I've gone to Corcovado National Park before, so I know how important it is to the local guides to protect the wildlife, to follow park rules, and to be good hosts. Unfortunately, on this second visit to the park, that was NOT our experience with...More

We had an amazing experience with Carlos on the Night Swim Plankton Tour for two reasons. First, the tour itself was magical- you enter the water from a calm beach about 5 minutes from the center of town and you’ll feel like a wizard in...More

We saw a great variety of fish. They took us to two different spots to snorkel. They have the perfect balance of keeping you safe without making it feel restricted. My wife and I highly recommend these guys.

We did Snorkeling at Cano Islands, The bioluminencent Plankton tour, Corcovado National Park, and the night walk with Pachecos and also stayed in their cabins perfectly located a 5 minute walk from the beach and store. Would highly recommend them!

We did several tours with this company, snorkeling at Cano Island, the hike at Corcovado, and the bioluminescent plankton tour. All were wonderful. I appreciated that while all the other guides at the Corcovado had their Fancy Columbia shirts, and hitec boots, our guide was...More

We did the floating tour with Pacheco tours. It was fun, but not worth the $65 p.p. Carlos was our guide, who seemed more intent on finishing the tour than ensuring we enjoyed ourselves. In our case, we drove 45 mins to a small trail...More

We had a great time! The hike in is really more of a walk until the very end. When you get closer to the waterfall, the path gets quite steep with lots of twists and turns. It's not dangerous and there are lots of roots...More
