This was our second tour with 'Spiderwoman' Tracie, who fizzes with enthusiasm for her specialist subject, arachnids. She did not disappoint. Her tours are fun and she is wonderfully knowledgeable and engaging - a great teacher about the natural world generally but especially bugs. Don't miss.

We took our three daughters (ages 10, 12, and 14) on the bug tour during our stay at La Paloma Lodge. It was spectacular! Traci was so informative, and our children are still talking about all they learned. This is a MUST!!!! It is fascinating!!!!

My wife and I went on this tour in February of 2017. This guided tour of Drake Bay's night creatures far surpassed expectations. We saw all kinds of creatures on our walk. However it was the expertise of Tracy and her husband Gianfranco that really made this tour stand out. If your going to Drake Bay and want to learn... More

My family and I (kids aged 9 and 11) went on the Night Tour with the famous "Bug Lady" Tracie and her husband in mid December 2016 when we stayed in Drake Bay. It was one of the best tours we went on while in Costa Rica. Tracie and her husband are very experienced, knowledgeable and engaging whilst they take... More

The tour was just mind blowing. Do it! We even saw a kinkajous (the marsupilami in real). I still have no clue how Tracey and her husband find all these animals. Usually we try to avoid larger guided tours but this one was worth it.

This was my third night-time tour in a jungle or rain forest, and it was decidedly the best. The tour leader, Tracie, is a biologist who has spent 15 years studying Drake Bay. She is an enthusiastic explorer of creatures of the night, and she is eager to pass her knowledge on. Before the tour begins she provides everyone with... More

My 13-year-old daughter and I loved this tour. Gian and Tracie spotted a huge number of nocturnal animals for us to see, including different kinds of frogs and spiders, a sloth, a woolly opossum and a kinkajou! They are both extremely knowledgeable scientist/guides. This tour was one of the highlights of our ten days in Costa Rica -- not to... More

Tracie turns showing you spiders and other night animals into an art form. She spins great stories and entertains while teaching all about nature and the world around. Very enthusiastic and well organized. A great two hour tour.
