This tour goes over the flora and fauna of the park, the history and culture of the town and the country. It lasts 3 hours and it includes private guide only. Client provides own transportation and pays for their entrance fees at trailhead.

A private "one bubble tour" with a seasoned guide is the best way to make the most of your time in Monteverde.  It provides flexibility of timing, duration, and trail choice.

This option is great for anyone who would like a more personal touch than a standard group tour.  Also great for families with children! We offer a flat rate for your private guide, meaning it will be the same price for your one-social-bubble group of 1-8 people. A great value!

Fantastic tour

Our guide Felix was incredibly knowledgeable, kind and quick to spot and demonstrate the various wildlife. I learned a significant amount.
Best experience in Monteverde!

We were so lucky to get Felix for three days in a row (night walk, natural history walk and hummingbird garden). He was able to identify birds within seconds and could find them easily in the canopy of trees. We saw so much wildlife that we would never have found on our own. Felix was a walking encyclopedia of everything that we saw but never bored us with too much information. His knowledge really enriched our experience. A trip to Costa Rica is not complete without wildlife tours in Monteverde. Our teenage children loved it also. We were able to see a Resplendent Quetzal bird! This experience is most highly recommended.
World Class Experience

Felix was a world class tour guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable, passionate, full of positive energy, found an amazing array of birds and plants to show us, and was very personable. It was so easy to connect with him and find many interests in common. He truly exemplified "pura vida." Besides how wonderful he was, some highlights of our tour included learning about amazing ecological interconnections, seeing once in a lifetime birds, and marveling at the canopy's diversity. Felix spotted birds that other guides on the trail could not find and expertly set up his scope in seconds so we could see birds up close. This tour is something we will remember the rest of our lives. Thank you!
Our guide, Felix was amazing! I'm a plant biologist but don't know Costa Rican flora; I got so lucky.

I don't know the flora of Costa Rica and the other traveler wanted to know about animals, Felix's knowledge about insects, plants, reptiles, birds was exceptional. He gave me so many excellent videos of birds and we saw things I would not have ever had the privilege to see without him. I can't thank him enough nor recommend him highly enough. The only problem was we forgot money to tip and I feel horrible - I would have tipped him a lot and if there is a way to do so now - someone let me know.
Amazing tour with...
