Javier is an AMAZING tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about Costa Rica. This website was created by him. I definately recommend checking it out. He has a background in biology and is able to spot animals from almost anywhere.

We had very good time in Costa Rica while Javier showed us all the best places. Very affordable and professional. Just ask him a question- he would be happy to help you. If you would like to see real Costa Rica- he is the best choice of price and quality. Pura Vida!
