We saw some really amazingly special spiders like the trapdoor spider, and the net-casting spider. Tracie is very good at explaining the animals with interesting anecdotes and they have very cool device to “hear” ultrasound from bats. Highly recommended!

You will see many, many spiders! The bug lady and her husband love what they do. They are so passionate about their creepy crawlers that they suck you into their excitement. A must at Drake Bay!

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
