Park guide, Roy Orozco provided both those qualities on our LGCF group tour of the park. In such a vast area it is a must to know what you are looking for so you can really appreciate what you are seeing. Roy was very knowledgeable and patient with millions of questions and inquires posed by this group. he is 4 stars for sure.

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.

Our group spent a lovely morning on Roy's tour. His scientific knowledge of native birds, mammals, flowers, and insects was immense, and was well supported by his Ipad illustrations and his quick zoom lense on a scope attached to a tripod. For example, he showed us (by his zoom lense), a hummingbird's tiny nest with several baby bird becks and heads peeping over edge of hummingbird nest. Whenever we wanted a photo, he assisted taking the close up shot through his scope. Those photos actually turned out great!

My family and I had the good fortune to have Ray as our guide at Manuel Antonio Park on a recent trip to Costa Rica. Roy was extremely knowledgeable and very kind. We had a great time and we would highly recommend his tour.
