His passion to share and preserve this amazing place is contagious. He has a knack for finding animals hidden from untrained eyes, and always finds something interesting to... More

This has been the highlight of our trip so far. Omar is so knowledgeable and expressive he makes the jungle come alive. Such a great ambassador and promoter of conservation. He puts real life nature into real world situations. We agree that no one does it better then Mother Nature and no one explains it better then Omar. He has... More

This was one of the highlights of my trip to Manzanillo. Omar arrived to meet us on time and was very personable and knowledgeable. He had great stories about the things we encountered on our walk and we especially enjoyed his jokes. I was amazed by his ability to find creatures of all sizes hiding in the trees and on... More

We did the 4 hour jungle tour with Omar and it was the highlight of the trip. He is a true naturalist and is extremely knowledgeable with regards to plant and animal life. We not only enjoyed learning about the area, plants, and animals but enjoyed his company and spirit more than anything.

I have been on two jungle tours with Bucus Tours--one with a group of 6, and one with just my son and I. Both were excellent, and Omar does a great job of tailoring the tour to your interests, from animals to the plants and trees (and palms!). He seems to know everything about the natural environment and also connects... More

The highlight of or visit to Manzanillo!! Our accommodation coordinator, Stephanie, set us up on a "jungle" tour with Omar. Upon meeting him, he welcomed us with his energetic personality and immediately engaged us, in our tour by questioning our knowledge of the area and Costa Rica, in general. Omar loves to tell jokes and learn new ones, so come... More

This was the first of several visits to the different national refugees in Costa Rica, and I had alot of use of what Omar thought me in... More

Omar's hike through the jungle was everything we could have asked for and more! Omar is very knowledgable and engaging, and put me at ease in the jungle environment. I was initially afraid of going on this hike because of my fear of snakes, but Omar definitely knows what he is doing and "had our backs" the whole time. Our... More
