If you ask my three teenagers to list their best memorable moments from our tour in Costa Rica, the night tour with Tracy and Gianfranco comes first. It was a wonderful moment of learning in total immersion in the jungle at night. Both Tracy and...More

This tour actually exceeded my already high expectations! Tracie and her buddy were so friendly, funny and informative. We saw so much more than we imagined! This is the best tour I took in Costa Rica during my 2 weeks trip.

Very knowledgeable. They find all sorts of things that we wouldn't have seen and are full of fascinating facts and figures. Not at all strenuous because you have lots of stops. Headlamps supplied but take insect repellant.

Hands down the best nature tour my family has ever joined. Tracie and Gianfranco are incredibly knowledgeable and great story tellers. Their tour of the nightlife in the OSA peninsula goes well beyond naming the many interesting species we observed. It covered a broad range...More

Absolutely loved this tour. There were only 5 of us, including guides, so perfect for not creating disturbances. Tracie really knows her stuff and I saw spiders that I'd only ever seen before on nature documentaries and bugs that I never knew existed. All really...More

Hi, you can just go to the website for the night tour. Trip advisor won't let me post the website, but if you google the night tour, you can find it easily.

Hello, unfortunately we do not offer the Night Tour from Puerto Jiménez. Because of logistics we can only offer the tour to guests lodging in Drake Bay near the town of Agujitas. Thanks again for your inquiry
