The Night Tour with Tracy and Gian was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. We would have taken it over and over if we had more nights left. We did take a tour through our hotel but it did not come close to comparing to the Night Tour with Tracy.
We saw so many interesting insects, spiders, frogs and more. Tracy and Gian educated all of us on each creature they found to show. They have the expertise and eye for finding so many, you won't be disappointed.
It was awesome! I would highly recommended .

All we did was walk 150m along the main path to the Hotel.

However this took over 2 hours, we saw masses of wildlife and learnt loads. To be shown around by two people who are such enthusiasts are and so keen to share their enthusiasm is a treat that would be hard to beat anywhere.
My eldest daughter was a bit wary of coming to Costa Rica because she really doesn't like creepy crawlies. We are so glad we did this tour early on because although it really brought home just how many creepy crawlies there are in this part of the world, it removed a lot of the mystery, converted fear into curiosity and set the tone for the rest of our holiday.

Couldn't have been better.

On Aug 5, 2012, we were lucky to have Tracie and Gianfranco to ourselves for the night! We have 4 young children (6,7,10, and 11) and they absolutely loved it!!!! Even in the rain we had a fabulous time. Tracie was able to relate to the children at a level they understood. We saw the most amazing spiders, including the net casting and trap door spiders amazing!!!! Saw a couple of snakes, a venemous sadleback caterpillar and even a kinkajou!! The tour was a definite highlight of our 2 weeks in Costa Rica. Drake Bay is a wonderful secluded gem!!!! Would definitely do the tour again if in Drake Bay. WE LOVED THE BUG LADY NIGHT TOUR!!!!!!!

This was one of the best tours we did in Costa Rica. It was so amazing. Tracie and Gian are extremely knowledgable and know where so many amazing creatures live. We saw more in this hike than we did all other hikes, except for a 5-hr hike in Corcovado. I loved seeing all of the insects, spiders, amphibians, and mammals, and Tracie and Gian had so many interesting facts to tell us about all of them. I had an amazing time and it is definitely a must-do in Drake Bay. Make sure to email Tracie in advance, as we heard that they often get booked up.

I heard recommendations about this tour, but still did not expect to learn so many surprising facts about frogs, crabs, spiders and more. It was beautiful to see these special creatures at night, and get a glimpse into this world which was unknown to me so far.
I highly recommend this tour for all ages, don't skip it if you are in Drake bay.
