About
This activity is very special for people who want to really know the natural wealth that we find in Monteverde and in Costa Rica in general. The idea is to start at 6:00 am and move to the desired place, not without making a talk before walking, where points of interest are touched for the visitor. During the four hours of the tour it is possible to observe many birds of different species, in addition different animals are usually found, among mammals, reptiles or insects. Costa Rica is world famous for its rich biodiversity and even more for the abundance of birds found in it. This is a beautiful experience if you want to wake up in the forest surrounded by the wonders of nature and observing the jewels found in this beautiful place.

Great, fantastic, highly recommended
Jason is a fantástic guide. He seems to know everything. He so much interested in finding birds and other animals. And we did! During the nightwalk we sag so many animals and Jason has always his equipment so that we were able to take fantastic fotos.
We booked Jason directly after the nightwalk for the next day.
And that was the highlight of vacation. Thanks to Jason we saw 4 Quetzales- it was incredible.
100% recommendation!

Have you never seen a sleeping angry Bird?
Mar. 2020 • Family
We have seen an "Angry Bird' which was really an Emerald Toucan. Jason was friendly and went above and beyond to spot wildlife. we saw two green vipers, sleeping hummingbirds, a bioluminescent clicking bug (forget name) and lizard. My rating is based in my two twelve year old boys, wide and myself. Remember to bring a light rain coat since you may get misted. How often do you get to hike a rainforest at night?

A birding trip to remember!
Jan. 2020
Jason picked me up at my hotel bright and early and we went directly to our first birding location. Jason quickly found birds by both sight and sound, introducing me to the song of the Elegant Euphonia and many other birds.

After about an hour we went to a great coffee-shop run by a Woman's Cooperative for a quick pick-me up and then we were off to Curi-Cancha Reserve (which doesn't open until 8:00 A.M.) where we saw both a male and female Resplendent Quetzal, a host of humingbirds, owls, and many, many, more beautiful birds. Thanks to Jason's patience and skill I learned to recognize the song of some birds.

Jason's powerful scope provided me with close-up views of the birds and photos taken with my cell phone camera held up against the scope. I had such a wonderful morning I arranged for Jason to take my husband and I for a tour of the Cloud Forest the next day.

Jason not only provided me and my husband with ample information about the birds we saw but also pointed out and provided interesting information on the plants and other wildlife we saw.

Jason is an exceptional guide and generous with his time. Since returning home from Costa Rica I have sent Jason many of my bird photographs which I took elsewhere in Costa Rica. He has very kindly responded to all of my emails and identified the birds for me.

Jason is the Bird Guru
Not just a Guru of Birds, but of all the local Flora and Fauna. I have been to MonteVerde twice and been on 5 tours with Jason in total. He sees things that you would never in a million years see for yourself. He literally can find the invisible, and then tell you all about it, and let you take pictures. I will use him every time I go to MonteVerde. Without Jason, you are basically just walking through the woods.

Excellent day and night walk
We booked a morning bird watching tour at the Curi Cancha reserve with Jason and were so impressed with his ability to spot wildlife that we booked a night tour at Monteverde Wildlife refuge with him the following night.
The night tour was amazing, one of the highlights of our time in Costa Rica. We saw sloths, a porcupine, a snake, a tarantula, a sleeping howler monkey, and lots more sleeping birds.
Jason is super friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about Costa Rican wildlife and conservation. You need a guide to spot wildlife in Costa Rica and if you are in the area I highly recommend that you speak to Jason.

Hummingbirds, owls, quetzal and much more
Jan. 2020 • Couples
Jason took us through the beautiful reserve and displayed a real depth of knowledge of the flora and fauna of this stunning part of the world. He took time to explain what we were seeing and how to identify the different species. I would highly recommend taking a tour with this knowledgeable young man.
