Excellent guide. Detailled informations before and during the tour to avoid difficulties. Amazing trails through jungle, beautiful beaches and among animals. Good walking equipment required.

I had a friend highly recommend Nito and Surcos Tours. He said, "If you can manage to get Nito, do it! He's a legend for being the best guide into Corcovado." Nito showed up at the airport in PJ to pick us up and had everything arranged for our trip to Corcovado. He was funny, personably...we trusted in instantly. We... More

If you need a great guide to go to " Corcovado National Park", Surcos Tours is the one.! We had a amazing time with Nito, hiking thru the heart of Corcovado, " La Sirena ". Nito is very knowledgable with all of the animals and birds, that you will see. I highly recommend Surcos Tours.

Osa Peninsula was the highlight of out trip to Costa Rica. We traveled with our family of eleven, ages 10-49. Nito met us at Drake and we did a night hike in the rain (glass frogs, etc.) The next day we did birding/ frogging (Nito knows of a great dart frog preserve in Drake), then went to Corcovado. We spent... More

I only interacted with Nito, the owner, via email, as he set us up with our tour guide Eric. Nito was very helpful via email, and gave us a good estimate of the tour costs and how much a shared shuttle would cost for our transportation from PJ to Carate. Eric was a amazing tour guide! He was kind, enthusiastic,... More

We took the three day tour to Corcovado/Sirena and, although the park and Sirena station are well worth a visit, we recommend using a different tour agency. In ten email exchanges setting up the trip, they neglected to tell us that we could not pay with a credit card. The information about what we needed to bring was also inconsistent.... More

When I was planning for my 2nd trip to Corcovado National Park, I wanted it to be special because I knew that I was going to propose to my girlfriend on the beach next to the Sirena River. I wanted to ask the question specifically at that location because, in my opinion, it is the most magical spot on earth.... More

Our trip to Corcovado was a very special experience, and Nito, our guide, was exceptional. Never I have seen anyone as knowledgable from the smallest insects to the largest mammals. He has an infectious love for his environment and seems to have a sixth sense about where to find wildlife. We saw spider and squirrel monkeys, tapirs, tamanduas, kawatis, many... More

Concerning the hike from La Leona to Sirena back and forth, The enjoyment of your trip is highly dependent on the guide you choose, we highly recommend to be very precise on the guide you want to have. There are many different companies, some have agencies in the main street of Puerto Jimenez (Surcos tours does not). The guides are... More

We were very fortunate to be recommended Nito by another guide in Manuel Antonio (his fame runs that far). We took a small plane that dropped us in Sirena for a day hike in the park. The park is obviously gorgeous and wild and Nito made all the difference. Seeing animals is mostly a matter of luck but a good... More
