    Thank you so much for that amazing experience!
    Thank you so much for that amazing night walking tour! My personal highlight was to let this huge spider crawl over my hand :) that was amazing! Also all the other animals you spotted like the yellow snake etc. I’ll remember this experience for a long time.

    The best tour you can do in Cahuita!
    On 01.09. I was with Mathieu (+506 7228 5355 also WhatsApp - spanish, english or french) at night in the jungle of Cahuita. The tour starts at 6 pm near "The Goddess Garden Eco Resort" and leads first along a paved forest path and later across a former cacao plantation. Depending on where you are coming from, you can get there either by car (doesn't have to be a 4x4), taxi or bicycle. You will be back at the starting point around 9 pm. Long pants, hiking shoes, mosquito protection, flashlight and rainwear (depending on the weather) are recommended. Those who were thrilled by the few animal sightings in Cahuita National Park will be overwhelmed by this tour :) . Besides several different insects and reptiles there are also with a little luck nocturnal mammals (Kinkajou) to see. Mathieu is extremely good at finding the different animals and knows about each one. He can also tell a lot about the plants and the general processes in the jungle (walking trees, bromeliads, etc.). Despite many explanations and the search for hidden animals, he always pays close attention to his environment (ant trails, spider webs, etc.) and the safety of his clients (notes about holes in the path, roots, etc.). I did not feel uncomfortable at any moment, although the situation at night in the jungle is quite different than during the day :) . Attached you will find a small selection of pictures of the things we have seen. It must be said that a little luck is always part of it. After all, it is almost untouched nature, nothing is fed or somehow influenced. The animals are just there or not. But if they are there, I'm sure Mathieu will find them for you. Conclusion: By far an absolute highlight of my Panama/ Costa Rica trip and recommended for every nature loving person! Mathieu is very enthusiastic about what he does and it was great fun to walk with him through the jungle. I would always do it again. Just write him and make an appointment, you will not regret it.

    Great experience
    Mateo is a great guide with a lot of experience and enthusiasm for what he is doing. We did the jungle night tour today and were very lucky to see that many animals. Starting from just a few meters after we’ve parked the car with an eyelash pitviper, to many frogs, spiders, scorpions, basilisks and other animals. We never felt unsave with him and had just a great time exploring the forest. Would absolutely do it again and recommend it to everybody who‘s in cahuita area.

    Awesome Experience!
    We had an incredible night walk with Mathieu! He knows so much about the animals and the nature and we were happy to discover so many animals during our night walk. He was extremely enthusiastic in finding animals especially those ones we have hoped for! My husband was so excited that he booked the same tour again two days later. If you would like to have a highlight during your Costa Rica visit in Cahuita book a tour with Mathieu!

The tour was really spectacular, highly recommended for everyone visiting Cahuita! Being in the jungle at night gives you a really close connection to the nature around you. Mateo is super friendly and a great guide. His passion is awesome and it is great to see how respectful he’s about the beautiful Costa Rician nature! I assume he has seen everything multiple times but was as excited as me seeing it for the first time. He explained a lot of highly interesting things and made the whole walk super interactive.
I also had the chance to interact with some of the animals under Mateos guidance with full respect to protect the animals. One of my best experiences! Thank you Mateo!

(He also gave us a lot of tips and contacts for other activities 👍)

The tour was a lot of fun, very interesting and a great experience overall!
Matheo is a young but very talented guide. It is very impressive how experienced he already is. He guided us well trough the dark jungle and was still able to spot a lot of animals. Wether it were small insects, bigger spiders, all kinds of frogs, bats or other smaller or bigger mammals, Matheo could explain a lot about every single one.
The coolest part was when he catched one of the snakes for us to have a closer look and to take some good pictures!

Would really recommend this tour for everyone who is not that afraid of all the spiders and snakes around. Matheo takes good care of you! You do need to be patient and a bit lucky with weather and other conditions to see all the cool animals, he is good at spotting the animals that are there but he can't influence them to be present.
And come prepared for mosquitoes!

Mateo is an amazing guide and already a good friend. I have done multiple night tours with him and we have enjoyed the incredible wild life of Costa Rica. Mateo is an experienced guide with a very good eye to spot all types of animals, and great knowledge about them. Going with him to the forest is a true experience and not a conventional touristic attraction. Really recommended.
