Great tour to start our trip!
Jun 2021 • Family
Based on reviews we took the guided tour. William was our guide and showed us everything we wanted to see! We saw at least 10 sloths, Costa Rica's famous frogs,and many birds, including an owl and a toucan. The telescopic lens he brought allowed us to get great pictures. Do not do this tour without a guide. You will miss out on so much!

Night tour is unforgettable
May 2021
We just returned from a 10 day trip to CR and this was the best guided tour we had in the entire country. That just about says it all in a country that is full of beautiful hikes and knowledgeable guides. William is an incredible resource, an encyclopedia of information. Please try the night tour as it is the best of both worlds … when you start, it is still a little light. William managed to find us sloths, howler monkeys, toucans and other birds while it was still light enough to see them. As night fell, we moved on to the ants, frogs, and other night creatures. The guides take pictures with your phones and their sophisticated scopes so you get some really great photos as well. William gave us a brief history of the area and his family’s role in revitalizing the forest there, and even video of the Arenal explosion from his youth. And he even took the trouble of finding someone to watch our car while we were touring. Not to be missed. You will love Costa Rica, and Ticos, even more :-).

Go with a guide and you’ll see plenty of animals
Jun 2021 • Family
We had a great time at Bogarin Trail. We started walking without a guide but we soon realized we weren’t going to see anything on our own so we went back and hired a guide. Definitely worth it! He showed us so many animals! We saw plenty of sloths, frogs, birds, iguanas, snakes, ants... our guide built the trail so he knew it really well.
We have a baby and we took him in a stroller. The path is all flat and in great condition for a stroller or wheel chair.
Our guide gave us a delicious pineapple at the end of the walk.

PAY FOR THE GUIDED TOUR. Kenneth was our tour guide and spotted so many things we would have easily missed. He was so knowledgeable about all the flora and fauna in Costa Rica. This trail and our guide were nothing short of amazing!

From simply buying a ticket to being guided through the trail, everyone was very kind and knowledgeable. If you can, seek out Joann, he was amazing!

Efficient way to see lots of animals in a short period of time in Fortuna with enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide.

Great way to see wildlife especially when f you are time squeezed in Fortuna. Saw monkeys, frogs, snakes, sloths, toucans, and lots of other cool birds on this short nature guided tour. Got great pics too through the guide’s telescopic lens.

Best Costa Rican experience
May 2021 • Couples
Get a guide. You will understand why once you get there. The people without guides are wandering aimlessly, and here and there they will overhear a guide pointing out an animal, and even then, they might not see anything. Eduardo was our guide and we thought he was great. We saw at least 8 sloths, a howler monkey, poisonous frogs, toucans and tons of birds. Our daughter is a bird freak and he made sure we left with photos of many unique birds that we could send to her. In addition to a great tour, he told us some interesting history about the Arenal volcano and how it impacted people in the area.

They other thing we liked about Eduardo is that even though he does this all the time, he still had great enthusiasm and got us excited each time he pointed out an animal. He may have known where each sloth was, but he didn’t let on, and we felt like we were on an expedition to find them. We won’t forget this tour!

Must-Do Adventure!

My husband and I took a guided tour with Jason. He was an incredible guide! We saw multiple sloths, a monkey, all kinds of frogs, a toucan, a snake, and so many different birds. It was an easy walk in the shade that truly brought Costa Rica to life! We loved it!

Best thing ever!
May 2021 • Family
We had the best, best trail experience at Bogarin this morning! We saw four sloths, a multitude of frogs, toucans....so many things I can’t even remember them all! It was perfect. Kenneth was our guide, and we would not have seen anything without him. Our nine-year-old daughter said, “Give him ten out of five stars!” I’m sharing some pictures, but this barely touches what we saw. Don’t miss this tour!

We did the day tour with Jason and it was AMAZING. It was well worth it to do the guided tour. Jason was great! He is very knowledgeable and it was cool to get information on the animals as we saw them. We definitely would not have seen most of the animals if it not for the guide. I HIGHLY recommend on your trip to Costa Rica!!
