We thoroughly enjoyed this evening hike through the forest around Drake Bay. Our guides (Tracie & John) were extremely knowledgeable, as well as friendly and entertaining. We saw all sorts of fascinating creatures including a fishing bat, a rare velvet worm, a snake eating a lizard, a sloth and various frogs and spiders. The hike (which for us lasted about... More

And not just bugs, but snakes, lizards, spiders, and bats as well. The information and stories the couple told was fascinating. trap door spiders. black lighting scorpions. finding snakes in the darkness. Was... More

Tracie the Bug Lady and Gian, her husband, were really fantastic last night. We were lucky to be a small group of only four, so we could see easily and ask lots of questions. It's great the way that one searches while the other talks to you, so they're always finding things to look at. Their enthusiasm was contagious, so... More

This was the most interesting and fascinating tour I have ever been on! The passion and enthusiasm that Tracie and Gian share is catching and despite the rain, I did not want the tour to end.

We have done multiple night tours in Costa Rica and 2 years ago in Malaysia. The night tour with Tracie and Gianfranco was for sure the best one we have done. Tracie and Gianfranco are very passionate and knowledgeable about the Costa rica animals and nature in general. We learned a lot about the nightlife in this beautiful area. Very... More

Being a couple with above average interest for nature, this tour was spot on. I am however sure those less interested will find it fascinating as well, as Gian and Tracy did a great job in presenting the fun facts of the critters of Drake Bay. We spotted a huge array of insects, frogs and snakes. Our guides did an... More

Traci and her husband Gian guided us on a fascinating 3-hour tour of the creatures of the rainforest. We encountered frogs, toads, snakes, spiders, bats, several insects, and the rarely spotted velvet worm! They enthusiastically explained the life cycle and habits of the animals, which made the tour very interesting! After the tour they sent those interested a list of... More

We recently took the bug tour with Tracie and Gian. They were extremely informative. We saw a lot of frogs and insects. Although it ended up raining most of the evening, we still had a great time.
