Day & Night Combo

A perfect contrast!

Overview

 Overview

This combo is popular for a few reasons. First, the afternoon walk at the beautiful Monteverde trails takes place without the morning crowds, providing a very pleasant experience. And due to our temperate weather, an afternoon tour is just as great as a morning tour! Following the afternoon walk, you’ll have the opportunity to stop for a snack break at an authentic “tico” eatery. Finish out the evening with a night walk, and voila – a full Monteverde experience!

What are the clients saying about this tour?

Reviews in TripAvisor of 2020 tours to clients around the world!

Marcos shared his extensive range of knowledge with us with genuine passion and pleasure. He was very willing to answer questions. He was attentive and responsive to our questions and comments. Marcos pointed out plants, insects, reptiles, and wildlife that we would have not noticed without his keen observations. He personalized our evening hike and focused on our requests; Marcos ensured that my boyfriend was able to view snakes and that I was able to view sloths – based upon our verbalized preferences. It was truly a pleasure spending an afternoon and evening with Marcos.

Marcos is unique and if you get a chance to spend time with him in the forest you are very lucky. To spot on animals like the Quetzal, Hummingbird or Tarantula that you would never get to see in Europe or Northern America is already a great experience, especially if accompanied with the according background information. But Marcos sees beyond and draws a picture where others see dots and he tells stories, real life stories. With him the forest becomes alive. The day after the tour I saw Monteverde with different eyes as if the place had come closer to meWhat is passion? In the case of Marcos it shows as a deep-rooted love for creation, responsibility for the world as a whole and a great humor that makes life worth living. Thank you for this eye- and heart-opening experience! Pura vida!

This was one of the best guided tours we went in Costa Rica. Marcos is a very gifted guide. Not only does he seem to have a magical ability to spot the animals that appear invisible to us but he also has an in-depth knowledge of the local flora and fauna that he enthusiastically shares. For the day tour we went to Curi Cancha, where we saw many interesting birds (among which the quetzal) as well as local mammals. Afterwards, Marcos took us to a local soda (Sabortico) where he introduced us to delicious local dishes. Then we finished the day off with an enchanting evening tour. The booking process with Pasión Costa Rica was very smooth and professional.
