If you want to avoid the big tour companies and experience Arenal and La Fortuna from a local, Angelo is definitely your guy. He is so much fun and had us laughing the whole day. We did the combo tour which consisted of the Arenal Hanging Bridges, La Fortuna waterfall and Arenal Volcano. It was quite rainy the whole day... More

Three vacationing adults were led by a knowledgeable and personable guide on our January walk here. You will see and learn more if you are guided. The temperature was comfortable but humid. Take a rain coat just in case. We saw 23 species of birds including Crested Owl, Orange-billed Trogon, Crested Guan, and Red-lored Parrot. Mammals observed were peccary, agouti,... More

We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide, whom we now like to call a friend. Angelo was amazing! From trekking through the rainforest with his SUPER TELESCOPE so that we could see everything up close and personal...to taking us to the best places to eat.

Angelo guided our group through the hanging bridges at the Monteverde Rainforest. He was superb! Very knowledgeable about everything, from the plants and trees, to all of the animals. He was enthusiastic, upbeat, and very friendly, which made the trek even more fun. Angelo pointed out many things we ordinarily would have missed (like a tiny viper snake). He also... More

Angelo is the best guide. We did the hanging bridges tour with him in Arenal and we were not disappointed. His English is great, he is very funny and incredibly knowledgeable about Costa Rica and its animals. We were able to see a pit viper, bats, frogs, toads, owls and so much more. He set up his telescope a few... More
