What people are saying about Quepos

The tour itself was great BUT we gave it 4 stars bc we didn’t see very many animals. Just a few birds and iguanas that we would’ve seen most anywhere else in CR. But like I said everything else was excellent from transportation, to our guide Guiner who was an avid birder, to the boat driver, and lastly dinner which was typical CR meal and incredibly delicious!!

Due to the pandemic, the tour through the mangroves was carried out for us alone. The guide was good, the boat driver was well-versed and pointed out many animals such as snakes, frogs and birds. Breakfast was rescheduled at our request (instead of gallo pinto we got toast with fruit).

Magnificent. Instructive. Animals in their natural environment .. The extra passionate and fascinating Raoul guide ..
