Overview

I offer high quality tours of discovery, expertly designed to fulfill the adventurous spirit in you. Reef and rainforest explorations are edifying and exhilarating - and often hands-on! Corcovado National Park is a breathtaking site no matter how many times you tour its vast unspoiled beauty. I am located in Drake Bay, near to Corcovado, right in the heart of one of Costa Rica's most untouched ecological wonders. The Osa Peninsula still holds many surprises for those seeking to see nature, all Corcovado area can only be described as "the most biologically intense place on Earth" (National Geographic).

We did the floating tour with Pacheco tours. It was fun, but not worth the $65 p.p. Carlos was our guide, who seemed more intent on finishing the tour than ensuring we enjoyed ourselves. In our case, we drove 45 mins to a small trail...More

We had a great time! The hike in is really more of a walk until the very end. When you get closer to the waterfall, the path gets quite steep with lots of twists and turns. It's not dangerous and there are lots of roots...More

Our family of 4 enjoyed the floating tour about a year ago over spring break. Not much water at the time, but our guides made sure that we had a great experience. The highlights included jumping off of high rocks, seeing a sloth, and the...More

Good tour business and reliable. Carlos is an awesome guide and is a great guy. He's good with kids and made it fun and educational. Wouldn't know a better place to go to book your tours.

Snorkeling was great. We saw a lot of colorful fish and two turtles. I would prefer longer time for snorkeling to spending time on beach after lunch. But it was ok - I saw turtles, I'm satisfied :)
