    Best way to start our trip in Costa Rica
    PhyllisKlein, Dec 2023
    We had an absolutely fabulous day with Luis - he loves what he does and it shows. We were able to see a great deal - even he was excited to see a river otter. The tour was perfect - but combined with his knowledge of the animals, it was truly fantastic.

Alberto was fantastic as a tour guide and driver, great knowledge of flora and fauna and very pleasant personality to spend the day with. Highly recommend to people who appreciate wonderful nature and the great adventure!
    Wonderful experience

    We enjoyed the expert guidance of Alberto in orchestrating a memorable day exploring the varied wildlife-birds, monkeys, reptiles and sloths. The round trip boat excursion provided another perspective from the rainforest walk.
    Amazing day on the river
