    JP was an excellent tour guide! He’s very knowledgeable and passionate about wildlife. He is really good at spotting sloths. I highly recommend this tour! It’s a pretty easy hike and there’s lots of wildlife to see.

    J.P. was a pleasure to meet. He shared plenty of great thoughts and was fun. Patience always pays off and it showed on our visit with great views of many sloths. Pura Vida.

    From the moment he picked us up, our guide JP was warm, friendly and welcoming. His knowledge of the the area, the wildlife, and culture was extraordinary. He remained determined throughout the entire tour to find as many animals - sloths, birds, reptiles, and event ants - and teach us as much as possible about them. This was one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences of our trip. Highly recommended!

    Our guide Norman was fantastic! I am so glad we opted for a guided tour or we likely would have never seen the sloths. We saw two sloths during our tour and so much other wildlife! He brought a scope with him which helped a lot and pointed out all sorts of vegetation, birds, frogs, and other creatures. We did a few tours with Jacamar and all of them were professional, friendly, full of knowledge and punctual.

    Our guide Walter was exceptional! He found some wonderful critters and had a deep understanding of Costa Rican wildlife.

    Julio "Iglesias" Mendez was the perfect guide. Halfway to our destination trail, Julio pulled over as he saw a sloth and her baby in a tree clear as day, so we pulled out the telescope, took pictures and all had a good cry all before we even got to the beginning of our adventure. The park trail was very nicely laid out with what seemed to be different arboreal moments throughout. The trails are all basically the same, with your ability to see 1 or 10 sloths along the way effectively subject to chance. I think the real quality in this trip was Julio, himself. He knows his Costa Rican wildlife. Top down and bottom up. He seems to be the kid that grew up playing with all of this these animals while skipping grade school in addition to being academically trained in the flora and fauna of Costa Rica. The slothless moments of the hike were filled with Julio calling out to and listening for various birds, frogs, etc. And it paid off, we found a green and black poison arrow frog under a log just off the beaten path that he found with his ears. There was ample animal-watching and subsequent conversation about the smallest of details regarding each bird, owl, squirrel, sloth and vulture whose path we were fortunate to cross. Highly recommend this outfit!

    Amazing guide! Knowledgeable, friendly, and great personality. He knew what and who to look for on this tour. By merely paying a fee and touring on own, you will not see the amazing birds, sloths and animals with near the frequency. Get a guide for this tour: the best way to see the sloths in their own habitat.

    Our tour guide Diego had amazing knowledge of the wildlife and area. On our way to the river, he spotted a sloth in a tree and stopped so we could take pictures through his binoculars. It was one of the best sloth sightings our entire time in Costa Rica! This was truly a wonderful experience.

    Our guide Deigo was awesome. He was very knowledgeable. We saw several sloths as well as other animals and plants. Definitely worth the money if you want a guaranteed sloth sighting
