The night tour with Tracy and her husband was excellent. While one spoke and showed us creatures, the other was off finding the next one. Difficult to take pics at night, but a great experience!

Hi, you can just go to the website for the night tour. Trip advisor won't let me post the website, but if you google the night tour, you can find it easily.

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
