The tour was outstanding. Our guide was Efrain's cousin, Andres. We highly recommend him. He was equipped with a high power telescope- we saw two types of monkeys, two and three-toed sloths, frogs and birds. Andres tailored the tour to our desires and schedule.

Good service, good timing and the most important thing that they respect the pick up time from hotel which is not very often in Costa Rica.

I suggest spending the extra money to get these guys to show you things you'll never spot on your own. Efrain was my guide and he's personally committed to showing you all the places and animals he loves and knows since childhood. Highly recommend.

Efrain has a deep connection to Manuel Antonio, his family being one of the only ones to live in the area for generations before it became a national park. He was able to spot the smallest creatures from far away within a blink of an...More
