Excellent tour with a knowledgeable and passionate guide!
, Jul 2021
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.
Best guide
, Jul 2021
Our guide was very knowledgeable and very engaging. He knows where to find the night creatures and knows about their habits. We enjoyed this adventure very very much.
Definitely worthwhile experience!

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
, 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!
Highlight of Costa Rica

The highlight of Costa Rica for me! Our guide was so knowledgeable and we were so fortunate to see many animals! I would 100% recommend this!
Another type of experience

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.

Had a great time! Tour guide was knowledgeable and helped me with taking pictures. Transportation was also provided.

Great Guide
, May 2021
Great guides, very kind and professional. I was a little scared at first but I was really glad I experienced the jungle at night
icon Response from Host , May 2021
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.
Night trip with Carlos
, May 2021
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
Good lesson
, May 2021
Beautiful tour, you have to be lucky to see animals but the guide was very careful in looking in all the corners and giving me lessons about the local fauna and flora
