Private Night Walk

Avoid the crowds!

Overview

 Overview

If you are looking for a fun activity for kids and adults alike, you will definitely enjoy a night tour. Many mammals, birds and insects behave differently at night, and there are always wonderful surprises in store, like sleeping birds, nocturnal mammals, and lots of interesting bugs. Your guide will lead you on a safe walk through well-kept trails. Night tours are so popular that a private tour is really the only way to go to avoid the crowds and have your guide’s full attention. We look forward to hosting you!

What are the clients saying about this tour?

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

We took 2 tours with Marcos, hanging bridges and a night tour. Both of these were amazing. Marcos was informative, fun and was the best guide we had throughout our visit to Costa Rica. He dropped us off at a local restaurant that he recommended, and helped us order before leaving. He is a must use if in Monteverde.

We did a morning tour of Monteverde, afternoon tour of Santa Elena and a Night Tour at Santamaria’s and we saw lots of birds, including the resplendent quetzal, spider monkeys, a barred forest falcon, humming birds, a sloth, owls, a tarantula (!) and a snake. Both Marcos and Ormond were incredibly knowledgeable and happy to talk about Costa Rica, the flowers, fauna, wildlife and environment. We arranged a bespoke day of private tours in advance as we had limited time in Monteverde, and we didn’t want to be surrounded with crowds so we could have as natural experience as possible. We are very pleased with choosing Pasión Costa Rica – Marcos and team are some of the best guides you can get – you won’t regret it.

We went on a night walk at the Santamaria, where Marcos was amazing in finding and pointing out loads of animals, including tarantula, green snake and a sloth. He also took some amazing pictures using our phone via his telescope. He was very knowledgeable and was able to answer our questions. Communication with Susu in organising our trip was extremely easy.
