Beatriz will appreciate knowing that our son John told us on our flight back home to West Virginia that the night jungle tour was «my favorite part of the whole trip!» She was great with him, tweaking the lessons towards him, asking him questions, engaging him. He & a 2 1/2 yr old girl got to handle a small snake, look for bugs and spiders, participate fully in the animal night life. We all loved the herbal iced «tea» at walk’s end. Please send us the recipe, Beatriz!! Gracias por todo!!

Josue and the Animals

Rated 5 out of 5

We loved our tour with Josue. He was patient and kind, knew all the animals & where to find them (we got the feeling they don’t move far) and he knew all the people, too! Costa Ricans are so friendly towards each other & chummy. His interaction with other Ticos was equally fascinating. He talked to everybody and shared with them also the information about the animals. This is his passion. We watched the juvenile squirrel monkeys at play, the sloths (Mama & baby) very sluggish way up high (we would never have found them ourselves). We saw bats and tree frog and Common pauraque sleeping, howler monkeys looking lethargically drunk, and Capuchin monkeys acting cheeky. Josue knows all the bird song, too (though he’s not so keen on the birds) – he has good ears & can imitate well – so birders: Josue knows his stuff! He waited for us to enjoy the beach at walk’s end, probably half hour. Thanks, Josue!

We had such a great time and Juan Campos was an amazing guide. A tour guide is a must in my opinion – although we would have seen white faced monkeys, eventually, having a guide allowed us to see so much more. The guide was amazing at finding animals just by listening. We saw 2 different sloths, an anteater, red-eyed frog, squirrel monkeys and a lot of white faced monkeys. Was also great to hear more details about the animals. Would highly recommend!

Amazing ride with our young kids

Rated 5 out of 5

We brought our kids (7, 5, and 2) for their first time riding horses. They had a double saddle for our 2 year old to ride with one of us, and the 5 and 7 year old rode their own horses. Alfonso (our guide) led the 5 year old’s horse, and was incredibly patient and helpful with the kids’ nervousness and their lack of experience. Alfonso told us about the different plants growing in the area, and pointed out some squirrel monkeys along the way. He brought our group to a smaller waterfall that was appropriate for our kids to swim in. Overall, it was very individualized and perfect for our family. We would highly recommend this tour.

We did this tour early in the morning and really enjoyed it. Without Mile’s expert assistance, we would never have spotted all these animals. Mile not only has the eye for spotting these animals in the dense jungle, she was also able to give us excellent information about the fauna and flora. And she did it all in a very friendly way and in excellent English.
Many thanks Mile!

We had the pleasure of attending the park guided by Beatriz, who provided us with amazing and interesting explanations, both in Spanish and English, great attitude with our kids, outstanding ability to spot the wild life in the dense flora, and all with a smile and lots of patience.

Beatriz nos atendió fenomenal desde el primer momento, nos explicó perfectamente todo lo que preguntábamos sobre cada especie que nos mostraba, sobre la biodiversidad del parque y de Costa Rica en general. Siempre estuvo muy paciente para mostrarnos a través de su telescopio y grabar videos y tomar muchas fotos para todos los que íbamos en el tour. Sin duda sin su guía no hubiéramos disfrutado ni el 30% de lo que el parque ofrece.

Night jungle with all its magical sounds was mesmerizing!
Ficus tree, 30 years old Bromellia, Oophaga poisonous dart frog, bull frog – poisonous, grows up to 0.5 Kg, Amblypygi is a cross between a scorpion and a spider, called a tailless scorpion, male and female golden orb spider nephila, brazilian banana spider – its bite sends you to the hospital, gladiator frog, Red eye leave frog, and Jesus Christ lizard – runs on the water 1.5 meters per second. We were looking for snakes and caiman crocodiles but did not see any this time. Beatriz is amazing tour guide. She is educated and knowledgeable; very excited about nature and beauty of rainforest. Beatriz takes stunning photos and videos using your camera, just ask her. Also ask Beatriz about her future educational projects. Very nice and exciting person. She deserves every minute of your time. Tipping is welcomed too. Definitely must go tour.

Cesar was our guide and he could not have been better. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and can identify every sound and every insect we saw. I would definitely recommend wearing the wellies (rubber boots for Americans!) that they provide to protect your feet and ankles. Sadly we didn’t see any snakes but the amazing spiders, possums and tree frogs more than made up for it. A highly enjoyable experience, I definitely recommend it.

We’re so happy we signed up for this tour. Our guides were Cesar and Beatrice. They were both very knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about their profession. We got to see lots of frogs, toads, millipedes, caiman, spiders, lizards, whip scorpions, bats, opossums, and lots of other animals in their native home. We learned a lot about the local flora and fauna, and really got to appreciate the natural beauty of Costa Rica. We would never be brave enough to go into the jungle at night on our own, but we felt very safe and comfortable with our guides. We’re so glad we got to see a glimpse of the nocturnal world, and we now have some very cool photos to share with our family and friends. Beatrice has a great eye for photography, and will gladly help you take the perfect photo. Thank you for an awesome adventure 🙂

We did this tour on a dry day, so there were notably less creatures and activity than we would have gotten on a rainy night. But we didn’t mind, we loved the experience and our guide was very knowledgable about the forrest. More than 50% of the wildlife in the rainforest comes out at night, so you will see the forrest like you would never otherwise. Highly recommend!
Everyone was very COVID friendly and wore masks the entire time.

Our tour happened to fall on a very rainy evening, which isn’t even a bad thing considering how many night time creatures come out on rainy nights. Our tour guide, Beatrice, was so pleasant and very knowledgeable. She helped us get pictures of all the frogs and insects we saw. The location of the tour takes you on a very promising up and coming forest, all focused on reservation and conservation, as well as building new gardens. Very encouraging to see of such a biodiverse country. We hadn’t initially looked into night tours, but were recommended one by a fellow tourist, and we are so happy we did it.

Highly recommend this tour, the forest is magical at night and we saw so many species up close. Our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, the trails are quite flat and easy to walk in sturdy shoes. We came away with a greater understanding of the forest ecosystem here. It’s very humid, take a water bottle!
