Our hotel arranged for a well informed young man named, Jaime who accompanied us on the combination tour of the "hanging bridges" and volcanoe hike. He was so knowledgeable and really made our trip very worthwhile. He noticed everything in the rainforest and gave us a great education about the animals, plants and Costa Rican life!

My wife and I visited Costa Rica for one month this past February. We stayed for almost a week in each location... Arenal, Quepos(2 days), Osa, Uvita, and Tamarindo. We went for the warmth and sunshine. CR did not disappoint us with the weather. The food was good and at times great...although at USA prices. In fact, it seems like... More

If you want to see AND UNDERSTAND the amazing nature that is all around you in Costa Rica, then Javier is your greatest discovery! We had several guides during our 8 day stay in Costa Rica, and all of them were good, but Javier was by far our favorite! His biology background gives him great insight into the plant and... More

Javier is an AMAZING tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about Costa Rica. This website was created by him. I definately recommend checking it out. He has a background in biology and is able to spot animals from almost anywhere.

My personal opinion that your tour guides can make or break the whole experience on tours in Costa Rica. Javier definitely made our experience very memorable! We spent pretty much all day with him and went to the Hanging Bridges, La Fortuna Waterfall, had a great lunch at Casona Rio Fortuna, then went on a hike around Arenal Volcano, and... More

We had very good time in Costa Rica while Javier showed us all the best places. Very affordable and professional. Just ask him a question- he would be happy to help you. If you would like to see real Costa Rica- he is the best choice of price and quality. Pura Vida!
