Very knowledgeable and fun. Great for families and adults. These folks are really good with people, and really know how to get kids excited about nature. I watched some of the other night tours in the area and this is likely the best one.

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
