas (from a distance-appreciated despite their being non venomous) and wolf spiders. Then there was the bizarre miniscule web spider that lines up the bodies of its prey along a single web thread. Couple kinds of frogs, one of which was a red eyed tree frog. Huge grasshoppers, tree scorpions that glow under uv (provided by our guide) and the only creepy bit-spider eyes reflecting our flashlights in the distance from a nest is a z a. Lots of them. Again, from a nice comfortable distance. Walking through the jungle at night was a surreal and magical experience. We always felt completely safe. Our excellent and highly educated/knowledgeable guide was fluent in English, important as our Spanish is rudimentary at best. Would do this again and recommend it to others.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
We're thrilled to hear about your incredible night jungle experience, thanks to Harold! It sounds like you encountered a fascinating array of wildlife, from colourful snakes to intriguing spiders and frogs.

We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to welcoming you back for another memorable journey! 🌿🐍🕷️🐸 Travel Costa Rica Tours team

Worth doing
Elizabeth_B, Feb 2024
Overall was worth doing but would have been better with a smaller group as it took a long time for each person to have their turn at viewing through the binoculars.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Thank you for providing your valuable feedback. . We understand your concerns regarding the group size and the time it took for each person to have a turn with the binoculars. While our standard group size is typically 8 people per guide, we acknowledge that your group 7 people. To address this issue and ensure your comfort, we also offer private tours where you can enjoy a more personalized experience with your own dedicated guide. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you on a private tour in the future, where we can tailor the experience to meet your specific needs and preferences. Travel Costa Rica Tours team
A little disappointing
Alan_l, Feb 2024
This was disappointing. The guide rushed us and though we saw several animal and insects students on our tour pointed out as many as the guide. Also we had to turn back on the trail because of a fed de lance but the guide continued to rush so we sat at the van waiting for 15 minutes
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Dear valued guests, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent tour experience. We sincerely apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience you encountered during your excursion with us. We regret to hear that you felt rushed during the tour and that the guide did not provide adequate time to observe and appreciate the wildlife. Ensuring our guests have a leisurely and enjoyable experience is of utmost importance to us, and we are deeply sorry if this was not reflected in your tour. Additionally, safety is our top priority, and encountering a fed de lance on the trail is a serious matter. We appreciate your understanding in turning back to ensure the safety of all participants. However, we acknowledge that the subsequent rush to continue the tour was not appropriate and should have been handled differently. Rest assured, we take your feedback seriously, and we will be addressing these concerns with our team to ensure that future tours maintain the highest standards of quality, safety, and customer satisfaction. Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience caused, and we hope that you will consider giving us another opportunity to provide you with a more enjoyable and memorable tour experience in the future. Warm regards, Travel Costa Rica Tours team
Night time in the forest is best
Yanick_L, Feb 2024
Our guide, Harold, was very good. He spotted some interesting fauna and made sure that we were careful where we stepped. We have done many of these in Costa Rica over the years, and we always see one or two things we’ve never seen; this time was no exception.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Thank you for your feedback! We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your tour with Harold and that you had such a positive experience. Our guides take great pride in their knowledge of the local flora and fauna, and it's wonderful to hear that Harold was able to showcase some interesting wildlife during your excursion. Safe travels!

So much wildlife! Amazing!
Kristian_J, Feb 2024
Our tour with Kevin was AMAZING! We saw snakes, spiders, several birds, lizards, insects, and even a pair of kinkajous hunting way up in the trees! Without our guide we wouldn't have seen anything! Our teenage kids (who are really into nature) were blown away!
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Thank you for sharing your experience! We are thrilled to hear that your tour with Kevin was amazing and that you were able to enjoy the incredible variety of wildlife. We are delighted to have contributed to creating unforgettable moments for your family, especially the nature-loving teenagers. We hope to welcome you again in the future! 🌿🐍🦎🦋
Disappointing
Nathalie_T, Jan 2024
This was disappointing. The guide did not explain anything on the second part of the trip and hardly found any animals, his partner did and some of the guests. General lack of knowledge, too busy giving instructions, bordering on rude. Not sure why we had to pay an extra 10 USD pp as walk was through what looked like hotel plots. Full marks on pick up timing though.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
As a local tour operator, we are genuinely disheartened to hear that your experience with our tour and guide fell short of your expectations. We understand your disappointment regarding the limited wildlife sightings; nature tours can indeed present challenges, and we regret that it didn't align with your expectations. We sincerely appreciate your acknowledgment of the punctuality in our pick-up service. Timeliness is a crucial aspect of our commitment to customer satisfaction. Regarding the entrance fee, we would like to clarify that it is explicitly mentioned as an exclusion in our tour details. Additionally, we take measures to ensure that our customers are well-informed by sending informative messages for each new booking. These messages explicitly state, "Please be mindful of the $10 entrance fee." It is surprising to learn that this information may not have been noticed before booking, especially considering our efforts to communicate it through WhatsApp messages. We apologize for any confusion and will review our communication processes to enhance clarity. We also sincerely regret any perception of rudeness from our guide. We take this matter seriously and will address it with our team promptly. Courtesy and respect towards our customers are fundamental values that we expect from our staff. Your feedback is invaluable to us, as it provides an opportunity for improvement. We are committed to delivering high-quality experiences, and we will work diligently to address these concerns and enhance our services for future guests. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention.

Amazing critters, knowledgeable guide
Ryan_P, Jan 2024
Fabio was an excellent and knowledgeable guide for us nature nerds. He did a great job keeping us safe in the jungle full of risks large and small, and we all had a great time. There is no comparing the safety or joy or sightsbwe experienced with him thsn if we walked the woods alone.
Response from Host, Jan 2024

Had a great time on this tour with Kevin! It's a relatively short trail around a hotel but we were still able to see bunch of animals. I would've never seen these animals without a guide so appreciated it tons. Also helped take amazing photos of these animals!
