Having been in Costa Rica for almost a week and a half and we were skeptical about whether or not we wanted to do more nature tours. We ended up booking the night Rainmaker and the night mangrove tour and boy are we glad we did! The price for the tours included pick-up and drop-off at where you are staying... More

We hired Jade Tours for a walk throughManuel Antonio. Mario was informative and helpful. He was especially kind to our two-year-old daughter. He is very knowledgable. The hike was perfect length for our kids and 70 year old grandpa. We all enjoyed the swim at the beach. There are clean changing rooms and showers. One small detail. The hotel had... More

We had a great time visiting the park and Mario from Costa Rica Jade tours was the best. Mario has a wealth of knowledge that added a lot of educational information about what we're seeing. Saw a bunch of monkeys, sloths, stick bird, insects, frog and many other animals. Best time to visit is in the early morning, with Monday... More

Mario, is a hidden gem in Costa Rica. He is extremely knowledgeable and so passionate about what he does. We did a mangrove tour with our two kids (12 and 8) and loved it. If we had gone on our own or with a different guide, it would have been like a drive through. In fact we saw some other... More

We were fortunate enough to have Mario Brenes as our guide through Manuel Antonio National Park! He has exceptional knowledge of all the inhabitants at the Park and eagerly shared with us every moment of the tour. His enthusiasm for sharing the rainforest and all its wonders was the highlight of our visit to the Manuel Antonio area. We highly... More

Marvin was very professional, spoke english well, and was interesting to listen to. A must if you're in the park. Leave as early as you can... More

Mario was amazing!! Can't imagine trekking through the Rainmaker Park without him. We have enjoyed the knowledge and experience of other tour guides on different adventures before, but Mario takes the cake! We were all so impressed with his knowledge, enthusiasm, and eagle eyes! He made our time at the Rainmaker Park special, unique, and beautiful! We would not have... More

Mario's depth of knowledge is impressive and his enthusiasm contagious. We toured Manuel Antonio Park with him and then decided to do a night tour of the Mangrove a few days later. We will never forget the beautiful evening out on the water with all the birds. Following the river through the Mangrove swamp was awe inspiring and we saw... More

We booked 2 tours with Mario, the Manuel Antonio tour and the Damas Mangrove boat tour. William, Mario's partner, gave us the Manuel Antonio tour. He was extremely knowledgeable about the insects, animals, and plants of the rainforest park. He was able to spot creatures like sloths, monkeys, snakes, frogs, and insects from far away with his eyes and show... More

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
