I have always loved insects, arachnids, and anything creepy and crawly. This tour satisfied all of that and more! Tracie and Gian work so well together and it's amazing how they find these creatures in the dark. The trap door spiders were probably my favorite....More

Tracie and Gian know where the animals are. They'll teach YOU how to find them, too! What did we see? Geez: about five kinds of frogs, trapdoor spiders, net-casting spider, tarantulas, scorpions, bats, walking stick, porcupines, even a kinkajou! I've never seen so many animals...More

Amazing sights to see at night. Your guides know more than a lifetime full of information about the endless array of sights to see in the night jungle. From amazing frogs to spiders you'll never see anywhere else. A once in a lifetime experience.

Hello, unfortunately we do not offer the Night Tour from Puerto Jiménez. Because of logistics we can only offer the tour to guests lodging in Drake Bay near the town of Agujitas. Thanks again for your inquiry
