We saw a Puma, Oscelot (both very rare!) Tapir, Crocodiles, 3 kind of monkeys, a lot of birds, Tukan, and much more. So great, one of the most beautiful spots... More

Me and my girlfriend did the 3 days corcovado hike guided by Nito and shared with 2 other people and it was one of the best experiences of our lives! Nito is an incredible guide and birdwatcher. Since he heared we are also birdwatchers he gave an extra attention to birds and we were amazed by his ability to recognize... More

Although the day wasn't especially successful regarding wildlife sightseeing, the walk was nice and Nito was a wonderful guide, we learnt a lot from him!

Initially I was disappointed to hear that a guide is now required to visit Corcovado. July 2016 was my fourth visit to Corcovado and each previous trip I had done on my own without issue. Choosing a guide company on the internet can be challenging, as they often don't live up to their promises, so my guard was up. Surcos... More

Didn’t book with Surco (I went with Osa wild) – they didn’t really seem interested in a solo traveller and never got back to me. However I am commenting as I basically shared a trek back from Sirena to Carate on and off with Nito and his two parties through the day. Nito was extraordinarily enthusiastic guide, and VERY knowledgeable... More

From the start I was very happy with the service that Surcos gave me. Always responsive, answring friendly to the many questions I had. Keeping me up-to-date on the booking status in Sirena. As a guide we had Kevin. He was great for the three marvellous days we had. What he lacked in experience (only doing this for only 3... More

We just did a two day hike into and out of Corcovado with Nito, and it was incredible. I did this hike 9 years ago before guides were required, and it was much better with Nito! He showed us so much that we would have never seen without a guide, and in addition to knowing where all the animals are,... More

My husband and I recently did the 3 day Corcovado trek with Carlos and it was fantastic. We saw so much wildlife including but not limited to a tapir, all 4 species of monkeys (including several spider monkey babies!), 2 poison dart frogs, caiman, an anteater, a tayra, agoutis, sloths, countless coati, and so many species of birds including dozens...

I want to write 2 reviews for Surcos tours as we had 2 adventures with them: The dolphin and bioluminescence tour - we absolutely loved this boat trip, although we didn't see any dolphins the bioluminescence was absolutely amazing! We were the only boat out and we got to swim in the sea and glow!! I cannot compare to other... More
