Nice guide and we saw lots of wildlife
, Dec 2020
Tour guide picked us up and dropped us off to our Airbnb, which was off the main road and a trek to get to. Guide was informative and we saw lots of cool wildlife!

Very nice experience, with a great guide who knows a lot about the local fauna and flora! We got to see many bugs, slides and snakes, and even a limor and 2 sloths! I recommend

I was the only English speaker in the a group full of Spanish speakers and the guide was very accommodating. He pointed out many critters and insects and, even though there was a torrential downpour for a bit, it was still a great experience for the price

This tour was very enjoyable. I think I was expecting more frogs than we saw, but we did see lots of very cool things--frogs, bugs, birds, Kinkajous. No snakes on our visit, but they were definitely around, and the guide was very diligent and careful to protect our group and make sure we were aware of the potential dangers. Definitely a good value! It's very hard to take good photos at night. If you really care about this, spend plenty of time practicing at home before you go. The guide has a lot to show you and a set schedule. He tried to be very accommodating, but you can't spend too much time trying to get the perfect photo.

We had a good time on this tour and got to see a couple of animals however, I think the quality of experience may be contingent on the guide you get. Our guide was nice and knowledgeable, but was only filling in for someone else that night, so it seemed like it could have been better. Overall it was fun though.
Excursion nocturne décevante
, Feb 2020
Chauffeur peu engageant, minibus très sale. Ce qui devait être une excursion privée s’est transformée en excursion de 7 personnes. Le site d’accueil était un pauvre hangar. Les lampes de poche étaient de mauvaise qualité, faible. Notre guide Olmond a fait tout de même des efforts pour trouver les animaux. Son anglais est cependant approximatif.
