I enjoyed the guided tour he provided. He pointed out many interesting facts about the plants, animals, and history of the rain forest.

Johnny is a fabulous guide. He really does love nature and he totally understood our desire for some intensive birding. But he also was super-friendly, so the activity was light and full of interesting information, conversation, and some good laughs. Johnny was able to point out dozens of birds that my wife and I would probably have missed, even with... More

If you want a guide who is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, has the sight of an eagle and is a thoroughly nice person, Johnny is your man. We saw so much we would never have spotted without him including quetzals. And so reasonably priced. Thanks Johnny.

John's enthusiasm for nature knows no bounds. He is chatty and full of knowledge and his love for his job and home town is contagious. He saw birds we couldn't even hear which was extraordinary. He adapted our day into two separate spells so that he could do some research in the middle of the day to ensure we saw... More

Very funny guide. Spots animals which others would never spot. Adjusts the tour to your demands. Afterwards we drank moonshine in his favorite pub :-) Highly recommend this guy if you want to see the things you want to see and have some fun along the way. If you're more the boring type: leave this guy alone so he can... More

He is the best guide we had in monteverde! We went on a night hike and saw birds & insects + a frog and we had a tour at Santa Elena reserve. It was a great hike and we saw birds, monkeys and got lots of information about the forest and nature around here.

Johnny made my first solo trip to a foreign land the most comfortable exciting fun experience I've ever had! He's extremely knowledgable in nature and as far as knowing his way around the country! I would recommend him to anyone who visits Costa Rica for the first time or 2nd or 3rd! You will learn, laugh and all around enjoy... More
