We had a wonderful time with Allan in Corcovado. We shed tears multiple times at the natural beauty that lie within the jungle.

We heard a lot of mixed reviews for the wildlife activity in September as well as overall enjoyment. We were extremely happy we went when we did and would gladly do it again. It didn't rain at all during our overnight Corcavado trip. And only a few times during our stay in drake bay..usually in the evening for an hour or 2. But the rain is warm and comfortably refreshing.

As for the wild life.. we saw almost everything we could have hoped for.

-We stood at the base of a tree and watched a 3 toed sloth within 3 feet from our heads.

-during the walk on the beach towards the end of our stay Allan tracked a young puma behind some grasses in an under clearing. And we stood 20 feet from the creature and it was most breathtaking. We felt completely safe.

-we saw an assortment of spiders, ant colonys, snakes and other small creatures as well as many mammals

-we viewed scarlet macaws as well as about 100 other types of birds.

-the trees and vegetation were lush.. some old growth trees were 20 ft ( 6 meters) across with giant aerial roots that crawl through the forest floor.

-during the end of the first day Allan perfectly guided us to the beach in perfect display for a beautiful sunset. (He took a pinicle honeymoon picture of my wife and I

The trip was everything we could have asked for and more. Allan is a great guy and takes care of the people trekking with him. He is very knowledgeable and lives for the jungle. This is his passion. We also consider Allan one of our friends were glad to have come in contact with.

Thank you allan. Pura Vida. Until we meet again!!!!

Allan has a wide knowledge of the animals, plants and the nature in Costa Rica. This makes his tours so interesting. He is fun, outgoing and he tells you also everything about the culture, food etc. you wanna know. I did the horse riding tour. The horses are healthy and they are in a very good condition. We were on the beach, went through a little river (lucky me my horse knew how to swim :-), we had Coconut Water right on the beach and he explained me the plants and animals that were around... Really cool tour.
I especially appreciated that he is aware of the nature needs and is trying to protect the environment. He helped me to organise other tours and made sure everything worked out for me, so I could make the beste out of my stay on Osa. I can highly recommend this guide.

Fascinating information, 1st rate adventure and GREAT laughs! Allan knows how to tour!! We saw toucans, monkeys, parrots, sloths, spiders and butterflies living peacefully and happily in their natural environment. Allan knows how to preserve and sustain the ecosystem and he is a great educator - both in wildlife and Spanish. I know I will be returning. Gracias Allan! X
I would also recommend staying with his tia hermosa, Silita (of Casa Silita). A really generous and hospitable family - pay them a visit!! You won't regret it.
