What can I say about Roy Orozco that hasn’t already been said? We have been bird-watching all over the world, but have rarely – if ever – encountered a nature guide with such a passion for his country and its wildlife, especially its birds.
We booked trips to Savegre, Carara, Esquipulas, and Los Cusingos, but Mr Orozco also showed us much more along the way, taking the time to seek out our target species, whether or not they were in the location we had booked.
He has a great sense of humour; he was always on time, and his prices were very reasonable.
The depth of his knowledge about the plants and insects, as well as birds, was impressive, and his honesty, on the very few occasions when he did not know the answer to one of our questions, was refreshing.
We would recommend Mr Orozco as a guide for anyone with an interest in wildlife who wants to get the best out of a visit to Costa Rica.
