We got excellent guidance from Cristhian the owner of Peregrinus Expeditions during our stay at El Copal and Rancho Naturalista. Cristhian speaks fluent English and he is an enthusiastic and very skilled birder, recognizing the birds from sounds we didn’t even hear. He also has a profound knowledge about nature in general. Cristhian always carries a scope so we could also observe birds, which were too far away for binoculars. He customized the guiding to the birds we wanted to see and photograph and we were able to make some wonderful observations (Sunbittern, Snowcap, Great Potoo, White-crowned Manakin, Brown-billed Scythebill) including an evening tour where we found Mottled Owl and Tropical Screech-Owl. If you are looking for special birds, Cristhian knows the places where you have a chance of finding them. Peregrinus Expeditions also took care of booking the accommodations for us. We told them the dates and where we want to stay and we got a complete guiding and lodging package. Everything was organized perfectly. We can highly recommend Cristhian and Peregrinus Expeditions and we would definitely make another tour with them, should we be in Costa Rica again.

Christian Ureña of Peregrinus Expedition was our remarkable birding/naturalist guide on a wide-ranging, 8 day trip across 4 destinations in Costa Rica. First and foremost, Christian is a world-class human being — supremely kind, intelligent, highly educated, extraordinarily competent, and with an encyclopedic knowledge of the birds of Costa Rica. But Chris’s knowledge is next level AND extra-sensory. He hears the birds, can perfectly imitate their call, and then sticks with we low-landers until we do indeed get a great look. His willingness to share his knowledge has added immeasurably to our understanding and appreciation of each of these miracles of nature. We count ourselves lucky indeed to have spent time with such a wonderful person, who never ceased his efforts to meet our every need and request, including an up close sighting of the elusive Quetzale! We were thrilled with the hundreds of bird sightings but they were hugely enhanced by the fun we had with Christian. Many thanks, Mary Anne and Glenn

Christian is a kind and patient guide who is enthusiastic, and really phenomenal at hearing bird calls and quickly eco locating them, getting a scope or helping with your locating the birds. His understanding of bird habits, and knowing local areas for finding specific species is great. It was an absolute pleasure being with him and enjoying the many ecosystems and birds. He is a superb guide and a great human being. One of our members is not really a birder and he was kind and helpful with her needs also,

I travelled with a friend of mine and Christian tailored the whole tour to our interests. We went to Monteverde, La Fortuna and Rio Celeste. In every place he had excellent recommendations and activity ideas. It was my first time in Costa Rica and I was blown away. Christian is a knowledge and friendly guide who makes you feel comfortable while showing you amazing things e.g sloths and toucans!!! Thanks for a brilliant trip!
