This lovely and key experience of a night walk was fabulous. We ended up seeing quite a few birds with the telescope the guide brought - a definite must ie a guide. The walk lasted around two hours. No sloths were found but a whole lot of others including a white tailed viper was seen.

We had an awesome time with this tour company. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and you could tell that he quite passionate about what he does. We saw a sloth that was still at first and then our tour guide Dennis got us back to see the sloth and now we saw him moving! We had such a close look at the sloth. It was just fantastic! Thanks to Dennis and his knowledge on the behavior of the sloths that he got us back to see it. We also a tarantula and other small insects. I would highly recommend this tour company!

Walter did fantastic job. We were a group of 8 with kids from 6 - 12 yrs age. His passion for showing the travelers an unforgettable time is evident. He did not get tired by our questions and was patient with the kids. Highly recommend this tour.

There should be much fewer groups on this small area of ground. They are trying to get in as much money as possible by having lots of groups at the same time. Our guide told us about the animals that had been coming during lockdown as there were no tours, however when my wife asked if there were very few animals that night because there were too many groups, he didnt think that was a problem! We went as it was the cheapest night tour, but only just.

Our guide Kenneth was very passionate and knowledgeable about wildlife. He knew all of the different species and explained everything to us in perfectly fluent English. He has done this for years and even invited us to go see this special Eagle the next day. We got to see a sloth, pit viper, tarantula, 2 different species of toucans and some other cool insects like stick bugs etc. It was just me, my girlfriend and him. I feel like we got very lucky with the small group and also he took very professional pictures with my phone through the telescope!
