Johnny was our guide two mornings in the Monteverde area. He was friendly, extremely knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife, and as good of a guide as we have used. He made sure he was meeting our needs throughout the mornings, offering us choices and monitoring our enjoyment. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who wishes... More

There's a reason Johnny is known for being the most knowledgable bird guide in Monteverde! We are no ornithologists, but did arrived with a list of birds we wanted to see. Among them, the rare Quetzal. Many guides were looking for the Quetzal, but Johnny was the one who spotted it! Very friendly and open.

Johnny arrived on time and wanted to know what birds we wanted to see. It was just us two, Johnny, and his apprentice on the tour. He was very passionate about birds and nature. We unfortunately had a later starting time, but still saw 15+ bird species. At the end of the tour, we sat down for coffee and reviewed... More
