My husband and I spent some time in Manuel Antonio last week and we had such an amazing experience. We spent one entire day with Johan. He is very flexible in terms of scheduling a trip with him.
On our morning tour he not only spotted a variety of animals which we could never have seen by ourselves and took awesome pictures for us through his digital scope, he's also very knowledgable in explaining the habitats of different species and helped us appreciate what the nature there offers. What impressed us most is he's such a genuine person, always able to predict what we need without us asking and strived to maximize our experience.
We had a very nice lunch together at a beach-side restaurant Johan recommended before setting out for the afternoon tour. Due to weather, he's flexible enough to change plan on the spot and led us to more places to see water birds and other exotic species.
According to a list he sent to us after the tour, we saw altogether 54 kinds of birds in that afternoon! It was our first birding tour ever and so memorable!
Johan is one of those people who can always stretch himself to excel your expectation and he takes pride and joy in what he does. We will definitely recommend him to our family members and friends who would like to visit beautiful Costa Rica!
