Luis (Pepo) was an amazing tour guide, and led us through the area while in a downpour and somehow was able to find several animals including a sloth, tarantula, frogs, stick bugs, viper, etc. It was very informative and professional. I would highly recommend. Also note that Pepo was our guide earlier in the day at Don Juan’s for the coffee, sugar cane, and chocolate tour and we had an amazing experience there as well. Ask for this guy and you will not be disappointed.

We really enjoyed the night walk. We saw many cool animals and our guide knew a lot about them. The walk was well organized and we felt safe throughout the whole walk. We also got equipped with flashlights, which was very handy as we could spot animals by ourselves as well. Thank you again for the cool experience!

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.
