Good service, good timing and the most important thing that they respect the pick up time from hotel which is not very often in Costa Rica.

I suggest spending the extra money to get these guys to show you things you'll never spot on your own. Efrain was my guide and he's personally committed to showing you all the places and animals he loves and knows since childhood. Highly recommend.

Efrain has a deep connection to Manuel Antonio, his family being one of the only ones to live in the area for generations before it became a national park. He was able to spot the smallest creatures from far away within a blink of an eye and prep the binoculars for all to see. He also helps you take photos... More

I am so glad we came upon Efrain and his guys when trying to find parking at the park, which was very crowded. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and had Superman vision! This guy could pick out a small cricket from 50 yards away!!! He knew the animals' genus in Spanish, Latin, and English. We saw sloths, monkeys, insects, iguanas,... More

Manuel Antonio park is amazing and the beaches are spectacular. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys beaches, hiking, or wildlife. The guides are kind and knowledgable and he helped us see many things that we would have otherwise looked over.

Seriously, the guy would be walking along, telling us about things, and then point to something great. There were some bugs on leaf and he spotted it, got the scope out, told us about it, and I walked up to them and he was right. Crazy. Really knowledgeable and funny. I am a tour guide as well and we all... More

We loved the wildlife tour with Minor at Manual Antonio! It was a great way to see some of the beautiful wildlife that this amazing national park has to offer. Minor is incredibly knowledgable! We saw some sloths, monkeys, lizards, and birds. The best part was being able to swim in the beautiful beaches after the tour was over. A... More
