  • I don't know if I will be able to express the AMAZING experience I had with Surcos Tours (and Nito as a guide) in a few lines. For many years I had Corcovado National Park in my bucket list and I...  more »

  • Just returned from a fabulous birding holiday with Nito and Giovanni. It was an incredible experience and Nito’s wide ranging knowledge of everything from ants to volcanos was amazing along with an extraordinary ability to spot birds and other wild things at great distances and get them in the scope so they really could be seen and photographed. We had many interesting side trips and stayed in a variety of well chosen hotels, research stations and lodges and in all the meals were delicious. Given that it is Costa Rica some of the roads were a challenge but all masterfully negotiated by our lovely driver, Giovanni. Our trip also included travel by boat and plane. Two weeks was a great introduction to a country I definitely want to visit again!
  • We had a great time at our two day trip. Arnulfo was a great guide and with all his enthusiasm he showed us a lot of nature and animals. The stay at the ranger station was nice as well.
  • I ordered the tour two months advance and from the very beginning the communication with the Surcis Tours was very smooth and clear. I received all the details about the different options of hikes. I chose a 3-days tour to Corcovado and I was really lucky to have Kevin as a guide! Everything was just perfectly organised and Kevin was extremely good in showing us so many animals! Bravo!
  • In the beginning difficult communication via email and with phone (they spoke hardly any English) but then we had very good en quick email communication. The trip was amazing, Arnulfo was a good guide!
  • We just came back from an awesome three day trip with Surcos Tours, walking from Carate station to Sirena on Day 1 with a two night stay in Sirena. Our guide Enrique was our hero! ;) With his help we found so many animals including the elusive Tapir and several anteaters. With his 15 years experience as a guide in Corcovado, he was great at explaining everything about the flora and fauna and he was also very organised, making sure we always set off on time to see the animals we wanted to see. Staying with him and the other tourists and rangers at Sirena, it became clear that he is a local legend - everyone knew him and was happy to meet him on the trails to point them in the direction of the animals. Finally, Diana from Surcos was tremendously helpful at organising our trip to Corcovado and deserves a special mention. Getting to and around the Osa pensinsula can be difficult and having read various forum posts I was left relatively puzzled how to best plan our trip. Diana was incredibly helpful from the beginning and never tired of responding to our many questions before our trip. No doubt we would recommend Surcos and Enrique to anyone planning to visit Corcovado! Their good reputation is well-deserved and several guides we met earlier in Costa Rica had mentioned Surcos tours to us as a great tour organiser independently.
