Although we didn’t actually meet Mike, we spoke thru text and he seemed very nice. His tour guide Jacob, who led our group of 8 was absolutely amazing. His knowledge was incredible and he truly got excited with every species he spotted for us. He made sure we all looked thru his spotting scope and he even made sure we had pictures. The fresh fruit and juice they provided us was very nice.

Our naturalist guide Jacob was the best guide ever. Not only was he so knowledgeable about everything, you could tell he was so passionate about his job. We saw Everything we wanted to and more. He found a grasshopper in a tree 100ft away, both sloths, all the monkeys, shark, tons of birds, insect's, lizards. We were taught a bunch and highly recommend Jacob as your guide!

Jacob was very helpful and friendly. He took time so everyone can see the animals through his scope. He also took iPhone pictures of the wildlife through his scope for people who wanted it. We could not find as many animals as I hoped for. Overall good experience!

I highly recommend Naturalist Mike and his team for your tour of Manuel Antonio Park. They were so accommodating and knowledgeable. Our tour guide, Jacob (I hope I remembered his name properly!), was so knowledgeable and patient with our group. We had 3 small children (1,3, and 5) and he was super accommodating. Naturalist Mike even made our tour private because of the children!!!! Do not hesitate to book with them!
