Juan was an excellent guide - he was very knowledgeable, easy to listen/talk to and found so many animals/insects for us to see. He definitely made our tour worth it! My four kids, ages 12-18, were definitely impressed, as were my husband and myself. I would recommend this tour - and ask for Juan!

After a total of three weeks in Costa Rica, I can honestly say this was one of the top experiences we enjoyed. We arranged a private tour during a port stop on the Windstar Cruise line in Quepos. We had heard that Manuel Antonio was just too busy and we were looking for an alternative.

What a find! As a private reserve it had very few people, Juan made sure we always felt we had the park to ourselves. His ability to spot frogs, birds, wild insects was amazing. But with Juan, it is not just about 'spotting' things, you really LEARN about nature. He actually made me realize that a termite nest is 'beautiful' by explaining their function in the forest. His love for nature and his willingness to share was amazing. Luckily the photos he helped me take on my phone...make me look like a professional photographer.

If you have the chance to book with him - don't miss out!

Jeremios is a very knowledgeable guide who took a great time showing us the wildlife and explaining their habitats. The pace was great, we were lucky to spot many sloths! The tour ended with fruits and smoothie back at the starting point. Highly recommended!

My family of four was very impressed with Francisco’s knowledge of the park’s insects and animals, and history.

At one point, he ran back to go find a toucan that he heard.

And, he guided us through at our pace (a bit quicker).

Mauro was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and attentive to our whole group. He pointed out so many things that we would have missed. We considered going to Manuel Antonio Park on our own but are so glad we didn't. We might have seen a couple of monkeys and the beach on our own. We saw sloths, crabs, interesting insects (a hot pink dragonfly and a rainbow grasshopper), a treefrog, squirrel monkeys, iguanas, and helmet headed lizards and more. With his powerful scope I was able to get National Geographic like photos from my cell phone. It was well worth the free extra dollars to have an amazing guide, transportation, and the ease of entry to the park without having to worry about parking and getting tickets. We highly recommend Mauro as your guide with Jade Tours.
