We did the night tour with Andrés and he was a fantastic guide! After speaking to him for just a few minutes, I knew he understood nature and wildlife to an extent I couldn't previously fathom. He's a trained biologist, and was able to provide detailed, compelling explanations for everything we saw and he had an amazing eye, detecting birds other tours that were happening concurrently did not see. He was just as excited as we were and is truly passionate about his work. A night tour with Andrés is an absolute must in Costa Rica

After few seconds with Andy you know that you will live something particular, you perceive the good vibes and you guess it will be the same for the animals. He really loves what he is doing. He takes time for searching, finding, showing and explaining about vegetals and animals. We had the chance to see 2 couples and one single Quetzal thanks to him ;-)
Many thanks Andy !!

We went on our first trip to Costa Rica together in 2016 and stumbled upon Andres across the street from where we were eating lunch.

We were so excited when he told us he would be able to take us on a private night walk. This was one of the most memorial experiences of my entire life. I learned so much from Andres that I still talk about today while I am singing the praises of how amazing this experience was. We saw kinkajous, sleeping hummingbirds (with their beaks up!), and countless bugs, critters, etc. We also got to see hummingBATS with night vision goggles. All along the way, Andres explained EVERYTHING with a natural expertise, and even took pictures for us (attached!)

We are coming back to Costa Rica for the first time since that incredible trip, and it dawned on us that we never shared the love on Trip Advisor. We will absolutely be seeking out Andres in Monteverde again, and can't wait to be back in the Cloud Forest.

Andrés was our guide through the famous Monteverde reserve. We began with little expectations for our private guided tour, and left with a memorable and enchanting experience! Andrés’ wealth of experience and knowledge began piecing together the landscape, the history, the reality, the legend, the magic, and the beauty that makes Monteverde such a special place. In our morning walk we spotted flowers, orchids, ancient avocado trees, medicinal plants, hummingbirds and little green toucans!? We spent a while observing a family of howler monkeys eating fruit, sunbathing on the treetops while their babies played around. As if that wasn’t enough, THE majestic bird, a female Quetzal, gave us an appearance! We recommend you don’t skip a private tour with Andres! Book it now! We will return soon for a Night Walk Tour with our new friend and guide.

Andres was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the Monteverde cloud forest. He went out of his way to show us the quetzal, considered the king of the birds. He made sure we got to see so many species of birds as well as wildlife. He is very passionate about saving the ecosystem of the Monteverde cloud forest.

Andy is awesome! What a thoroughly knowledgeable, funny, lovely guy Andy is. He is extremely passionate about his beautiful Monteverde and is excited to share it with his customers. My husband (79) and me , (fresh out of hospital with a serious health issue) spent about 4 hours with Andy in the Monteverde cloud forest, and the same evening i took a night tour with him

Of course i wanted to see a quetsal and Andy made it happen, all the while catering to our physical limitations. Andy is an excellent conversationalist and we discussed many interesting subjects over the six hours we spent together as well as learning a ton about Costa Rica’s history, fauna and flora. We also met, (with the help of Andy and his state of the art optical equipment, ) many examples of the plants snd creatures that we had hoped to see. .

If you want a personalized and thoroughly enjoyable, fascinating tour of the beautiful area of Monteverde, i URGE you to look no further than Andy’s Forest Alive tours. I guarantee you’ll have the time of your life. Do this! You will get excellent photo ops and leave determined to return.

Thanks Andy, we’ll be back!

We had a great day today in Monteverde Cloudforests with our guide Andres.
He spoke perfect german AND english.
Having him as a guide made the trip to the park so much better.
His explanations about the plant and animal world were interesting and easy to understand. He pointed out animals we would have never seen without him, helped us to take amazing pictures and educated us in a very entertaining and funny way.
Communication with him was super easy too.
Highly recommended and worth every dollar.

What a wonderful experience! We went on three guided hikes with Andres in different reserves at different times, including the night tour. Andres’ knowledge and enthusiasm is unbeatable! We learned so much about the diversity of the forest and spotted many birds and bugs that we never would have seen on our own. I highly recommend his services if you are going to Monteverde. He has all the equipment and knowledge to find the wildlife and get some great photos!

We had a private tour with Andy in the cloud forest today with our kids (4&7). Andy is very knowledgeable and will tell you everything you need to know. He listened to our request on making it relaxing/enjoyable for the kids and was very patient as we walked around. We all got to see the incredible landscapes/learn about the vegetation and see some amazing wildlife. He even stopped en-route a few times where we managed to get some of the best shots of monkeys in Costa Rica; lucky :). His equipment meant we have some incredible pictures and videos too. The trip worked perfectly for us. Gemma and max hayden

Super day with our exceptional knowledgable local guide Andres. This man is truly an Encyclopedia of all things living in the forest. Without him we would not seen anywhere near the things we did.
He was very attentive to detail, took time to really explain interesting facts about the natural environment and the make up of the different layers of forest and had an array of additional equipment to enhance our experience.
An amazing day, with an exceptional guide .
