Maikol is a wonderfully knowledgeable guide for Corcovado. He’s patient, smart and funny. I highly recommend him if you’re looking for a great guide.

Maikol met me at the agreed upon time at La Leona lodge and we proceeded “into the wild” having done many nature tours around the world it became quickly clear that Maikol has a keen eye and knows the rainforest like the back of his hand. Excellent English facilitated my acquisition of interesting and useful facts about flora and fauna
Gracias para un paseo perfecto.

Maikol was recommended to me by a girl who had already visited Corcovado Nationalpark. I booked a two day tour with accommodation in La Sirena. It was a fantastic tour with lots of wildlife. Maikol has a very good knowledge about animals, especially birds. Thanks to his good scope we could see lots of animals even if they were far away. I can absolutely recommend Maikol as a guide.

Maikol is a terrific guide and a wonderful person. He came recommended by head of the sea turtle program at nearby Piro where our daughter was working for the summer college break. Maikol has spent his entire life on the Osa Peninsula and he seems to know nearly every square inch intimately. He constantly spotted sights and animals we would have simply walked past and his senses of what's going on around us was keen.
He knew a large cat was in the area and explained why it was so quiet in the jungle that day. Still, we saw all four species of monkeys, lots of birds, lizards, several exotic mammals (agouti, coati), blue morpho butterflies and some crazy big spiders! The jungle walk was fairly easy and strolls along the beach and fording a couple of rivers (with a welcome dip!) made the day enjoyable.
Throughout the entire day Maikol was very kind, friendly and knowledgeable. He patiently provided in-depth explanations about the exotic plants and animals and offers personal stories to make you feel part of his family. On the way back we caught up with a puma casually lounging a few yards off the trail. Magnificent!
A truly lovely trip of a lifetime to Costa Rica, with our Corcovado tour with Maikol a major highlight. Thanks again for a great day, Maikol! Pura Vida!
