We contacted Carlos last summer to help us set up our private birding tour of Costa Rica. We left all the details to him and he came up with a great itinerary which in turn gave us an unbelievable experience. He picked us up at the airport in San Jose and took us for a 9 day tour of many of the birding hotspots in Costa Rica including La Selva Birding Station, San Gerardo de Dota, Arenal, Monte Verde, Savegre and so many other lesser known areas with excellent birding. He arranged all our accommodations, meals and transportation. We loved every minute including the day of hurricane Otto which we spent the afternoon at the Tabacon Hotsprings. Carlos was even able to find birds by their hearing their calls as he drove. He was one of the most knowledgeable and best bird guides we have ever met. He was also very patient. We learned so much about his beautiful country from him. He spotted 3 kinds of monkeys, sloths, snakes, frogs and so much more. We saw over 300 species of birds many of which he was able to ID by their call. He would then make sure we got a good look at the bird before adding it to our list. One of our highlights included the Resplendant Quetzal! We loved every moment of this trip and hope to be able to do another tour with Carlos again one day soon. He can be reached by phone (506) 89279630 Gracias Carlos!

I am so glad to have visited Costa Rica. We hired Carlos Jimenez as our private birding guide. We didn't have a moment of disappointment in the entire 12 days. I recommend Costa Rica to everyone. From the ocean and bay to the beautiful mountains and waterfalls. All that and a respect for the environment. Incredible. (We went in May 2015, but it's not available in the drop down.)

We had Carlos as a tour guide for three weeks as part of a a group trip through Costa Rica. Besides being a great person, he's passionate about birds but can tell you a lot about other animals too. He is really good at spotting anything that moves and he has lots of background info. And he speaks fluent English. We really enjoyed the way he showed us all the nature that his country has to offer.

Wow...we had an amazing birding experience with Oli. We met at 5:15am, and birded the Santa Rosa Park and Rincon de Veijo area, from 6am to 6pm. Even as the sun had already gone down Oli was still scanning the grasses for a Dicksissel for us. His enthusiasm is so amazing. His knowledge of the bird calls and knowing where to find them was unbeleivable. We wanted to see a Common Paraque (hard for us to find) and he found it in a very short time. Oli has a wonderful personality, knows everything about the nature and the countryside, the history and of course the birds, and speaks excellent English. We saw 89 different species that day. I recommend Oli as the guide that will give you the best birding experience ever. The BEST.
