Honestly, i was sceptical at the beggining, since the whole park was crowded, i thought it will be dissaster, we wont be able to see anything. But the Denise is the real MVP. He saw animals i would never be able to see alone, picked some great angles, explained everything like a pro! I deffinitely recommend it to any travelers who are comming to Manuel Antonio to book these guys! Pura Vida!

What a great experience! Michael is so knowledgeable and friendly! He was able to spot animals I never would have seen, and he knew so much about the flora and fauna around us. He helped me take some great photos, too. The whole experience was super easy from the hotel pick up to the nature walk to meeting our driver on the way back. I’m so glad I booked my tour with Michael!

Excellent trip! Our guide Milena was so lovely and is clearly passionate about what she does. She is a trained scientist as well as a wonderful teacher and was able to maintain a level of interest for everyone in the group. The park itself is amazing: we saw several sloths (two and three toed!), howler monkeys, white faced monkeys, several reptiles, birds and beautiful plants. They provided fruit and time to swim on a pristine beach while keeping our belongings safe. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip - thank you!

Our tour with Michael was a truly wonderful experience and without him we wouldn't have seen most of the animals. He was very friendly and highly knowledgeable about the animals, trees and plants. The park was busy but our group size was small and the tour felt personal and Mike enabled us to enjoy the experience at a relaxed pace. Mike's skill with the spotting scope allowed us to see amazingly close up and detailed views of sloths, monkeys, birds, insects and lizards which he expertly photographed and uploaded to our phones. The park itself is beautiful and is home to an amazing diversity of wildlife. The tour was rounded of by visiting a stunning secluded beach and swim in wonderfully warm tranquil ocean. Overall an unforgettable experience and I highly recommend Mike as a guide.
