Seeing and taking photos and videos through Edwin"s telescopic lens. He is so astute to the sounds of the wildlife in the rainforest. We got to see 2 &3 toes sloths many reptiles,frogs,snakes and spiders. Edwin took the time to explain each viewing on the lens. There were only 6 on the tour,which kept it intimate and personal.

Excellent experience (private tour for our family) with our guide Carlos. Carlos is a walking encyclopedia and was able to spot lots of animals and took beautiful photos and videos for us.

Don't recommend. just came back from Costa Rica,family of 4,visiting Manuel Antonio and La Fortuna. i booked Manuel Antonio park private tour tickets in advance, based on the tour operator good reviews .we were very very disappointed not to see any animals ,which should be in the park.it was heavy rain ,when we approached the park and instead of cancelling tour ,because experienced tour operated knows that animals cant be spotted during the rain, we just went through the park and saw spider and grasshopper in lens. instead of 2.5-3 hr tour we had 1.5 with some stops(changing clothes ,bathrooms).Very boring and unprofessional service, we paid for the tour $160 + park entrance $72+7parking.Park its self is nothing special, since such plants can be seen everywhere around Costa Rica and we saw it before in other countries with tropical climate. want my money back for the guide service.

Edwin was a wonderful tour guide. He sent clear details prior to our tour and made it easy to meet up and begin on time. He was very informative and found so many animals for us to enjoy. He also took pictures and video that he shared with us after the tour. If you visit Manuel Antonio, an early morning tour with Edwin is a must-do! Pura Vida!

Edwin was very knowledgeable and knew way more than beyond the average tour guide. My children asked SO SO SO many questions and Edwin had very good responses to all. Plus, his telescope and I-Phone capabilities allow you to get access to ALL of the photos from the trip. Zero time is wasted with everyone getting a turn looking thru the telescope lens, it all displays so everyone can see. It was a very excellent experience.

We visited Manuel Antonio at the end of July and had Edwin guide us. If you're looking to see lots of animals, unusual insects, and understand the flora and fauna of the Costa Rican jungle, I would recommend Edwin. If your goal is to make it to the beach in record-setting time, as seemed to be the goal of other groups we saw, try someone else. Several times, we had other groups double back to us when Edwin spotted something they had just walked past. His camera set-up resulted in some great photos that also allowed us to live in the moment while he worried about preserving it. We even had people from other tours try to listen in as Edwin explained how to spot the animals, especially sloths. Not much keeps a couple teenagers interested but our two were enthralled.

The tour was really amazing, we saw so many wild animals (e.g. sloths, snakes, frogs …). Also our tourguide Karen Castillo was super nice she spotted new animals like every second and explained a lot of interesting facts about them. Overall the tour was a great experience and was worth the money. We’d recommend doing a private tour because the guides are going to have a lot of more time for you, so it’s worth the ten dollars extra.

Edwin was a great guide! He was patient with my 6 year old son that had a lot of information to tell him about the animals. Edwin found animals we definitely would not have noticed had we not gotten a guide. He also has a telescope and a great phone to show you the animals and then will air drop you the photos. Their office and starting point was right next to the closest parking to the park. Do the 7 am tour and you won’t be disappointed. Stop for lunch at Donde Alex for some fresh ceviche.

We had a great wildlife tour with Edwin on Monday. Saw loads of animals, including a Fer de Lance snake which he managed to spot from a distance in spite of the considerable camouflage. Cheers, nick

Saul was very professional. I highly recommend this company. Enjoyed my experience very much and saw so many animals that I never would have seen on my own. Be careful of the many vendors before you get to the park who try to trick you into thinking that you have to stop and park there. They are extremely aggressive and would not move out from in front of my car, and almost made me late for my tour. Simply tell them you have a guide already and be assertive about it. The parking recommended by this company took great care of my car.

What a great experience. We saw many different species of wildlife and a great beach! Edwin is extremely knowledgeable and we wouldn't have seen 99% of the wildlife we saw without him. I highly recommend you book a tour with Edwin, you will not be disappointed.

I requested to book a tour with Edwin the day before the tour and he was very accommodating and responded quickly to making it happen for us. He helped us to purchase the tickets and organize the day at Manuel Antonio, removing the headache of planning from all of us so we could enjoy the day. Edwin was a fantastic nature tour guide for my private group of 3. He asked us what we have seen so far and what we would like to see. He was patient in searching, exploring, and explaining, and was always on the lookout for creatures of all sizes. He was easy and fun to talk to and made us all feel welcome and comfortable in the middle of the jungle. We were able to see sloths (even babies!), monkeys (again, baby monkeys too!), lizards, snakes, and lots of colourful birds and insects. Walking through the park, he educated us about all the habits of the animals and what to look for to find them. Edwin brought his telescope with iPhone adapter so he was able to help us take beautiful photos and then AirDrop them all to the whole group in an instant at the end of the tour. He knows how to get all the exactly perfect angles, creating a beautiful photo album for you. He also gave us very clear instructions on how to arrive and where to park as there are a lot of tour and parking scammers along the way that can easily trick you into thinking you're at the right place when you're not! If you're looking for a fun and authentic nature tour of Manuel Antonio, we all highly recommend Edwin for your tour!!!

Edwin was an extremely personable and knowledgeable guide. He found a huge range of birds, insects, reptiles and mammals (including a sloth with her baby) and airdropped photos and videos for as at the end of the tour; highly recommended.

My partner and I booked last minute the day before and Edwin was fast in response and accomodating. We had a lovely group of 6 and we were definitely a smaller group in comparison to most of the other tours around us. All of the instructions we received were clear ie meeting point and what to expect from the tour. Edwin was very professional but also real, he shared his expertise and knowledge in a fun and interesting way. We saw lots of different animals including monkeys, sloths (very lucky to see a baby sloth), insects and reptiles to name a few. We appreciated all of the images he captured for us and shared. For the price we felt it was very good value for money! Edwin really made our time in Manuel Antonio that extra bit special and I highly recommend his services. It was one of the best tours from our entire 4 months of traveling in Central America so far. You won't regret spending a day in his office!

Had a tour with Edwin and loved it. He shared a lot of facts with us and also found all the animals we never would have found (including a sloth) ... what more can you get. After the tour we spent time on the Playa Manuel Antonio, just great!
