What you'll do

* PARK TICKET (18.08 USD) MUST BE PURCHASED ONLINE (MORE INFO ONCE BOOKED).

— Once we have met and arrived to the park entrance we will walk through the main trails of the Tropical Humid Forest in Manuel Antonio National Park which is one of the best parks in Costa Rica to see wildlife.

This park is very famous for its rich biodiversity and an expert local guide is required to spot the animals and plants while share natural history about them.

Therefore, I offer you an easy hike of 2.5 to 3 hours surrounded by NATURE and hidden creatures such as SLOTHS, MONKEYS, FROGS, BIRDS, LIZARDS, INSECTS and much more.

SURELY, we're gonna enjoy and get breathtaking views of all these using my brand new ATX-SWAROVSKI-SCOPE, getting through it unique HD pictures and videos of the animals included only for you.

Finally, after spotting out many animals we will get to Manuel Antonio Beach, the best and safest beach in the area with turquoise water and white sand where we finish the tour with the last recommendations and you will have enough time for swimming up.

P.S : BRING ENERGY AND POSITIVE VIBES, IT HELPS TO FIND WILDLIFE.

Hola,

I'm Mauro, the founder and certified naturalist tour guide of Official Guide Costa Rica with a great experience working in naturalist activities and animals sighting throughout Costa Rica.

I considere myself a passionate nature lover who enjoy learning and teaching about the CR's biodiversity to make people realize how important is nature conservation. My passion for CR's biodiversity has taken me to places I would have never been without and has blessed me with multiple encounters with endangered wildlife such as Pumas, Tapirs, Ocelots, Sea Turtles and many endemic bird species.

Besides, I'm known for having an eagle eye in the forest to spot animals that would be impossible to see by your naked eyes.

Join me in the search of wildlife.

Excelente trabajo el que hizo Mauro, transmite su conocimiento y entusiasmo por la naturaleza. Definitivamente el tour guiado por Mauro fue lo que hizo que valiera la pena la vista al Parque Manuel Antonio, aprendimos, nos divertimos y disfrutamos mucho las explicaciones, de otra forma no hubieramos visto varias especies de la zona. Además nos ayudó a tomar excelentes fotografías

Mauro is a fantastic guide! His knowledge of the park and the animals is very helpful to understand the biodiversity of the place. If I had visited the park on my own, I would not have spotted any of the animals because they all hide so well in their environnement… Very worth the visit, would definitely recommend Mauro as your guide!

Die Tour durch den Manuel Antonio Nationalpark mit Mauro ist sehr empfehlenswert. Man wird am Treffpunkt herzlich empfangen und wird während der Tour mit eingebunden. Alleine hätte man diese Tiervielfalt nicht entdeckt. Mauro hat ein geschultes Auge und man merkt ihm an, das ihm das Spaß macht, was er da macht. Man wird zwischendurch gefragt ob alles gut ist, so hat er auch die Sicherheit, das sich die Gäste wohlfühlen. Auf den ersten Metern wurden schon Tiere entdeckt und Mauro nimmt sich auch die Zeit und das schöne ist man wird nicht gehetzt, so das man ein schönes Erlebnis hat und die Tour genießen kann. Ich kann diese Tour vorbehaltlos weiterempfehlen. Wir haben es nicht bereut, vielen Dank für die tolle Tour mit dir Mauro durch den Manuel Antonio Nationalpark.

Mauro is an amazing guide at the Manuel Antonio National Park! He has an eagle eye to catch any kind of creature and is extremely knowledgeable of any creature he points out! Without him we would not have seen most of the animals throughout the park and it was well worth the experience!
