I love nature, plants & animals, and Corcovado is one of the most exciting places I have visited. I lost a lot of important equipment at the airport and feared I had to cancel the trip last minute. However, Surcos Tours helped... More

Nito took us on a half-day trip (6 am to 2 pm) to Matapalo. He is extremely knowledgeable and provided us with some great photos by placing our smartphones against the lens of his spotter scope. And he loves this land and all of nature and actively works to protect it.

We had sightings of just about everything there was to see - sloths, ant-eaters, frogs of every sort, macaws, toucans, tapirs, all the monkeys, coatis, agoutis, countless species of... More

My wife and I had the privilege of meeting and hiking with Carlos Madrigal of Surcos Tours last summer. We went on the 3 day hike into Corcovado that left from Puerto Jimenez. The park itself was one of the most magical and sacred places that either of us had ever visited. The forest and the beaches were incredible and... More

This was our second trip to Costa Rica and we were really excited about going to Serena Lodge. The planning process and organisation was time consuming. a little confusing and there were plenty of...

It was raining the whole day but we saw a puma, anteater, monkeys, sloths and macaws. Seeing a puma this close is something i will never forget. Great experience and the guide knew a lot about the area and animals.

We were just not lucky enough to see a Puma or Tapir. Keller was giving his best to find all the animals we... More
