“Volcan tenorio and Rio Celeste”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We had a wonderful experience walking the trails of Volcan Tenorio National Park with Esteban and learning about birds and nature with him. We are not birders, yet became excited to spot the different species and enjoyed the birds' beauty, sounds, and Esteban's knowledge about them. He's been observing nature and birds of his native Costa Rica since childhood, and it was a pleasure to have him sharing his passion with us for a day. He has an easy and relaxed way about him, listens and customizes things to match folks' interests.

“A wonderful birder and gracious guide.”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

I cannot say enough about the 2 days of birding and adventuring we had with Esteban.His knowledge of the birds Costa Rica, there behavior, calls and song was truly impressive. A wonderful sense of humor and a true gentleman. We could not have asked for a more experienced guide . Hopefully will return to do Monteverde with him.

“Esteban is the best”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We spent 2 days, one for a night tour in curi-cancha, and one for a daytime walk at a private reserve. My 6 year old boy was full of questions and Esteban was really enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Both my kids (ages 4 and 6) said that hiking with him was the highlight of our 2 weeks in Costa Rica. Excellent English explanations, warm and friendly, NOT TO BE MISSED!

“Birdin tour in Monteverde”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Esteban is a very knowledgable and intuitive naturalist with a great knack for locating birds. He does provide private tours throughout Costa Rica as well as in Monteverde. Had some great views of Three-wattled Bellbird, Resplendent Quetzel and Blue-crowned Motmot. Look him up. I assumed everyone was up there to bird. Let him know. Still, I had a great morning.

“Quetzal sightings in Curi-Cancha with Esteban!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Esteban was recommended by Johan, a naturalist in Manuel Antonio. Johan was amazing and we knew Esteban would have to be too. We were so glad to get in touch with him. He picked us up and took us to Curi-Cancha where we had such a wonderful time with him and our group. We searched for the quetzal and Esteban wouldn't give up and then we spotted not one, not two, but three! Two of those were juveniles. It was like magic. One of the best moments of our trip.Thanks Esteban!
