We wanted to have a real taste of Costa rica's Nature and wildlife. Surcos Tours made everything possible, our great guide Roger spotted so many species of animals and plants that we would have never notice otherwise. The atmosphere was unique and we have been well assisted before and during our tour. Corcovado NP is a must see for people... More

We booked a 3 day tour with Surcos tours to be in Corcovado-Sirena station. We hiked from Carate. We really had a wonderful stay. We had Nito as a guide. His has a lot of experience in the park and we felt we were in very good hands. Nothing to worry about. He has an amazing gift to spot things,... More

I booked with Surcos because of my communication with Estela when I started emailing companies. She was just so friendly and helpful and replied to my emails rather quickly with detailed information for us. I originally planned to do a 3 day/ 2 night trip from Drake Bay, but our flight from the states was cancelled and we ended up... More

My wife and I went on a 3 day, 2 night expedition in Corcovado, and use Surcos as our guide company. From the planning stages through the drive back to PJ after our trip, everything was extremely well organized by Surcos Tours. Estela was a great help, and very responsive. Roger Munoz - our guide - was intelligent, enthusiastic, friendly,... More

We were fortunate enough to book a tour through Corcovado National Park from Carate to Sirena Ranger Station with Bolivar. He met with us the night before to run through the plans, organized a taxi for us the following morning, and lead us on the adventure of a lifetime. Booking the tour was easy, and the staff was so helpful... More

I went on a 3 day/2 night tour of Corcovado with an amazing Surcos guide, Nito, and another independent traveler. We hiked Carate to Sirena and returned the same way. I was impressed with Nito's knowledge of the local flora and fauna, and his sense of where to find wildlife. We saw peccaries, tapirs, scarlet mccaws, 3 species of monkeys,... More

Thanks to tripadvisor, Surcos Tour was highly recommended to use for those who wanted to experience the beauty that is Corcovado Park. I was going on my own but with a tight budget so I had a lot of reservations about whether it could work. Fortunately, thanks to Estela's super fast and very detailed responses, she was able to organize... More
