After a busy day we did consider missing the night walk, but decided we should go. We were collected from our hotel and driven to the walk and split into groups. There were about a dozen people in our group, which at times seemed too...More

Lovely experience and we really enjoyed seeing (and hearing!) the jungle at night. For the first 15 minutes it felt as if it was just our little group (of 12) but it soon became apparent that there were many other groups which spoiled the experience...More

For the actual tour, I would have given four stars, but I will get to that later. Herbert is a fantastic guide, hope you get him. He doesn't rush through anything. He is very kind and informative. The problem with tours is you might not...More

The area is rich with wildlife but there are too many groups going around a relatively small area. You 'spot stuff' then have to find somewhere quieter to learn about the animal rather than enjoying the view of the animal.

Where to begin? First of all, our guide Marco was outstanding! We saw countless animals: 3 sloths (including a mom and baby), pit viper, red eyed tree frog, orange knee tarantula, scorpion and more. Marco was fun and informative; I would recommend you ask for...More

Perhaps I'm biased because I had excellent night walks in sarapiqui and tortuguero. But this place was too touristy and crowded. We did see a few interesting wildlife, not sure I'd recommend this though.
