Amazing tour!! Freddy has a good eye for all the animals and knows exactly where to look. I enjoyed his stories and knowledge on everything throughout the jungle! I had one of the best times here.

Tha great was a great experience. Freddy's expertise made it interesting and fun. I really enjoyed learning so much about the animals. Seeing the sloths up close was the highlight. The walk was a nice easy pace.

A very beautiful area where Freddy was able to spot out many insects and animals. We learned lots about the work insects do to keep the forest alive and healthy. Also bare in mind you may not always see animals the way you want. We saw monkeys, wild pigs, coatis, and some birds, but that is up to nature and not Freddy. You can’t control animals in their own habitat, but Freddy does have a good eye and ear for those willing to go on the trails with him.

Freddy is the absolute best!!! He is an animal whisperer. We saw a three toed sloth wide awake, lots of monkeys eating breakfast, toucans, and so many other beautiful animals. Because Freddy grew up at Hacienda Baru, he knows where to take you and he can spot animals better than anyone I’ve ever met. He genuinely loves what he does and he’s an amazing tour guide. He answered all of my questions, he helped me take incredible pictures and videos, and he treated me like anyone would treat a good friend. I can’t recommend this tour with Freddy enough!! It was the greatest time I had in Costa Rica so far. I’m in awe and so grateful to Freddy! You will not regret booking this tour!!

This experience was a fantastic opportunity to see the wildlife and foliage through the eyes of an expert. Freddy had amazing ability to locate animals and tell the stories regarding their habitat or how the plants and animals work together to provide what is needed. His sense of humor was very refreshing. Would recommend this experience to anyone.

Really awesome, Freddy is SO good at spotting animals hiding from you. We saw wild pigs, three sloths, monkeys, lots of birds, butterflies, insects. Keep in mind that whether or not nature reveals itself to you is still a matter of luck and nobody has control over what you may or may not see that day.
