We found Tracie's web page before going to Costa Rica and booked our tour. Very excited to go on the tour and we were not disappointed. We found interesting insects and animals to look at, but even more important was the great (and interesting) information provided to us by Tracie and Gianfranco. My wife and I love nature, but this... More

We booked Tracie's tour online even before we left for our holiday as we wanted to be sure to get a booking. So you can imagine how much we were looking forward to it on the night ... we weren't to be disappointed. I think this was one of the highlights of our trip. The enthusiasm of Tracie and Gianfranco... More

Tracie and her spotter John were both very knowledgeable about the Costa Rican night creatures, and were eager to tell us about them. They provided us with head lamp lights and the... More

This tour was just amazing. We were a family with 3 kids and it was suitable for every one. Tracie and John took the time to explain and to search for different species. We were able to see a lot of different spiders, frogs, a bat, some birds and other insects. The kids loved the tour, even my little girl... More

I did this on my first night in Drake Bay, trying to book in advance for another night. Well, the other night was booked. I was worried, since seeing all the bugs and snakes first might freak me out, but it didn't at all. Tracy and Gian were amazing. We saw lots of snakes, spiders, an anteater, and an opossum.... More
