Tours and Tickets by Oropopo Experience
Overview
We love to run this Experience since it feels like taking family friends on a Day Trip.

The roads and route we choose let us showcase the countryside of Cartago Province, and the families and communities that live around this 2 beautiful volcanoes.

The cool climate contrast with the warm and traditional people that inhabits these multicolored farmlands.

AS AN EXTRA DESTINATION OF THE TOUR WE CAN:

a) visit the "coffee country" of Aquiares Town and farms

or

b) visit the Basilica Of The Angels, the most important church in downtown Cartago.

Other additional stops can be done, but we don´t want to give too many spoilers;)

We had a fantastic time with Marcelo. Not only did we see all the animals expected (birds, sloths, even leaf-cutter ants), but Marcelo went out of his way to provide interesting explanations and equipment to make sure we got the most out of our experience (binoculars and telescope). We were delighted with our experience and definitely recommend it as one of the best things to do in San Jose!

One of the best trips I have been to! We went to Corcovado, a national park filled with all different types of adventures and wildlife. Our tour guide, Marcelo, made the journey even better. I learned so much about all the different types of plants and animals as we saw them throughout the way. If you want an outstanding experience, filled with knowledge, adventure and nature, you should definitively go for the Oropopo Experience! 100% recommend

While visiting Corcovado -one of the world's most biological intense places-, it's fundamental to be accompanied by a guide gifted with senses that are in tune with it's natural surroundings, and the knowledge to interpret the natural history of the place in a way that is both captivating and and endearing. Marcelo of Oropopo Experiences offered just that, his background in biology and passion for the natural world allowed him not only to spot and showcase the most elusive creatures of the lush tropical forest, but also to dwell into the complex roles that each individual plays in the ecosystem. Corcovado it's a life-changing experience that reminds you about the immense beauty contained in this fragile world, and there's no better way to appreciate that beauty, than with a person who's eternally fascinated by it like Marcelo.

We did a custom three day trek in the jungles of the Osa Peninsula with Marcelo of Oropopo. It was a once in a lifetime experience. I love birds and Marcelo was so knowledgeable and seemed to get as excited as I did about spotting a cool bird. During our time in Osa we saw 51 unique bird species, all 4 monkey species found in Costa Rica, plus lots of other cool animals. Marchelo guided us safely so we could spend our time enjoying the amazing and intense jungle. Highly recommended!
