We had a great night walk with Cesar at Greentique Wildlife Refuge. We were the only two people on this particular night, so we got a nice private tour. Cesar was very knowledgeable about the animals in the area. We found several species of frogs, katydids, spiders, other insects, and the rescued caiman and crocodiles living there. I would recommend... More

Our group of 9 8th graders and 3 adults stopped here after touring Manuel Antonio. It is a small place with few crowds which was nice. We all got to see many different butterflies in the vegetation of a net enclosed area. The guide showed us the life cycle of the butterfly.

All the positive comments about Cesar are absolutely true. He is friendly, funny and extremely knowledgable. The night tour was so interesting. We saw a variety of frogs, snakes, spiders, a huge iguana, an opossum, millepede, and more. We did not walk more than 19 feet before he found something else for us to see. If you are in the... More

What a fabulous experience. Cesar the tour guide was amazing. He was incredibly knowledgeable about every living creature in the park. He was amazing at finding even the tiniest of species and setting up a telescope to enlarge them for us. He was even so kind as to take pix on our phones through the telescope lens. Both the reptile... More

For a couple of years now we have visited the night tour, always with good result. Naturally, when returning with guests, we signed up for this tour, with a total group of 10, of which 6 children. Due to the size of our group, we requested a private tour. Upon arrival the disappointment started when the guide appeared completely disinterested... More

We had a fantastic experience! Our guide, Cesar, was very knowledgable, friendly, and great with our kids. In addition to the butterflies and reptiles, we saw a baby sloth and a howler monkey. The butterfly garden is a peaceful, relaxing sanctuary. A great outing for the whole family.

This place was a true find. The spa offered great massages and facials by expert therapists. Very beautiful and relaxing. Then we enjoyed some the best ceviche I've ever tasted. Delicious! The views were also beautiful.
