We did the Mangrove Boat Tour with Juan Brenes and had an amazing private boat tour. We saw an abundance of wildlife and Juan was extremely knowledgeable about the mangroves, the wildlife, and Costa Rican history. It is a very relaxing tour.

My wife and I went to the "Manuel Antonio Nacional Park" tour with the guide Roy. He is the best! He is a real professional! One of the best guided tours we have ever taken all around the world! He has the eyes of an hawk and the knowledge of an encyclopedia. In addition to the kind person that he... More

I had a friend recommend this company and I booked the Mangrove boat tour with Juan. He was prompt on email, which I really appreciated, and took my husband and I out on a great tour of the mangrove. We enjoyed the ride and Juan's expertise at spotting birds, iguanas, and even the smallest of anteaters who was sleeping way... More

This tour was highly recommended to me by my cousin, who visited the mangroves with Juan Brenes and thoroughly enjoyed the excursion. I used the same company to tour the Manuel Antonio National Park and enjoyed my experience with my tourguide, Pablo. These guys really know what they're doing, with hawkeyes that can spot so many amazing animals throughout the... More

We just got back to the states from a wonderful week in Quepos that would not have been the same without Juan and his advise on what to do / not do while visiting the beautiful pacific coast of CR. Our trip was made during the rainy season, and despite this we were able to book 2 affordable activities every... More

My wife and I stayed in the Manuel Antonio region about a month ago, and contacted Aguila Tours for a kayaking trip through the mangroves. I called on the last day of our trip, and wasn't sure if anything would be available on such short notice. To my surprise (and delight!), Juan arranged for an evening tour with Edgar. Juan... More

We used Juan and his tour group to tour the Manual Antonio National Park. Pablo was our guide and he was funny, knowledgeable and good with kids. He found many great animals, birds and lizards. All enjoyed. Very punctual. Great transportation to and from hotel. Highly recommend. Thanks Juan! The Dotsons.

We were at Manuel Antonio last week and had a great morning tour with Edgar. He picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the park entrance. We were a family of four with two young children and he was so patient and kind with us. The hike is not a long distance (maybe 1 mile or so),... More

This hike is more of a nature walk - about 3 miles through the park. Edgar took his time to show us every possible sign of wildlife he could, it was a great tour! He provided us with lot of information and took time to make sure we got great pictures of all the wildlife - which included lizards, baby... More
