The experience with Freddy was amazing! He is an excellent tour guide and it is fascinating how much he knows about his area. He answered all my questions and so much more. I would recommend this to anyone around here who wants to learn about this beautiful part of Costa Rica. You will see wild animals and leave with a lot more knowledge than you had before. Thank you Freddy!

The tour happened to be a solo tour just Freddy and me. It was a customized tour at my slow pace, not as slow as the sloths but almost !! ;-) He spotted species I would have never found with my own eyes and took great pictures for me. He has unlimited knowledge of the Costa Rican fauna and it’s a pleasure to listen to him.

Freddy was an incredible guide! It’s very clear that he loves what he does, and very knowledgeable of the area. There was no rush- we sat and admired a mother sloth with her baby to our heart’s content. Freddy is very astute to his surroundings; would have never been able to spot the cool wildlife without him. Thank you, Freddy!

The tour was great! Freddy is really friendly and knows a lot about the Flora and Fauna of the area. We were able to take great pictures of the sloths, monkeys and more. This tour is a lot more private then other areas and we didn‘t feel rushed at all. You could feel that Freddy is very passionate about what he‘s doing. I recommend this experience!

Freddy is a fantastic guide and so adept at spotting animals. We saw two-toed sloths (one with a nursing baby), capuchin monkeys with babies, iguanas, a tiger crane, and more. You can really watch the animals up close through his scope and we loved seeing them in their natural environment. Freddy Is a knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and his love and understanding of his country’s jungle life shines through. Highly recommend this tour for a personalized experience with an expert guide!
