Without a doubt, Johnny and another of his partners (Jesus) were the best tour guides I have ever had the pleasure of meeting! Extremely knowledgable and will go out of their way to meet the needs or desires of the tour group. After our first tour, we actually booked them for the night tour and following day tour! We highly... More

We booked a morning bird-watching tour at the tourism office in Monte Verde. Johnny picked us up at our hotel. We told him what we were interested in seeing and he determined where we would go to best find quetzals and toucans. He was very knowledgeable about the plants and animals of Costa Rica and his love for nature was... More

On one night tour he found several Beatles, two honey bears, crickets, a tarantula, a sloth, and a viper eating a snake while hanging from a tree. Other tours were actually following him around. Great attitude. He even took us to an awesome Ferris wheel after the tour was done!

Johnny was an awesome guide. He really knows plants and wildlife, and I ended up having a private tour with him in the Monteverde Reserve one day and enjoyed his tour and sense of humor so much, that I did a night tour with him at the nearby Monteverde Wildlife Park. We saw so much wildlife and animals I didn't... More

Johnny Villegas (pronounced vee-JAY-gus in Costa Rica) gave us just exactly the tour we explained to him that we wanted. At 70, we're not able to do certain more strenuous hikes, and he was very accommodating to our limitations but able to direct us through part of the Monteverde cloud forest, finding numerous wonderful birds, culminating with a sighting of...

Johnny was very accommodating with us, and super friendly. He clearly loves and knows a lot about nature, and his enthusiasm adds to the experience. We did a night tour with him and he was on time, friendly and we had a great time. Thanks Johnny!

We toured the cloud forest in March during a 10-day vacation in Costa Rica and Johnny was the best of our 3 guides. He is so knowledgeable and passionate about the cloud forest and worked extremely hard to show us birds, monkeys and finally the Quetzal! It was a fabulous tour and I highly recommend his services. When my mother-in-law... More

We were assigned Johnny as a tour guide on our first visit to Monteverde reserve. We enjoyed it so much that we hired him for two additional tours, of Curi Cancha and Selvatura. He took it as his personal challenge to find new birds that we had not seen previously, and he succeeded. We found some fantastic birds, including the... More
