Have you ever imagined your trip to beautiful Costa Rica being filled with exotic wildlife? Or dreamed of seeing animals you would never see in any other country? If so, this adventure is just for you! What makes this trip extra special is: it’s all at night! In Costa Rica, most of the wildlife species are active at night.

By taking this evening walk, your expert local nature guide will introduce you to a number of diverse species around a nature reserve owned by a local family of La Fortuna and the Arenal Oasis Eco Lodge & Wildlife Refuge. You will be able to see creatures such as the fer-de-lance snake, over 28 species of frog one being the red-eyed tree frog, many mammals such as the kinkajou, and several types of insects and nocturnal birds.

This is an amazing opportunity to get to know Costa Rica, its gorgeous landscapes, and its unique, one-of-a-kind wildlife.

I was born and raised in Costa Rica where I grew up in the rural area of Liberia. I was lucky to have grown up in Liberia, an area known for its vivid culture, zipline tours, and diverse natural wonders that only begin with its beautiful beaches, tropical dry forests, and volcanoes. In addition to the gorgeous environment I grew up in, I also constantly traveled to the far corners of Costa Rica with my family ever since I was a child. All of this has made me into the nature-loving person I am today! I love the outdoors, and even today I live near the Arenal Volcano and Monteverde. I love taking the time to observe nature, whether it is by birdwatching in the day or taking photos of frogs or snakes around my house in the evening. And of course, I love being able to explore nature with my job! My favorite part about being a tour guide is not only being immersed in nature but also being able to have the opportunity to meet new people and understand others’ ways of seeing the world.
