Amazing sights to see at night. Your guides know more than a lifetime full of information about the endless array of sights to see in the night jungle. From amazing frogs to spiders you'll never see anywhere else. A once in a lifetime experience.

The bug tour with Tracy & John was simply superb. It was an experience our family can never forget. The 3 hr tour we joined out of curiosity but ended with sheer admiration for our guides and the astonishing world of bugs.

Tracy does the most wonderful night tour I have ever experienced anywhere! Even if you are afraid of spiders, you're going to fall in love with the trapdoor spider. She knows exactly where to touch that mossy rock wall, and all the tiny little trapdoor...More

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
