“unique kayak tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Mauricio is a local guide, born and raised in the Tortuguero region. He offers great kayak and walking tours, the best part is that his tour groups are never bigger than 3-4 people. He loves his work and has a real passion for the wildlife of Tortuguero. Highly recommend tour! His lovely Spanish girlfriend will help you with any other thing you might need (shuttles transfers and such) and on top of that she makes great coffee!

“best boat tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

A highly recommended tour led by a knowledgeable, enthusiastic guy named mauricio. He knew so many things we wouldve missed without a guide- a walking palm tree, poison dart frogs...an easy going and reasonable person. also makes jewelry out of nuts and shells he finds in the forest.

“Great, personable and knowledgable Guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I bumped into Mauricio by accident, at which point he told me that he was a guide and to come back if I wanted to check out Tortuguero with him.

His price was amazingly reasonable and the guy is a sweetheart. He was born and raised in Tortuguero, but traveled around his country, working as a guide throughout Costa Rica. Consequently, he learned how to communicate with eloquence about the wonders and history of Tortuguero, as well as the rest of Costa Rica.

I had a great connection with the dude, and would send anyone I know going to Tortuguero to his tours.

“Good bloke”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

When we first met Mauricio we took a liking to him! He's a top bloke, speaks great english and he seemed to have a genuine love for nature. We had a great day with him, he knows a load about the wildlife in Tortuguero since he grew up in the rainforest. He helped us find a great, cheap place to stay and also organized a shuttle for us to leave.

“Mauricio is the guy to meet.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Rainforest Life Tours by Mauricio Rodriguez was a good choice for us. We are not big group people and really enjoyed the personal one on one with Mauricio. He is very knowledgable on the wildlife and plants of the area. He takes you in a canoe type of boat and he paddles you along the edge of the forest. The cost was $40 for two people(does not include pack entrance fee), it was a two part tour, 3 hr.Canoe in the morning then walking tour in the afternoon. We were unable to do the walking tour, due to my husband had an injury to his leg, so I can not tell you about that.
Mauricio speaks very good english and is trying to build his business. He is a hard worker and earned every bit of what we paid him.
He his located just behind the market.
