The highlight of or visit to Manzanillo!! Our accommodation coordinator, Stephanie, set us up on a "jungle" tour with Omar. Upon meeting him, he welcomed us with his energetic personality and immediately engaged us, in our tour by questioning our knowledge of the area and Costa Rica, in general. Omar loves to tell jokes and learn new ones, so come... More

This was the first of several visits to the different national refugees in Costa Rica, and I had alot of use of what Omar thought me in... More

Omar is an extremely personable, informed and knowledgeable local guide who really delivers an adventurous and enjoyable experience. Excellent observational skills and a deep understanding of the forest make for a tour that far surpasses expectations. This tour is best for those who really wish to learn about nature and are up for an adventure.

Omar's hike through the jungle was everything we could have asked for and more! Omar is very knowledgable and engaging, and put me at ease in the jungle environment. I was initially afraid of going on this hike because of my fear of snakes, but Omar definitely knows what he is doing and "had our backs" the whole time. Our... More

We took the Manzanillo rainforest hiking tour yesterday morning. Omar was on time at the meeting point and took us into the rainforest. He was constantly sharing information about the country, his home town, the plants and animals. And to bring up the mood he was telling lots of jokes. You could see he loved his country, and his life.... More

We did 2 tours with Omar, the kayak tour and the jungle hike. Both were great fun and really interesting. Omar can spot animals from miles away that would just look like a shadow to us. We saw all kinds of flora and fauna and learned tons about the area. If you are looking for a guided adventure, he's your... More

Omar knows his stuff! If you want to enjoy a great tour then I really recommend Omar. You will see and learn at the same time. We always send friends to him when they want a tour that doesn't miss a single animal, bird or reptile in the jungle.
