Just perfect!

I would like thank Luis and his colleagues for the stunning 2 tours we took:
1 - Turtle watching in their natural habitat. We were lucky to witness a turtle laying her eggs. The tour was very ethical and our guide made sure we could see the magic without being a nuisance to the turtles, which is very important in my opinion!
2 - The canoe tour in the canals. So beautiful… so relaxing… no engines disturbing the peace of Nature.

We were delighted and we can only recommend Luis and Don Chico Tours. Thank you Luis for being so nice and professional!
Great guide

A brilliant canoe tour. We saw howler monkeys, spider monkeys, white faced capuchins and an anteater in the trees. So many birds, lizards and baby caimans too! Luis knew so much about the wildlife and the area and was really helpful and great with our children.
e highly recommend this tour!

Experiencia magica

Fue una actividad super bonita, en una canoa con otras 4 personas más el guía (Erik) que nos dio un montón de explicaciones, y gracias al cual pudimos ver distintos animales y nos metió con la canoa por sitios más apartados también.
Además, anteriormente el proceso de reserva super ágil y fácil y claro, simplemente por wasap.
Hice también otros dos tours (nocturno y diurno por el parque de tortuguero) con otro guía (abel) y también fue una gozada, el empeño que ponía en buscar a los animales, tener cuidado de que no tocasemos nada que no debíamos, y toda la conversación durante el tour.
Desde luego es una empresa seria con buenos profesionales.
