Greivin was an excellent guide. He is very kind and is definitely passionate about birds and wild life. We walked around Uvita and near the Ballena Marino Park and saw over 30 species. Greivin really does a good job tailoring the experience to the desires and needs of the people he is taking out. We 100% recommend this tour.

We have a condo in Manuel Antonio and we have spent a lot of time with with nature guides in Costa Rica and in other countries. Isaac is at the top of our list. He is very skilled at finding birds, including species that are quite rare. He is detailed oriented and, soon after our trip with him, he sent us a comprehensive list of all the bird taxa that we encountered. He is also very personable and speaks excellent English. He picked us up at our hotel (Oxygen) at 6 am and drove us to a number of excellent birding sights. Two of the highlights of our time with him were spotting the laughing falcon and the reddish egret (photos attached). We would not hesitate to recommend him and, in fact, we are planning on doing another trip with him this spring.

We were spending 6 weeks in the Uvita area. We booked this 3-4 hour tour as our second birding outing, and wow, what a wonderful tour, all within the town of Uvita, different locations, and close to 60 species, Greivin was the best experience of our Costa Rican trip. This tour will give you a great intro to the many birds that inhabit the Pacific lowlands, including water birds. Greivin is very knowledgeable, passionate, patient and flexible. If there is something specific you want to see, he will do his best to meet your expectations. We spent many wonderful hours , as Greivin also does other tours, including to Corcovado Park, learning and experiencing the true Costa Rica. Thank you Greivin, you are the best part of our Uvita memories. Pura Vida.

Isaac is one of the most amazing guides/professionals I have ever worked with. His English is perfect and he is excellent with communicating and planning. Isaac literally has an eagle eye for spotting animals/birds in the rain forest. He is calm, attentive, and knowledgeable. I have held retreats with him for the past 4 years and every year gets better. Isaac has become like family and we literally return every year to spend the week with him. Any trip you plan with Isaac will be exceptional.

Greivin is fantastic! Myself and two other avid nature enthusiasts joined Greivin for a morning tour and had an incredible time. We saw 40+ species in three hours. We never would have seen so many birds on our own. If you're in the area, you have to book a tour!

I could not be more pleased with the birdwatching experience provided by Isaac. I'd never birdwatched before but figured Costa Rica would be a good place to start. One month (and four excursions) later, I am a bird watching fanatic. Isaac knows all the great spots to go, and has an unbelievable ability to spot birds of all types. He is extremely knowledgeable, and I learned so much from him that truly enriched the rest of my trip in CR :) Tours are available in English and Spanish, and he can accommodate visitors in areas outside Uvita as well. I really can't recommend him more highly, and am so grateful I got the chance to meet him!

Isaac is a highly experienced and professional nature guide. He took us to some of the best sites around the Marino Ballena National Park, showing us an incredible diversity of birds. These included the laughing falcon and the reddish egret (photos attached). His English is excellent and he is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him and we intend to hire him again this spring.

Loved Isaac's bird watching experience. Picked me up at 5:40am from my hostel, and drove me and another bird watcher to all of his favorite (secret) spots. Found me my toucan, scarlet macaws, and many other native birds to Uvita, Costa Rica. Speaks English well. Costs less than other tours. Highly recommended, thank you, Isaac.

Went birding with Greivin in the town of Uvita. His experience is second to none. The walk was easy and we saw 60 plus species just walking some of the back streets of Uvita. From Uvita we ventured to the Whales Tail where we saw another great array of birds. Greivin is a gifted birding guide and has that natural ability to recognize what bird we are hearing and then being able to set up his scope and pick the bird out of seemly nowhere. I'm a new birder and it was a real eye opening experience to be able to see so many beautiful birds and learn about their habitats etc. Costa Rica is a birders paradise and it is even more so with a guide like Greivin.
