“best boat tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

A highly recommended tour led by a knowledgeable, enthusiastic guy named mauricio. He knew so many things we wouldve missed without a guide- a walking palm tree, poison dart frogs...an easy going and reasonable person. also makes jewelry out of nuts and shells he finds in the forest.

“Great, personable and knowledgable Guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

I bumped into Mauricio by accident, at which point he told me that he was a guide and to come back if I wanted to check out Tortuguero with him.

His price was amazingly reasonable and the guy is a sweetheart. He was born and raised in Tortuguero, but traveled around his country, working as a guide throughout Costa Rica. Consequently, he learned how to communicate with eloquence about the wonders and history of Tortuguero, as well as the rest of Costa Rica.

I had a great connection with the dude, and would send anyone I know going to Tortuguero to his tours.

“Good bloke”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

When we first met Mauricio we took a liking to him! He's a top bloke, speaks great english and he seemed to have a genuine love for nature. We had a great day with him, he knows a load about the wildlife in Tortuguero since he grew up in the rainforest. He helped us find a great, cheap place to stay and also organized a shuttle for us to leave.

“Mauricio is the guy to meet.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Rainforest Life Tours by Mauricio Rodriguez was a good choice for us. We are not big group people and really enjoyed the personal one on one with Mauricio. He is very knowledgable on the wildlife and plants of the area. He takes you in a canoe type of boat and he paddles you along the edge of the forest. The cost was $40 for two people(does not include pack entrance fee), it was a two part tour, 3 hr.Canoe in the morning then walking tour in the afternoon. We were unable to do the walking tour, due to my husband had an injury to his leg, so I can not tell you about that.
Mauricio speaks very good english and is trying to build his business. He is a hard worker and earned every bit of what we paid him.
He his located just behind the market.

“Tortuguero canal trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Maurisio gave us a great day combining a canoe trip through the canals of Tortuguero with a walk through some tropical rainforest. He is very knowledgable and personable and trying to compete against the bigger players for a place in the guiding fraternity. He was worth supporting and gave our family very personal attention.
He also helped us organise transfers to Moin and was keen to help out. Keep an eye out Rainforest Life Tours
