We really enjoyed our hike through Manuel Antonio Park with Mario. Mario is vey knowledgable about the park, the birds and the animals. I was amazed at all the things he could spot to show us in the lush green vegetation. He used a spotting scope so we saw things magnified and were able to take pictures. In addition, Mario... More

We did the half day tour to Manuel Antonio Park with Jade Tours and Mario. It was a great hike. Saw lots of wildlife which Mario spotted for us. We learned so much and would not have had near the spottings on our own. I was very pleased with our tour and all that we saw.

Mario himself is a passionate and deeply knowledgeable naturalist who generates excitement and interest through his presentations. We enjoyed a Rainmaker Canopy tour and night Mangrove tour with him personally. He is attentive to your preferences as well as an expert guide with amazing eyesight:) William guided us thru Manuel Antonio Park, and is an elder statesman and equally knowledgeable... More

This is a fantastic tour to do to learn about the forest and the critters that live there. We had 2 groups and spent time hearing and seeing about lizards, sloths, birds and anything we encountered along the path. The best lesson learned from the day is that we really shouldn't feed the wild animals and let nature be.

We did a Night Mangrove tour with Mario. He came on the dot at the arranged time to our vacation rental which was pretty deep in, close to the jungle. Amazed he managed to find it. He's a really nice, friendly guy with a lot of passion for his country and its wildlife. Dinner was included at a restaurant quite... More

The forest is lush and the trails are not difficult. The hanging bridges are an added feature but the real treat here is to... More

We saw several birds, a viper and other creatures along the way. We were so happy that we had Mario as our guide as we never... More

Mario, our tour guide, was amazing. Everyone talks about how you can go to Manuel Antonio but won't see anything if you don't hire a guide. They are right! And Mario was absolutely a great choice to hire. We booked him in advance - he was very communicative ahead of time and then was so knowledgable on the tour. Most... More

Thanks to Mario for guiding myself and my girlfriend through MA national park. He has a wealth of knowledge not only on the wildlife but the history of the park and area in general. Very interesting and highly recommended if you are visiting the area.
