Private Night Tour - Avoid the crowds!

If you are looking for a fun activity for kids and adults alike, you will definitely enjoy a night tour. Many mammals, birds and insects behave differently at night, and there are always wonderful surprises in store, like sleeping birds, nocturnal mammals, and lots of interesting bugs. Your guide will lead you on a safe walk through well-kept trails. Night tours are so popular that a private tour is really the only way to go to avoid the crowds and have your guide's full attention. We look forward to hosting you!

Combo Day & Night tour (small group)

This combo is popular for a few reasons. First, the afternoon walk at the beautiful Monteverde trails takes place without the morning crowds, providing a very pleasant experience. And due to our temperate weather, an afternoon tour is just as great as a morning tour! Following the afternoon walk, you'll have the opportunity to stop for a snack break at an authentic "tico" eatery. Finish out the evening with a night walk, and voila - a full Monteverde experience!

What a special morning exploring Monteverde cloud forest with Marcos! His enthusiasm for nature and sharing his knowledge is infectious, and his expertise led us to find a beautiful quetzal swaying on a branch in the fog. He is completely bilingual and transitioned between Spanish and English with no problems. He was also wonderful with the small child in our group, taking time to point out things that would interest and engage a four-year-old. Our tour felt like taking a walk with an old friend -- Marcos was so personable and engaging that the time just flew by. I unreservedly recommend booking a tour with Marcos to explore this special place.

We had a fabulous time touring the Monteverde Cloud Reserve with Marcos! He is a kind and knowledgeable guide, and did a great job of interacting with my 4 year old. A local of the area, he definitely knows his stuff and helped give us a much better experience than we could have ever had on our own. Communication and setting up the tour was also a breeze. I highly recommend using this company!

Our party of six chose Pasion CR because of the reviews, and we were extremely pleased that our choice paid off! Marcos was amazing... knowledgeable, considerate, enthusiastic, passionate and very easy to understand. He did not hurry us along, and took the time to stop for coffee on our way back to town. We highly recommend this company!

This was one of the best guided tours we went on in Costa Rica. Marcos is a very gifted guide. Not only does he seem to have a magical ability to spot the animals that appear invisible to us but he also has an in-depth knowledge of the local flora and fauna that he enthusiastically shares. For the day tour we went to Curi Cancha, where we saw many interesting birds (among which the quetzal) as well as local mammals. Afterwards, Marcos took us to a local soda (Sabortico) where he introduced us to delicious local dishes. Then we finished the day off with an enchanting evening tour. The booking process with Pasión was very smooth and professional.

We have done two hikes with Marcos during our time in Costa Rica and both tours were wonderful experiences. The second one, a day long tour to the San Gerardo Biological station was our absolute highlight during all our stay in Costa Rica. Marcos knows the rainforest like the back of his hand, birds are his big passion (and soon became ours), we saw tons of wildlife, waterfalls, fascinating plants. The hike was strenuous but manageable with the right equipment (proper shoes, a rainjacket etc..). We can not thank Marcos, Susu and their family enough for this amazing experience. If you visit Monteverde, do this tour! Thank you and we wish you all the best, Teresa & Romain
