As we were staying at Valle Escondido, it was very convenient to do this tour soon after we arrived on our first night in Monteverde. The tour guide Miguel had very good English and also a good sense of humor. The highlights of the two-hour tour included a tarantula, a viper, and a kinkajou. We were hoping to see a sloth, but apparently they are very difficult to find.

Absolutely amazing experience. Arrive for sunset before the tour (if it isn’t too cloudy) to see the most beautiful view of the rolling hills and sea with a bright orange sky. The Night Tour itself was 2 hours long through the trails of Valle Escondido - nothing too difficult or strenuous and good torches were provided. Our guide was super informative and friendly and spoke perfect English. We saw so many animals including a Kinkajou, an Olingo, two porcupines up a Ficus tree, a Possum, a few sleeping birds, many caterpillars, frogs and leaf & stick insects. The owner was super nice and happy to chat also - could not recommend this tour any more !!

We spent roughly two hours on the Hidden Valley Night Tour. The dusk and early night in Santa Elena are absolutely hypnotic. Hector was amazing. His personality and excitement were contagious. We have no idea how he was able to spot so many sleeping birds, tropical insects and amazing mammals in the trees. Highly recommend this tour, especially with Hector. Muchos gracias!

What started with popcorn soon became better than a movie. We were lucky to have a very clear and dry evening in october to go on this night expedition with Hector, our friendly and very smart guide. We saw more than we were expecting to see and were very very happy to see the rare kingcajou. We also saw a small scorpion, some toucanets, two very hairy spiders, a leaf mimicing insect and some of the very colourful motmot birds. Alltogether a very entertaining evening we will not easily forget. The owners of the monteverde inn guarantee top quality guides and close the trails for guests in the evening so the night tours can be of the highest possible quality, wich is great!

Fantastic night walk guided by Hector. Group of 7 people in total. Hector was enthusiastic and informative. We saw several sleeping birds, bats, a tarantula, a toad, scorpions, huge stick insects and a young boa. Hector gave us a great explanation about all the wildlife. Great value for money and enjoyed by all the family.
