Attraction details
Owner description: I offer high quality tours of discovery, expertly designed to fulfill the adventurous spirit in you. Reef and rainforest explorations are edifying and exhilarating - and often hands-on! Corcovado National Park is a breathtaking site no matter how many times you tour its vast unspoiled beauty. I am located in Drake Bay, near to Corcovado, right in the heart of one of Costa Rica's most untouched ecological wonders. The Osa Peninsula still holds many surprises for those seeking to see nature, all Corcovado area can only be described as "the most biologically intense place on Earth" (National Geographic).

“Great Night Swimming Tour”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Pacheco is a great native guide, he knows what he is doing and has full positive attitude. You have to look for him at Drake Bay town. Our night swimming tour was amazing (have you ever seen your arms shining inside the ocean?), simple and good rates. He offered a lot more tours; I would definitely look for him on my next visit to Drake Bay. Fernando Trejos.

“Carlos Pacheco is THE man to find when you're in Drake Bay”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

What a gem this guy is! Seek him out when you arrive and he'll be the best guide, ally and source of information your could ask for in this glorious corner of the globe. We were in Drake Bay late June 2012 and Pacheco (aka, the barefoot guide - hasn't worn shoes in 18 years) met us on his atv on arrival at our rental house. In the following days he checked in on us regularly to help (lots of trouble with the rental), brought us towels and water (which was out in the entire town), gave us a wonderful tour on the peninsula, and was a great pal to our family under some tough conditions. His remarkable energy, love for the Osa Peninsula and Drake, and his care and friendliness with no financial interest or gain for himself were just remarkable. Ticos are indeed some of the kindest and warmest people on the planet and Pacheco is an amazing example. He's an accomplished naturalist and ideal expert for planning and maximizing on your time in Corcovado. Thanks Pacheco and hope to meet you again soon!
