Our Pasión tours included a morning Natural History tour (3 hours) with a focus on birding and a "snack" included, and a Night Walk (2 hours). Jorge was helpful and responsive in setting up the tours in advance and our guide, Felix, was very knowledgable, friendly, patient, and fun to spend time with. My husband said "I get the feeling that Felix would be out here doing this even if he wasn't getting paid," and it is true that his genuine passion for the environment and all of the incredible flora and fauna shine through.
We were a group of 4, two adults and two kids, and we loved having our own private, professional guide. We were able to see some spectacular birds, including the Resplendent Quetzal, and Felix shared his eBird list with me to document all of the 40 bird species we saw that morning. Between the morning and night tours, we also saw a Capuchin monkey, two species of pit viper, blue morpho butterflies, leaf-cutter ants, agoutis, coatis, collared peccary, the rufous-eyed stream frog, tarantulas, stick insects, and more! The optical quality of Felix's scope was excellent (we learned just how good it was when we later took a tour in another region of the country and that guide's scope was just okay) and he helped us to get some incredible photos with an iPhone through the scope.
Now, to the "snack." The food was excellent and much more than we expected in both quantity and quality. We enjoyed a full, delicious lunch with leftovers to take with us, and were pleased to have Felix join us and patiently answer all of our questions about life in Costa Rica. We even spotted a few more birds (Blue-crowned motmot!) from the pleasant, shady deck where we were eating.
We unreservedly recommend booking a tour with Pasión Costa Rica! Thank you, Jorge and Felix!
