Johnny was a great guide! He went above and beyond to show us everything we wanted and more! We would highly encourage anyone to take Johnny's tour! Just a note: you'll need to pay the entrance for the park. It was $8.

Johnny is hilarious. He makes nature walks through the rain super fun! This was a highlight of the trip between the creative narratives, local history, and adventurous scouting. We had many wildlife sightings and learned about the plant life too. We saw a viper, kinkajou, armadillo, red eyed frog and sleeping hummingbirds even on a cloudy rainy night. We felt very safe exploring the woods with him. He clearly has a passion for his profession which made the experience enjoyable. Highly recommend!

Family of 6 from 12 years to 60 went on the tour together. Everyone had a great time. Worth the money spent. Tour guide was knowledgeable on where to find the animals. We saw snakes, hummingbirds, ants, bugs, sloths and a few others. The guide was great at being polite and also educated the group while keeping everyone safe from the dark trails. Worth every penny would highly recommend.

A fun night in the forest

Our guide was great. He picked us up at the hotel and took us to the night walk location. He brought flashlights and a spotting scope to see the nightlife. He was knowledgeable and passionate about the tour and the animals we saw. The walking was fairly easily and we saw a lot of different animals. If you have your mind set on seeing just one species this may not be for you.

Johnny is articulate and knowledgeable about the cloud forest. He was a fun guide and tried very hard to help us see a sloth. We didn't find one, but we did see many other exciting jungle creatures, including a couple tarantulas, 2 green sidewinder pit vipers, several frogs, a large walking stick, and other interesting insects. He provided us with flashlights for the nocturnal walk (although the battery in mine was low and light was very weak so switched to using my phone light). It seems like meeting at 8 om would be too early for a night-time walk, but it was dark in Monteverde by 6:30 pm!

This was an amazing tour!! Our guide was thoughtful, very knowledgeable on everything from plants to animals. We gave 8 and 12 year old kids who had a great time. Our guide took his time to make sure we had an unforgettable experience. We took pictures through his telescope, a video of the jungle sounds, saw creatures not otherwise visible.

We had booked this night walk, but were unable to go because of a thunderstorm. Instead, our guide, Johnny agreed to do a bird watching tour instead. It was fantastic!! Johnny was a great guide and we saw a ton of birds and howler monkeys. It was a GREAT experience.

Wonderful Walk in the Woods

We did our night walk at the beginning of the rainy season, in mid-May, with Johnny. Overall, this was a wonderful tour and an excellent value. Johnny was an amazing guide, spending over 2 hours with us walking the trails of a private nature reserve in Monteverde. Johnny demonstrated his expert knowledge of the area and pointed out tons of wildlife that otherwise wouldn't be visible to the untrained eye. In one visit, we saw sloths, two types of very hard to find frogs, a few armadillos (really cool), and a side-striped pit viper. For me, this was a highlight of the trip and I'm glad that Johnny was able to find a single 18 inch long thin green snake. In a tree. At night. In the middle of a dark forest. Johnny is the consummate naturalist of the Monteverde area - if you're planning to visit Monteverde, Johnny's tour is THE best money that you'll spend.

We had a great night hike with a terrific guide, Johnny. He took us to a small, private reserve instead of to a larger, more crowded park. My wife and I were the only ones with Johnny, and there were only two other tour groups in the park that night. We saw a Green Side-Stripped Palm Viper in a tree within the first five minutes of the tour, a Kinkajou, a Tarantula, and several frogs and toads. We did not find a Sloth, but Johnny took us to several locations outside the park searching for this animal. He really went above and beyond to make this tour a great experience. We highly recommend this tour. In fact, we liked Johnny so much that we hired him to take us bird watching early the next morning, when he was able to find a male quetzal bird for us in the parking area of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve.
