About
Our job is the best in the World! We show people only some of the most amazing landscapes in Costa Rica, but we get to witness the awe in people's eyes when we show our country and our region. We believe that tropical nature has many more secrets than the ones you can perceive with your senses, the relations, and all the life systems that depend on these connections. And it is a privilege to discover them for all people's eyes and minds. Our guides are all professionals, certified and passionate about nature. They have a true appetite for knowledge and they will provide you with a true Costa Rican rainforest set of experiences.

Mike is the man!!!! Knowledgeable, passionate and patient all in one. Highly recommended! He saw way more animals than what we would have seen on our own.

The Best!
Apr 2021
The park tour with Mike was absolutely amazing! Mike has an extraordinary keen eye and spots animals with ease. We would have never seen the wildlife on our own. With the help of his spotting scope, Mike also captures once in a lifetime photos for you to take home. Overall it was such an enjoyable morning. Highly recommend this activity, Mike is the best and you will enjoy his guidance and company.

We had the privilege of taking this tour with Michael and I can't say enough great things about him and our tour!
He's friendly, extremely knowledgeable and quite funny! We saw almost every animal we set out with hopes of seeing and some that we didn't even know about. He is so in tune with the surroundings and nature, he would spot things that "normal" people could only spot with his help and a telescope. Some people in our group even thought there were stuffed animals planted for photo ops as they were so hard to see by the untrained eye. LOL
The beach is beautiful, the fruit and juice provided fresh and the people so friendly!
You really left this tour feeling like you not only gained knowledge of the park but a friend in Costa Rica.

Don't go WITHOUT Michael! 😁
Michael was super knowledgeable and accommodating. He is extremely good at what he does and has been doing it for a long time which shows with his knowledge and experience. He showed us everything that there was to see and communicated with the other guides to ensure we hadn't missed anything. Don't go WITHOUT Michael!

Over exceeded my expectations!
Firstly I want to say thank you Michael!! We started our morning expecting to be in a small group with another family but there was a change of plans and Michael upgraded us to a private tour free of charge. So already I was happy and we hadn't even started.
We entered the park and take note: it is a very popular national park! (for good reasons) so there is many other people on the trails so try to book early morning tours!
We almost did not book with a guide and almost walked alone and it would have been a huge mistake! Michael found so so many animals! We would never have spotted them otherwise. Now if you are a true animal lover and don't only like the fluffy animals then this is an incredible tour guide. He showed us frogs and insects and birds along with small reptiles while also spotting the more commonly loved sloths and monkeys. Flowers, trees and plants he was also very knowledgeable about.
He allowed me to hook my phone up to the telescope and we took amazing videos of the wildlife. I was in absolute awe.
Just amazing.
We opted to enjoy the day on the beaches in the national park at the end of the tour which was amazing.

All in all, an amazing tour and amazing guide!

Amazing time!
Mar 2021
Amazing time! Michael setup a private tour of Manuel Antonio National Park for our family of 4 (son 18 and daughter 15 yrs old) with Mauricio. I wasn't sure if our kids would be as excited about this tour since they like the thrill seeking adventures but it exceeded our expectations. Mauricio has an amazing personality and kept us engaged and laughing the whole time. We absolutely loved him and the tour! They have a tripod telescope that they carry during the tour to easily setup exactly what you need to see making it very easy. Mauricio was able to take our cell phone to further zoom in and take amazing pictures to remember the whole experience. You cannot take this tour without a guide and really see all the wildlife. We were amazed at how they were able to spot all the creatures. We saw several birds, deadly snake, frogs, sloths, monkeys, spiders, lizards/iguanas, etc. The tour took about 2 hrs. We stopped for a fruit snack & drink that came with the tour, and then ended at the beautiful beaches (Playa Manuel Antonio and Playa Espadilla Sur beaches). I highly recommend this tour as a MUST DO.

Exceeds expectations
Michael arranged multiple tours for us including Manuel Antonio. It was spectacular! We saw 3 sloths, monkeys, a bat, lizards, a toucan, and more! The guide was clearly an expert. It was beautiful and we also learned a lot. Fresh fruit, water, and bathrooms as well. The grand finale was the more gorgeous and calm beach I’ve ever seen. Use Michael for anything. He will 100% take care of you and goes above and beyond. He does exactly what he says.

Mauricio and Michael were fantastic! They catered the tour to our three young kids and had an excellent ability to spot nature while translating interesting information to us! Do not go to Manuel Antonio park without a tour guide!!!!

Mar 2021
We had a great time on our tour and our guide was so knowledgeable. He showed us sloths and birds and monkeys and lizards and frogs. The tour's driver picked us up and returned us to our house which was included in our tour and made the trip so easy and convenient. We had a nice snack of fruit and juice at the end of the tour. Restrooms were clean and available. There is also a fantastic trail made for wheelchairs (if needed). We had a nice time at the beach and it was beautiful. I highly recommend
