Professional Guide for MA Reserve

Hi everyone,

We'll be in M.A. for four days towards the end of next week. When we visit the reserve, I think that we'd prefer to have a professional guide's experience and eyes. 2 questions:

1. Do you suggest hiring a guide (seems to be a lot of mixed opinions on this)?

2. If so, can you book prior or arrange that day?

Thanks!

I agree that you will get so much more out of the park with a guide, especially since they use telescopes and are experts at spotting the animals both big and small. If the suggestion from Roadadvisor doesn't work for you you can PM me, or just ask your hotel or house manager and they will set you up with a certified guide that they use on a regular basis. This way you are guaranteed you will get a skilled guide and the best tour, or they know you will come back later that day if you were not happy to let them know. Remember, the park is closed on Mondays, so plan around that! Enjoy!

I visited MA park last week and really enjoyed it . my guide was Ricardo Rosriguez and he was truly excellent. I am unsure of the guide company he works for but.they wear green shirts.. RIcardo is very knowledgeable about the park and wildlife and I learned a great deal from him and absolutely recommend his service. Mucho gusto, Ricardo !
