The night walk is an incredible activity focus on finding those nice animals missed during the day, for example frogs, toads, arachnids, insects, snakes, and some nocturnal mammals found in the area. The Pelagic and standard Whale and dolphin watching tour that takes you to an amazing magic world of jumping happy creatures. The horseback riding tour to visit waterfall or just to gallop the horse during low tide and even program the activity for the evening so you can also enjoy the sunset while horseback riding. The bird watching tour done early in the morning or in the evening are the best options for performing this activity, since it is the time when birds are more active. The canopy tour, a great chance to experience the adrenaline of being launch in a cable going sometimes above the of the trees. Rural tours to support those little companies and the families that depend on them. The Sierpe mangrove tour is a very activity that shows a forest that experiences drastic changes with the different tides. The seabird watching which is a very special activity for birders that want to take their love for birding further away from shore looking for some species that never come to land, nesting in rocks in the ocean and islands. the kayaking tour for those who like the adventure and the exercise. Tubing along the river, and a lot more. Also we offer holyday houses for families or groups of friends, and packages suitable for your desires.

I went to an two-day tour with my brother to Corcovado with an overnight stay and Allan was our guide. We started from Drake Bay and took the speedboat to Sirens Station. I warmly recommend Allan since he did and excellent job spotting animals for us, while also showing an impressive amount of knowledge about the forest and the animals dwelling there. He also speaks excellent English and has a friendly, easygoing attitude. The tour itself was really close to nature with all that includes. Rain, warm humid days, mosquitos and ticks, sleeping in a tent, swimming in natural ponds - just the way we wanted it to be :-)

Like many other visitors, my girlfriend and I were very excited at the prospect of experiencing true, unadulterated wilderness in the Corcovado National Park. Our 2-day trip to the park with overnight stay in the La Sirena ranger station, guided by Allan from Osa Great Adventure, delivered just that and actually exceeded our expectations.

Allan met with us the day before the trip (he came to our hotel in Drake Bay) to explain the dynamics of the adventure. He was extremely helpful and happy to answer all our questions, and gave what we found to be excellent recommendations on what exactly to bring along for the trip.

The following day we were taken to the national park by boat from Drake Bay. The boat journey in itself was extremely scenic and really contributed to building up our excitement for this adventure, as we saw the last signs of civilization slowly disappear in the distance and the landscape turn into a completely unspoled forest worthy of the age of the dinosaurs.

After our (wet) landing on the beach of the park near La Sirena, Allan efficiently helped us get moving quickly to the ranger station, as we couldn't wait to begin! We then settled in La Sirena -- importantly, Allan provided a tent for us to sleep in.

What followed was the first of two unforgettable days in the dense, animal-packed jungle of the Corcovado. Allan led us along several trails throughout the course of the two days we spent there, making sure we got to experience as much of the biodiversity the forest could offer as possible. In doing so, he repeatedly demonstrated his great knowledge of the flora, fauna and ecology of the park.

But what really struck us were two things in particular: First of all, it was immediately obvious that Allan had a very sharp eye for spotting all sorts of creatures, no matter how tiny, in the forest. Actually, his nose (and ears) are just as sharp! We were constantly amazed at how he could correctly anticipate the presence of animals just by their smells. Secondly, Allan had a specialist's knowledge of where and when specific individuals were likely to be found. On more than one occasion he took us to specific sections of the park in the hope that some of the habitual animals would appear -- and each time they did!

Allan also has a very good sense of humour and a pleasant light side. This too added to the quality of the experience.

In conclusion, I would strongly recommend Allan as your next guide to the wonders of the Corcovado National Park!

Osa Great Adventure is a small agency runned by Allan Guevarra Quiros who organizes tours in the jungle or on the sea. I went out with them to Corcovado Park, I went snorkeling to Cano Island and I went on a night hike to observe insects ans frogs :-)
Everything was well organized, I booked on internet, Allan contacted me to give me information and we met once I was in Drake Bay to organize the different trips
All went well and Drake Bay is a wonderful place!
