Hector made no promises but delivered great sightings. He is excellent at spotting animals and skilled at getting the group of 9 to view the find simultaneously. With a good command of English and willing to practice his French (and Dutch), he connected with every...More

Our expert guide was fantastic. We saw scorpion, tarantula and pigmy frog, and much more. A completely memorable lifetime experience to be traversing the rainforest by torchlight only surrounded by the choir of animal noises.

Interesting tour with very knowledgable local guide, Eduardo. Saw lots of bugs and rare Olingo over approx 2 hours. Torches provided but check the battery first! We walked the Preserve during the day and it was completely different in the dark, I'd definitely recommend doing...More

I have visited Some Nighttours in Monteverde and Valle Escondido is probably my favorite one. Although it is on the trails belonging to a Hotel, the preserve is huge and it’s an amazing place and they have very professional and knowledgeable guides. It is also...More
