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

Johnny's tour was certainly the highlight of our trip to Monteverde! His knowledge, passion and sense of humour made a tremendous difference. Not only did Johnny fulfil our endless requests to see everything from sloths, quetzals to orchids that morning, he made sure we had everything lined up for the rest of our time in Costa Rica. We were so... More

Johnny is really passionate about Monteverde.. he showed us many birds and explained everything... and answered all of my questions.. and I had a lot. He was so excited to see rare orchids or a very rare hummingbird. Really great fun to have a tour with him. And not to mention his idea to have an association of the guides... More

We found Johnny through the Visitor Center in Sta. Elena. We will definitely recommend him! We went on a mid morning walk and one at dawn. We were in search of the Quetzal. We did not see any on the first day, too late in the am...but we saw so many other great things...a hummingbird garden with scores of different... More
