We went on this tour with our 11-year old son and we all loved it. Gian and Tracie were obviously extremely knowledgable and also seemed to enjoy guiding the rest of us in the secrets of animal night life in this part of the world....More

This was our second tour with 'Spiderwoman' Tracie, who fizzes with enthusiasm for her specialist subject, arachnids. She did not disappoint. Her tours are fun and she is wonderfully knowledgeable and engaging - a great teacher about the natural world generally but especially bugs. Don't...More

We took our three daughters (ages 10, 12, and 14) on the bug tour during our stay at La Paloma Lodge. It was spectacular! Traci was so informative, and our children are still talking about all they learned. This is a MUST!!!! It is fascinating!!!!

The tour was just mind blowing. Do it! We even saw a kinkajous (the marsupilami in real). I still have no clue how Tracey and her husband find all these animals. Usually we try to avoid larger guided tours but this one was worth it.

Hi, you can just go to the website for the night tour. Trip advisor won't let me post the website, but if you google the night tour, you can find it easily.

Hello, unfortunately we do not offer the Night Tour from Puerto Jiménez. Because of logistics we can only offer the tour to guests lodging in Drake Bay near the town of Agujitas. Thanks again for your inquiry
