BOOK EUGENE at XPLORE!!!!!!
Mar 2021
EUGENE IS AMAZING!!!! We traveled to Costa Rica with three families primarily for teenage boys to surf. Our property manager recommended Xplore and we are thrilled she did. Eugene is clearly an expert but more importantly he has such love and respect for his beautiful country. It is isn't easy to hold the attention of teenagers and yet young and old alike crowded around Eugene as he taught us about the river, monkeys, birds and reptiles. We loved him so much we added a second day zip lining and rafting. He's a national treasure and should be a part of any trip to CR. We will definitely plan an Xplore tour with him when we go back.

Our guide, Eugene was PHENOMENAL. He had a vast knowledge of the park and the areas en route to the park. We saw tons of crocodiles, capuchin monkeys, birds. and howler monkeys in their natural habitats. A truly incredible experience! 5 stars to Xplore Costa Rica Tours & to Eugene.

Fun boat tour with knowledgeable guide
Our guide Eugene was fun, found us lots of birds and crocodiles, and knew his wildlife really well. The business owner Denise was a great communicator in setting up the trip. Our family, including an 11 and a 13-year-old, all enjoyed ourselves. The boat was comfortable and the driver was great at maneuvering in close to see wildlife. The lunch was good and the ceramics demo, while probably not of keen interest to everyone, was well done and seemed sincere. Two thumbs up! 👍🏽👍🏽

Very worthwhile excursion
Very nice boat excursion out of Tamarindo. Boat captain and guide had super powers spotting wildlife. You get a very nice lunch at Rancho de Coyotes with demo of traditional pottery making. 90 minute drive from Tamarindo shows a lot of the bucolic countryside.

Excellent tour
Dec 2019
Eugene was the best guide. He was great with the kids and we saw lots of birds, bats,monkeys, iguana and crocodiles. We saw most of the birds unique to Costa Rica which was great. The female and Male iguanas were on the same trees so we saw the differences between them. Eugene made sure the kids got to see everything and relates well to kids and understands their needs and interests. Kids were ages 6-11.

So many Monkeys!
We first spotted a few Howler Monkeys in a tree but they were not very close. Also seen a few crocodiles and iguanas. Not to many birds that were interesting. We turned around and went down stream where we seen lots of white face monkeys. We had one big daddy jump down from a tree right in front of our boat, that was awesome.The river is brown and dirty but was very enjoyable to see those monkeys in the wild.
