Omar is a great guide, he knows absolutely everything about Manzanillo's refuge, and will make sure to meet your expectations : he made sure to find a sloth because I told him I wanted to see one. He showed us medicinal plants, animals, birds and lanscapes while telling us the history of Manzanillo and its people and the role of... More

Omar took our family (3 adults, 2 kids ages 10 and 12) on a hike through the jungle. He was amazing in his knowledge. We learned so much and had such a wonderful time. Omar is personable and enjoyable. He also took us to the Bri Bri indians for a tour of authentic Indian life in Costa Rica. They shared... More

Not knowing really who we were looking for, Omar sauntered up and asked if we were waiting for him, when we said yes, he told us he just had to run home to get... More

My family of five was treated to an absolute delight in our jungle tour with Omar. From ants to snakes to spiders to sloths to birds to plants and trees, Omar was a true wealth of knowledge. And beyond that, he was able to share that knowledge at a level that was great for our kids and still interesting to... More

Our jungle tour with Omar was definitely one of the highlights of our visit. Starting out with the smells and tastes of a tropical garden -- ylang ylang, citronella, quinine, miracle fruit -- and then venturing into the forests to see the monkeys, snakes, and the spectacular trees. Omar has so much knowledge to share -- we definitely learned a... More

Our first tour was a nature walk through Manzanillo and at the end of the tour, we both agreed we only wanted to book with Omar for the rest of our vacation. Omar knows... More

Omar's jungle tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica. His extensive knowledge of the Flora and Fauna and his ability to locate and point out interesting sights makes his tour an extremely rewarding experience. We were shown four poisonous snakes on the tour in a safe manner, and without him we wouldn't have seen any... More
