Overview

Visit the tarantulas way with me together at night to explore the rain forest from Cahuita. Bird-eating spiders, frogs, bats and many insects with warranty. Listen the night sounds of nature on a leisurely stroll through a Zoo without fences. This is certainly an exciting and enjoyable experience for your vacation.

We have done several night tours to see animals and this was definitely the best one. Chris has an unbelievable talent for spotting animals and knows many things upon them, especially snakes, spiders and insects.
