We booked a tour with Jorge over the phone who helped us create the best tailored tour to suit our needs. They were able to arrange a tour guide, Felix, to take us to the Sky Bridges and then the Curi Cancha reserve, a combo that allowed us to see what we were mainly interested in: bridges + animals sightseeing. We were on the tour by ourselves and the tour lasted 4 hours. It was perfectly balanced with a bit of hike, photo time and incredibly picturesque sights. Felix was excellent: friendly, knowledgeable and vital to spot animals (impossible to see them without his magic eye and telescope). We had the chance to see so much at the Curi Cancha reserve, a magical place: a wide variety of colourful birds, including colibrì from upclose, a tarantula in its hole, two beautiful toucans, a sleepy sloth and a pair of sleepy owls, a snake, two wild pigs, a big wild rat and a beautiful blue batterfly. The place was so quiet just before sunset time, we got in just before closing time and we had the park to ourselves: just magical. Thank you Felix and Jorge for this memorable experience!

We had an incredible walk through the Monte Verde cloud forest with a very knowledgeable guide. Felix spotted many birds we would not have otherwise seen. We were most fortunate to see a male and female quetzal, certainly not guaranteed. I am sure we would not have seen it on our own. Afterwards we discovered my husband left a beloved hat in the van and the driver actually ran it back to us before we had to check out of our hotel.

We left Arenal in the morning driving to Monteverde. After Arenal we realized it is imperative to have a tour guide. You see so much more when you have someone pointing it out to you. Otherwise it is just a walk in the park and you do not see much. While I was driving my wife was looking in our travel book and came across Pasion Costa Rica. We contacted Marcos on WhatsApp and booked two tours with him. We met our guide, Felix Barrantes, at Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve for a two hour guided tour. It was fantastic. Then at 6 pm we followed him on his motorcycle to Refugio de Vida Silvestre for a two hour night tour. Felix was incredible. He is obviously a passionate, seasoned biologist and naturist. The price included both park entrance fees and over four hours of fantastic tours. We highly recommend this company. Do not go to these parks without a guide!
