Overview

I offer high quality tours of discovery, expertly designed to fulfill the adventurous spirit in you. Reef and rainforest explorations are edifying and exhilarating - and often hands-on! Corcovado National Park is a breathtaking site no matter how many times you tour its vast unspoiled beauty. I am located in Drake Bay, near to Corcovado, right in the heart of one of Costa Rica's most untouched ecological wonders. The Osa Peninsula still holds many surprises for those seeking to see nature, all Corcovado area can only be described as "the most biologically intense place on Earth" (National Geographic).

We had an amazing experience with Carlos on the Night Swim Plankton Tour for two reasons. First, the tour itself was magical- you enter the water from a calm beach about 5 minutes from the center of town and you’ll feel like a wizard in...More

We saw a great variety of fish. They took us to two different spots to snorkel. They have the perfect balance of keeping you safe without making it feel restricted. My wife and I highly recommend these guys.

We did Snorkeling at Cano Islands, The bioluminencent Plankton tour, Corcovado National Park, and the night walk with Pachecos and also stayed in their cabins perfectly located a 5 minute walk from the beach and store. Would highly recommend them!

We did the floating tour with Pacheco tours. It was fun, but not worth the $65 p.p. Carlos was our guide, who seemed more intent on finishing the tour than ensuring we enjoyed ourselves. In our case, we drove 45 mins to a small trail...More

We had a great time! The hike in is really more of a walk until the very end. When you get closer to the waterfall, the path gets quite steep with lots of twists and turns. It's not dangerous and there are lots of roots...More

Good tour business and reliable. Carlos is an awesome guide and is a great guy. He's good with kids and made it fun and educational. Wouldn't know a better place to go to book your tours.
