We took a tour of Manuel Antonio national park today with Aguila Tours. Unfortunately with the park closed on Monday's, and this being the high season, there was an exceptionally large lineup to get into the park. It was sweltering hot waiting in the line to get into the park with our guide but at least they provided us each... More

While there is no guarantee as to what you will see, the guides are great at spotting animals and they really know what they are talking about. Juan took us on a kayak tour of the mangrove forest at Damas Island in the morning. It was absolutely stunning and we got to see and interact with capuchin monkeys. We got... More

We did the Mangrove Boat Tour with Juan Brenes and had an amazing private boat tour. We saw an abundance of wildlife and Juan was extremely knowledgeable about the mangroves, the wildlife, and Costa Rican history. It is a very relaxing tour.

I had a friend recommend this company and I booked the Mangrove boat tour with Juan. He was prompt on email, which I really appreciated, and took my husband and I out on a great tour of the mangrove. We enjoyed the ride and Juan's expertise at spotting birds, iguanas, and even the smallest of anteaters who was sleeping way... More

This tour was highly recommended to me by my cousin, who visited the mangroves with Juan Brenes and thoroughly enjoyed the excursion. I used the same company to tour the Manuel Antonio National Park and enjoyed my experience with my tourguide, Pablo. These guys really know what they're doing, with hawkeyes that can spot so many amazing animals throughout the... More

We just got back to the states from a wonderful week in Quepos that would not have been the same without Juan and his advise on what to do / not do while visiting the beautiful pacific coast of CR.

My wife and I stayed in the Manuel Antonio region about a month ago, and contacted Aguila Tours for a kayaking trip through the mangroves. I called on the last day of our trip, and wasn't sure if anything would be available on such short notice. To my surprise (and delight!), Juan arranged for an evening tour with Edgar. Juan... More

We used Juan and his tour group to tour the Manual Antonio National Park. Pablo was our guide and he was funny, knowledgeable and good with kids. He found many great animals, birds and lizards. All enjoyed. Very punctual. Great transportation to and from hotel. Highly recommend. Thanks Juan! The Dotsons.
