Another great experience with Avispas. This was one of our favourite days during this trip to Costa Rica. There is so much to see on the Tempisque river and the trip to and from was also interesting and enjoyable. Our driver/guide Chepe pointed things out along the way and stopped whenever we wanted to take photos or just get a... More

We booked several trips with Avispas, and would recommend them very highly. They: - offer well structured tours; - have very knowledgeable (and fun!) guides; - clearly know how to get the best out of each destination (great meals, access at less busy times, etc etc); - are flexible and accommodating; - offer very reasonable prices and great value for...

Wow! What a perfect trip we had with Avispas Adventures! Amy's knowledge and explanation of the turtles was brilliant. There was a lot of things that we did not know that goes on behind the scenes, and we were lucky enough to experience it. What an adventure and deep learning process for my daughters. This is one to mark off... More

It was an amazing day spent watching the Olive Ridley Turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs. Thanks to Avispas Adventures and Amy Lentz for the experience of a life time!

I had been wanting to see the turtles come to shore in Costa Rica to leave their eggs for some time. We received word from Avispas Adventures last Saturday that it had started and Sunday would be an ideal day to go. With short notice, they arranged for the tour of a lifetime! From the moment we met the driver... More

This was the best tour ever! My daughter and I were so lucky to have been able to go on this adventure to see the turtles coming ashore to nest, both to see this fairly rare occurrance, and also to have met Amy and Chepe. Amy led the tour in a relaxed yet informative style. She was personable, knowledgeable, fun,... More

Some locals organized a tour with Avispas Adventures to see the turtles nesting at Playa Octional and I was fortunate enough to join in on the fun. WOW! So amazing to see! I loved that Amy took photos of us as we adventured. Thank you, Amy!

Great tour with Amy who is an excellent and knowledgable guide. Its a long dirt road into the park and something you don't want to do in your own car.
