Angelo provided transport for us from Nayara Springs to the Los Suenos marina.
He was great, very professional and made our trip very enjoyable pointing our many interesting things along the way. We stopped at the crocodile bridge along the way which was quite a treat.
Our SUV was new, immaculate and very comfortable to travel in.

Angelo was a new a friend by the end of the trip!

We will certainly use him again next trip for transportation and tours.

This is my second time using Costa Rica Nature Guides. For this trip, they planned a three day trip for me and took care of everything. It made traveling so easy and stress-free! Highly recommend using for private transfer around the country plus arranging tours.

Angelo is a very knowledge guide who has expanded his business to include vacation packages and private transportation. This is the best way to experience Costa Rica. On your own you have will miss so much.

We engaged Angelo for a private tour to the real Cano Negro. Most tours go to Los Chiles near the Nicaraguan border and you board a shared tour boat that takes you along the busy Rio Frio river. You will see some wildlife this way. Angelo took us over a bumpy dirt road into the Cano Negro reserve where we boarded a small boat in the tiny village of Cano Negro along with Angelo and the boat captain/naturalist Ernesto. We saw a variety of birds (24 species), mammals and reptiles and saw only a few tourists staying at a nearby lodge. A beautiful quiet day in nature.

We did tours on two days with him.The first day we did a combo tour of the volcano hike, hanging bridges and the la fortuna falls. Angelo is an expert at spotting wild life. He sees things that regular folks cannot. He also owns an awesome scope which makes it easy to see the animals/birds/reptiles up close. Unless you own super expensive binoculars you will not have that experience. He was able to capture pictures and videos on our smart phones using the scope. He also knows a lot about the wildlife and flora. We requested he stop for coconut water which he did.
I am not in great shape physically and so took lots of breaks and he did not complain once. He stopped when I did and just kept encouraging me to go on. The first few hanging bridges brought on a full onslaught of vertigo but he patiently got me across. Towards the end I was over my fear of heights and ready for next day's zip lining! We had initially planned only one day of activities with him but we were so impressed that we called him back and reserved a tour to Ecocentro Danaus. We saw caimans, sloths, beautiful butterflies, birds and lizards. We again got excellent photos and even sloth videos with the help of his scope. He also provided us with authentic vegetarian costa rican lunch and beer on day one preceded by a tasty pineapple which he expertly cut in front of us. On the second day he treated us to a super sweet water melon. He even stopped at the local grocery store so we could pick up some supplies.

We highly recommend him and his company. We will certainly reach out to him the next time we are in Costa Rica.

Despite the other reviews, we cannot recommend Angelo. It was finally beautiful weather when we got near the Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges and our B&B hosts had recommended him, so we gave Angelo a call. Although he first said he was busy, he did meet us there.

He started off playing a money game and even bragged about giving us a better deal than he quoted our hosts. He only charged $70 each (rather than the $80/per person he quoted them), but it wasn't worth 1/4 of that. We did see couple of animals and he told us a little bit about a few of the plants, but he rushed us through so we didn't even get to enjoy the peace and beauty of the forest. The website says a 3 hour tour and he spent around 2 hours and 15 minutes with us.

He also apologized saying that he didn’t have time to find out where the animals and birds were hanging out. When I questioned him, he said it was a bad time of day to see anything. If there are no animals to be found, the forest is full of plants, trees, snakes, insects, etc, and he could have taken time to talk about those and the history of the area. Nature guides should always have a plan “B”. Or, if it’s really a bad time of day to be there, why not be gracious enough to say so before accepting our booking? He also spent time on his phone and texting.

We had many wonderful private guides during our 3 weeks in Costa Rica and many others in other places we have visited. Angelo did not measure up.

Hola. Dear customer. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations First of all when you contact me i was busy in a birdwatching tour from 6AM to 10 AM so we started at 11 AM. Since you booked by phone i realized i gave you a higher rate i just want to set it up to the regular rate after the "money game" you mentioned. Anytime is a good time for the hanging bridges tours i'm always eager to shared our knowledge.I never promisewild life due to is a big forest and the animal are always moving perhaps Is hard to see animals when we have kids complainting all the time or crying. I mentioned right at the biggining what to do and what we don´t have to do. I hope that you will consider touring with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with an amazing travel experience.

We were with Angelo for the better part of two days. We had signed up for the Hanging Bridges tour, Volcano tour and hot springs - but what we got was so much more! Angelo's knowledge is incredible and if you ask about one of the few things he does not know - he will find it out for you! We had an awesome time and left the Arenal area feeling like we got so much more than just a tour - we got a sense of the local area and Costa Rica. Angelo was very good at figuring out what we wanted to do on each adventure and in giving us enough time to enjoy each location - there was no hurrying along or having to keep to a strict schedule - it was wonderful!

I am really glad we went to visit Arenal. Even though the volcano is not active, the area is lovely. We took a local guide called Angelo for a hiking tour - I would really recommend him for his knowledge, sincerity and sense of humour (naturalistguidecr.wix.com). We also visited the hot springs and had a soak at the end of the day. This was most definitely the perfect end to a day which involved lots of walking. I would say spending about two days (one night) in the area is more than enough.

My family (2 adult children, husband and I) had the pleasure of having Angelo take us to the Hanging Bridges. I never expected to see the wildlife along the way. His SUV is new and immaculate. Angelo is full of information about the area. He stopped on the road because he spotted a Howller Monkey in a tree. He set up a fabulous high power scope for us to see the monkey. It was amazing that he was able to spot it. When we arrived at the Bridges he immediately found a sloth- I couldn't see it until he set up the scope. Very exciting to see animals I've never seen before and didn't expect to see. But it gets better. We started to walk through the rainforest and saw a beautiful snake wrapped around a tree, then walked across a bridge ( that was nice but truly the least exciting even though that was what we were there for). Then Angelo spotted a whole group of spider monkeys swinging from the trees and eating. There were so many of them and it was as if they were putting on a show for us. We had never seen anything like it. Hanging from there arms, tails, jumping from tree to tree, throwing fruit- it was awesome!! Angelo told us about them and the way they typically behave. His knowledge about everything was exceptional. I wish we had met him before our last day. I would have liked for him to take us on another hike or suggest another tour. He's extremely sweet and capable.

Our tour with Angelo started with the Arenal Volcano Hike and then took a short drive to the Hanging Bridges. Angelo was not only knowledgeable but he was funny too! Very nice van he picked us up in and took us on both tours. He took us through the hanging bridges and showed us so many exciting animals and reptiles we would not have seen if we hadn't had them with us. Other people were stopping us asking to join our tour!! After an exciting morning, he treated us to fresh pineapple! He cut it up right in front of us, can't get much fresher than that! He was just amazing and helped make our vacation so special! Would definitely recommend these tours but most importantly Angelo! Cannot wait to go back and see him next time we are in Costa Rica!

This was a wonderful experience walking through easy-to-manage trails gradually working your way up to the top of the canopy. Along the way our excellent guide pointed out monkeys, sloths, iguanas, snakes, morphous butterflies, birds, frogs, and so much more. Along the way we crossed 16 bridges and 6 of them were the hanging bridges. Although you are very high up I never felt insecure even though I am afraid of heights. You also get a great view of the Arenal Volcano. I highly recommend this tour.
