Our guide Greiven spoke good English. He gave us the option of not going on the night walk because of the rainy weather. But, we only had the one option. It was very wet and somewhat slippery. But, we saw a feeding sloth, two possums,...More

Enjoyed the 2-hour night hike. Roy was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and he spoke good English. We saw a variety of creatures by flashlight. The sloth was the most interesting. The cost for 2 adults and a child was $65. I wouldn’t say it...More

We went on this night hike with our EF Tour group. It was amazing. They limited each group to 10 people, and our guide was incredibly knowledgeable. He answered all our questions and identified all the animals and insects we saw - tarantula, pit viper,...More

I was a little underwhelmed by this tour. True you get to see a lot - green viper, sloths,scorpions and lots of insects but I felt that the walk was very staged and rehearsed with the staff knowing exactly where things were rather than finding...More

Not sure whether our night was good or not but we saw snakes, two little frogs, sloths, iguanas, tarantulas and sleeping birds. Bit arduous walking for 2 hours in the dark up and down paths in he forest but well worth it

We did the night walk this evening and it was great! Our tour had 1 guide along with 7 people. The guide found everything from birds sleeping in branches to snakes to insects to sloths. This is a great way to see the animals in...More

We went on the night tour at the recommendation of Denis - our guide at Sky Adventures. He met us right when we arrived and took us on a private tour. His enthusiasm for the Costa Rican wildlife was contagious. We had a great time...More
