  • Eduar Leiton was our guide. Excellent knowledge of biodiversity and a warm cordiality. We liked the care that make nature, avoiding annoying noises for animals and caring for the foliage before our step to his side. A very special tip is to make the first walk, at least, with guide. Then one can try to discover things that have taught him, but do it in one, involves losing the wealth that there are around by ignore or can't see it. Another suggestion is that it is done in small groups, to exchange ideas and questions with the Guide and take your time for photographs and footage.

  • The Costa Rican Bear Grylls! If there’s something to be found, these guys will find it. Marcos was an absolute superstar for us and we loved every minute of it. Some memories (and pictures!) that will be truly cherished.
  • Marcos was the best tour guide we could have ever asked for. We explored the Cloud Forest for hours on a private tour and Marcos knew every single detail of the ecosystem. He used hi-tech equipment to give us the best views of many animals. We saw many rare birds, plants, and even spider monkeys. Our trip was perfect and was a magical experience.
  • Definitely a trip highlight! We learnt and saw so much on our morning with Marcos and really enjoyed our time with him :)
  • Monte Verde is one of the most enchanting places I've ever been to. Marcos, our guide, was exquisite from the start. He knew everything about the Cloud Forest and even the history of it. He was an absolute joy to be around and I learned so much from him. He went above and beyond, in my opinion, and we were so fortunate to have seen rare wildlife and it so happened to be sunny that morning! What a blessing! Thank you, Marcos! Pura Vida!
