Two couples -- all avid birders -- spent 11 days with Nito at the end of January and beginning of February 2015. We met Nito six years ago and arranged this trip with him as our guide. Nito is the best birding guide we've ever had. We saw 311 species of birds! He is also a wonderful person and made... More

We have been in The Corcovado National Reserve for three days between January 9th and January 11th 2015. We succeed to organize this excursion at last minute before we travelled to Costa Rica and we would love to say a really BIG THANKS to "Estella" who made this happened and manage everything from the beginning until the end even with...

We had an amazing time on our Surcos Tours guided trip in Corcovado with Keller. He was knowledgable, personable, and clearly passionate about his job. He showed us plenty of wildlife and his spotting scope was very handy. We were well prepared ahead of time with what to expect as well. Great trip and great guide! My only suggestion is... More

My partner and I had the most magical time in Corcovado a couple of weeks ago. We spent quite a while comparing different agencies and settled on Surcos Tours as they seemed high quality and the best value for money (we were on a budget). We could not have had a better time. Our guide was amazing (Keller). He was... More

Our trip organized through Surcos Tours went smoothly and our guide, Vincent Campos, had everything we needed for our night at Sirena Station and did a very good job briefing us on what we needed to know. We met Vincent the night before our... More

Did the standard 3 day/2 night trip to Sirena via Carate with our guide Keller and had a fantastic experience. He kept the pace manageable for us (the heat really does slow you down), pointed out more wildlife than we'd ever have seen on our own (poison dart frogs!) and even cooked for us on the first night when a...

Thank you Nito - we had a wonderful time at Corcovado. it was the reason we had travelled from the UK and so just like a bride on her wedding day we were very excited and had high expectations. Nito was passionate about wildlife and obviously cared about us having the best trip possible. At the end of the day... More
