Very knowledgeable and fun. Great for families and adults. These folks are really good with people, and really know how to get kids excited about nature. I watched some of the other night tours in the area and this is likely the best one.

We took our three daughters (ages 10, 12, and 14) on the bug tour during our stay at La Paloma Lodge. It was spectacular! Traci was so informative, and our children are still talking about all they learned. This is a MUST!!!! It is fascinating!!!!

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
