His name is Danilo; he has an amazing amount of knowledge and is truly sharp-eyed, he spoke excellent English and was a delightful companion. Just be sure when you pay the deposit in advance that you use the account number that Kathy gives you and... More

My wife and I did the 3 day tour to Corcovado March 2015 with Nito who owns and operates Surcos tours. We did the hike back in 2012 and enjoyed it so much that we had to come back and do it again. Nito is an incredible guide and person with a great sense of humour (although Cathy didn't seem... More

Our day hike in Corcovado National Park was by far the best part of our trip to Costa Rica! Everything worked out perfectly with Surcos Tours: the contact per email, payment and our guide, Enrique, was simply the best! Even though we hiked during the dry season and there were not as many animals around as usually, he went above... More

Surcos Tours did a great Job - the advice they provided via eMail ahead of the trip, the preperation meeting with the guide and the tour itself where extremely professional and enjoyable. We did the 2-day / 1-night trip. Instead of going from Carate to Sirena and back, we went from Carate to Sirena and from there to Los Patos.... More

Very nice and professional service. The e-mail contact before the hike was very easy. I had asked thousands of questions and always received detailed responses. They explained how we should prepare and what we should take with us. Our guide's name is Enrique and he was great. He knows really knows the forest and speaks English well. We learnt a... More

Estella from this agency answered my numerous questions through the months preceeďing our planned 2-day, 42 kms hike through the park. Our guide Andres really took good care of us, he was knowledgeable about plants as well as animal behaviour and he was always agreable. Sirena Ranger Station has basic commodities, the weather can be grueling hot but overall it... More

Our trip to Corcovado was truly amazing! We saw and learned so much in 3 days and thought it was an ideal amount of time for us. We opted to hike in and fly out with Alfa Romeo. Our group was 4 people ages 24-33, plus my parents who are almost 60. The hike in was tough because of the... More
