“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

This is such an amazing place. Beautiful butterflies, crocodiles, monkeys, frog and many, many other things to see. It's educational as well as entertaining. The night nature walk is supposed to be the incredible. I'm going back in December and I definitely have that in my to do list.

“Night nature walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The night nature walk was great. The guide was very knowledgeable and we saw many frogs and animals. Much better than Manuel Antonio park. You walk with flashlights otherwise you are in darkness very cool Here you held animals that you saw through a telescope at Manuel Antonio park. Ages went from 71 to 16. All enjoyed.

ask for Michael as personal guide, he was wonderful we thoroughly enjoyed the tour, saw lots of adorable monkeys, beautiful butterflies, and much more. It's a great value, but definitely use a private guide foe best experience.

“"Best Wildlife Tour in Costa Rica"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

I will begin by saying "Wow, what an experience!"
I went on the Jungle Night Walk tour with a few friends and I really didn't know what to expect. The tour was about to begin when it started raining harder than I had ever experienced before. I thought possibly the tour would be cancelled, but we were informed this is the BEST time for a tour. Reason being, all of the frogs are very active during this time and you see MORE of them, which we did. While on this tour we saw, red-eye tree frogs, gladiator frogs, bullfrogs, hour glass tree frogs and toads....just to new a few! Thankfully I had my camera with me, as I was able to capture numerous pictures of the precious wildlife. Not only did we see frogs, we saw snakes, rare insects, arachnids, caymans, crocodiles, and turtles. Our guide, Johnny, had more knowledge about each and every species we came across and a story to go along with it.
We were also educated by Johnny on how they use organic compost for the plants, tree's and they also germinate seeds for the reforestation programs. It was a very educational tour and we learned a lot about what Manuel Antonio Nature Park (Fincas Naturales) does for sustainable practices within the refuge. Now, don't get this park confused with the National Park because they are two different places, however they give tours to the National Park as well.
Not only does the Manuel Antonio Nature Park "Walk the Walk" but they "Talk the Talk!" What I mean by this is that often times people advertise that they are environmentally involved in saving the environment, but they do nothing to support it. The Nature Park proved to me that they really do care and they are always striving to protect nature in every possible way.
I would strongly encourage everyone to take this tour (even when it's raining) and see all that they have to offer! Excellent tour, Excellent Guide, and well worth the money!
