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

We planned our trip to Corcovado way in advance and from the beginning we knew that our guide Nito was a great guide. He organized all entrance fee and reservation, and was perfectly on time for our appointment. On the 3 day trip he has been constantly trying to show us from the smallest to the wildest animal but has... More

Our guide, Nito, was great. He was always on the look out for animals while walking and was able to spot the smallest animals. Furthermore his English is good and has good sense of humor.

We made a two day tour in de Corcovado Park with Surcos Tours and had a great experience. Our guide, Nito, showed us many animals and the most amazing locations of the park. Awesome experience and a true adventure.

I initially sent an email to Estela at Surcos Tours inquiring about a guide, and she is AMAZING! She helped us find a guide, Felipe Arias, who guided us through Corcovado 20 years ago, and arranged for us to meet with Felipe again for another spectacular adventure through Corcovado. Estela also helped us arrange a zip line tour outside of... More

We recently went on the 3-day tour into Corcovado, with Keller as our guide. The experience was the highlight of our vacation, and something we will always remember. We were really lucky to have good weather the whole time. We saw so many animals and plants on our trip. Keller was an excellent guide, pointing things out to us, showing... More

We booked a three-day tour in Corcovado, a return trip from Carate. They were really helpful from the beginning, quick to reply and always ready to give us the information we needed. Our guide was brilliant, and I highly recommend him. The name is Keller. Just on the first day, during a 8 hour hike through the jungle, beaches and... More
