We loved this low key, restful bird watching opportunity. We spent a lot of time observing birds feeding and then went further afield. Giovanni is enthusiastic and knowledgeable and it was one of our best mornings in Costa Rica. Breakfast at a local soda was...More

Genovanni Bogarin is more then a well informed guide. He is able to uniquely connect with nature, and then invites us to share in the experience. He is so knowledgeable that I'm sure he should write a book. And his passion is evident for this...More

There is a group of us going to Costa Rica April 2017. We will fly into San Jose, and plan to arrive around the 15th or 16th. On the 19th, we need to be in Puntarenas before the tide goes out to board a boat. Our ages are from mid 50s to upper 60's. So

What is the question? I spent some time here Pennie, and would be happy to help, just let me know what it is you want to know. The message cut off so it is unclear.

What tour do you recommend? We have 3 kids ages 6, 10 and 12. They're all good walkers but really would like to see some wildlife and are quite excited about the volcano as well. We only have 2 full days (3 nights) in Arenal so don't want to do 2 full day tours as the kids will want to spend some time swimming at the hotel, exploring on their own, etc. Thanks for any suggestions!
