  • We loved our experience in Corcovado. Our guide Milton was so knowledgeable, friendly, and a pleasure to spend time with. He had made the tour so enjoyable and we could not think of a better way to se...  more »
  • Excursion of karate - La Sirena-Drake with a night at the Sirena, we did and it was really spectacular. It was a trip of 8 hours and a half full jungle, in which we saw many animals (our guide, Danier, a crack discovered almost everyone! I went with a telescope to observe them better and we explained and taught many things all the time). We slept in the siren. The next day in the morning took us others 3 hours where we saw almost all the animals missing us. It was impressive all and clearly a great adventure and the best of our trip. Also took us from Puerto Jiménez to Drake Bay rental car so we had there when we got, even cleaned it up for us! The truth is that both our guide Danier as all grooves Tour give a 10!

  • We had an amazing time. The entire Surcos tour crew we met both before and during the tour, were incredible people and very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. My wife and I would highly recommend this Tour group, Corcovado, and surrounding area!! We saw tons of wildlife and had some great hikes- Pura vida!
  • Not very good you do not need a guide to do the 1 day tour to Corcovado for sure our guide didn't direct us around much, the tour office never told us how long the tour would be they just kept saying as long as you want it to be. Our guide did not communicate well with the tour office because when we met our guide in the morning he was asking us where are permit for entry to the park was and we didn't have it obviously because the tour office had it so we had to stop there I. The morning after we already woke up a time 6 am to leave which caused a half hour delay. Guide was not talkative I have no idea how this place got such a good reivew. Our guide didn't bring a camera or a tripod which all other guides did.
  • We just come back from a 3 days hike from Corcovado with our guide Nito and everything was so wonderful!!! From the start the experience with Surco Tour was professional and human. We started our adventure with them with Cynthia who was so helpfull and patient with us. We had many questions and she takes the time to answer everyone of them very quickly. Two days before our meeting with our guide, our plane was delayed and we ask them to delay the tour at the very last minute. We call them on the weekend 15 minutes before they close to ask them to star the tour a day later. Even if they didn’t have the place for us, they managed to find us a guide! They even succeed to convince the park to dont charge us extra fees. They make all the last minute changes without charging us anything for all the troubles it gives them ( and they had just one day to make all the changes, on a Sunday!!!) Then on the day of our arrival at Puerto Jiminez we met our guide Nito. He takes us on a long walk to show us animals at Puerto Jiminez, even if it wasn’t included in the tour! Then he arranges transportation for us to go to our AIRBNB far from their office and for the next morning as well. At corcovado, everything was perfect!!! We see a lot of animals ( every species you wish to see when you go to Corcovado!!!!). The hike is just wonderful! Nito was the better guide ever! We feel he treated us like long time friends! He is a real living encyclopedia!!! Evan if he is a guide for years, he is so pationate about is work that we felt he was discovering te park for the first time with us! He seems to see every animals around us, even the small birds so high in the tree that you can’t see them with your bared eyes. When he hears a sound, he followed it and find the bird or animal at each time!! He is very generous of his time and knowledge! He is also a funny one...but I wont say more about it! Just ask for Nito to be your guide and you will have the time of your live!!! Thanks Surcos Tour and Nito, we won’t ever forget you and the life time experience you give us!

  • We spend 3 days in the dschungel and it was absolutely beautyfull. It was the best activity we did in Costa Rica and an unforgettable experience! Thanks to Nito
  • My boyfriend and I booked a 2-day trip in Corcovado starting at sirena station. From beginning to end the customer service was on point. More than a month before the trip all of our many questions were answered promptly by our customer service rep through email. Our experience during the trip was also amazing. We had Thomas as our guide and he was professional, personable and experienced--all the things you would want when you're in the jungle with someone for two days. During the two days we were able to see all the animals we wanted to see except for one. We saw many different species of birds, caymans, crocodile, squirrel monkey, howler monkey, spider monkey, peccaries, two whales on our way to the park, tapir! And a luckily a puma!!! Thomas was really patient with us during the hikes and we were pleasantly surprised that he knew his fair share of animal sounds--the animals were even reposonding back to him. He was able to point out many things that we wouldn't been able to see without him. The hike was not that difficult but we went mid August where it was muddy and some rain. We were comfortable in our hiking shoes but next time would probably even just wear hiking boots!
