Tour: #162663, Puntarenas-Carara rain-forest wildlife watching, Puntarenas, Puntarenas, Costa Rica    view tour
Date: Apr 15/18

Henry was very knowledgeable and very good at spotting the wildlife in Carrara National Park. He conducted our 3 mile walk at a nice slow pace in very hot humid weather. He went to some trouble to try and find the macaws but no luck. His binoculars and spotting scope were good. The paths are relatively gentle with some steps. En route we stopped at the Tarcoles bridge to see the crocodiles and he chose a quiet spot away from the coach tours.

I give this tour and Henry both 5 stars! My 17 year old daughter and I very much enjoyed our tour with Henry. We learned so much about Costa Rica in general, the wildlife, and all the unique trees and flowers in the area. Henry was knowledgeable and very accommodating. When my daughter mentioned that she wanted to try coconut milk, he even made sure we stopped for a fresh pipa on the way back from the tour. I highly recommend Henry as a guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you my friends, the Pipa was so good!! Henry

Our guide was terrific. He was able to spot things we would never have seen on our own. He also took us to eat an authentic meal for lunch and we got to try foods we would not normally have eaten. Delicious. He was also very helpful and accommodating when it came to my mobility issues.

This was our third tour with Henry. Having used Henry for a tour with just me and my husband as well as for our family (boys 5 and 8) I can say he is able to design fun days that will engage any age group. This is a great way to experience the "real" Costa Rica and learn about the nature and people of this beautiful country. I highly recommend Henry!

Henry is an excellent guide who suggested destinations based on our initial communication and then adjusted during the day as he noticed our interests. Our day included an ecocenter, waterfall hike, lunch with wildlife, scenic drive and more wildlife, just what we wanted! Henry is extremely knowledgeable about the plants and animals, spotted things we never would have seen & was responsive to our questions about Costa Rica's culture and government. Denny was an excellent driver and very friendly, too.

Importantly, Henry was most communicative prior to the tour. He took our needs and wishes into consideration to plan a first -rate customized tour of Guanacaste tropical forest and cloud forest areas. A keen observer, Henry brought to our attention many not-so-obvious animals and vegetation. All of this in a friendly, conversant manner. He noted that he was raised in Guanacaste and earned his degree in ecology from the University of Costa Rica.

Henry gave me the most wonderful and exciting tour. He is very knowledgeable of the ecology of the area, able to spot birds and other animal, and tell me about the plants. He and his brother, who drove very carefully, took me for a walk in a park which had many animals, frogs, insects, birds and sloths. We even got to be within nearly a hands reach of a climbing female sloth. His brother held my mobile camera and took great photos for my memories.

We very much enjoyed our day-long tour with Henry and his driver Marco en route from Puntarenas to San Jose. Henry's commentary was interesting and informative as we drove towards the Carara Rainforest and he was diligent in helping us view and identify the wildlife there. Afterwards he took us to an unusual local restaurant (Marta's kitchen) on a hilltop near Jaco which was a real highlight and which we definitely would not have found ourselves. This is what I hoped for when booking with "tourbylocals".

I am so thankful that I decided to use ToursByLocals for a private tour in Costa Rica. Our guide, Henry, has a degree in Ecology and another one in education. If he had not been with us, we would have walked by a large majority of animals without even noticing. Fortunately, Henry was there to point out different species of monkeys, sloths, and other animals. He is super knowledgeable about the animals and plants in the rainforest. Not only was he knowledgeable, he was also friendly and easy-going.

My family of four got a private tour to Baldi Springs and Sky Trek zipline both near Arenal volcano. Our guide Henry was very helpful and knowledgeable. his brother who did the driving was careful and smooth. Baldi is absolutely amazing and so was sky trek. We would have liked to have more time to do a hike around the volcano but as it was we started early and got back late so understandable. Kids under 7 cant do sky trek so keep that in mind. Baldi very kid friendly. Thank you Henry!

This was a fabulous tour. Henry was an expert in all aspects of the rainforest sites we visited. He had an "eagle eye" to spot even the tiniest animals that were available. He know of all the important aspects of the plant and animal species to show us. He went out of his way to find us the best possible experience and truly immersed us into the natural experience that Costa Rica had to offer. He was also very personable, positive, and enthusiastic. I would highly recommend his trip to anybody.

Five stars is not enough..... Henry is truly a nature-lover and his honest excitement showing us the flora and fauna of Costa Rica was infectious. From walking across the swinging bridges, a rare sighting of a yellow-eared toucanet, and watching the never ending line of activity of leaf-cutter ants, the rainforest was a fabulous experience. Lunch at a B&B hit the spot; the local cuisine was delicious. Ending with a visit to the sloth sanctuary was the perfect finish. HENRY IS A TRUE PROFESSIONAL!!

Henry was great. We highly recommend him. Great communication via email and verbally. Our family (5 total) went on a zip lining and tubing trip. We were supposed to also visit a volcano along with the hot water springs and mud baths. However, the typical Rain Forest rains washed out that part. Rather than end our day early, Henry willingly took us through Cocoa Beach so our sons could buy some things. He is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable of Costa Rica. We highly recommend him.

Had a lovely day with Henry and his brother Dennis. Picked us up in Playa Flaming and we drove about 2 hours to cloud forest located near the Turriaba volcano. We were so lucky with a beautiful sunny day. Saw sloths, anteater, Howler Monkeys. Pretty strenuous hike for me. Lots of up and down climbing, because one of the hanging bridges was out of use. But I survived. The hanging bridges are a pretty neat experience! Went to a sustainable farm for lunch, Nice easy hike with sloth, toucan, birds.

Henry has been an amazing guide to us and took us to some great places that we would have not seen on our own. His wildlife knowledge was a great bonus too, since the main purpose of our visit was to picture wildlife. I'm certain that if we went to the same places but without Henry we would have not noticed even half of the animals we did with him pointing them out. We also really appreciated how flexible and understanding he has been when we had to partially change our itinerary. Highly recommended!

Henry was exceptional! Very knowledgeable and informative of riches of Costa Rica and her history. Our 4th trip to CR and first time using TBL's in this country, worth every penny! Using TBL's is the only way to truly grasp the culture. You have your own personal concierge who provides as little or much detail as you want. Henry was incredible finding the toucans, the two and three toe sloth, monkey's, etc. Spotted a anteater in a tree, while cruising down the road, backed up, got out and enjoyed!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for enjoying, and letting me be part of this adventure! PD we had a great time sharing the super hot jerked beef that you gave to us, everybody in my family was amazed, and wanted to have the recipe!!! Pura Vida... Henry

I used Henry for 4 tours during the time we spent in Guanacaste. I was traveling w my 2 kids 14 and 9. He was a very good tour guide generally. He had a large 4 door SUV which was comfortable both on road and off. Specifically he is exceptional for the bird watching and nature activities. His knowledge of the flora and fauna is that of a trained naturalist. He is also able to spot animals from very far away. I saw more birds and wildlife in our two nature days than you would in a day at the zoo.

Henry was very personable, but not ask our input or direction on what to see. The choices in Costa Rica are essentially going to a National Park and Henry chose one, Monteverde Cloud Reserve, that was over two hours away by van. The access road to the park was unpaved for the last several miles, so the trip was very rough. We only had an hour or so in the park, so we all felt there was too much travel time and too little sightseeing. His botony skills in the rain forest were excellent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello dear amigos! thank you for your comments! We are very lucky to have Monteverde, one of the best places on earth for wildlife watching of all sort, due to the conservation efforts and high biodiversity in the area! I picked this place, since it was the closest to Puntarenas, among the two options you wanted!, I provide all the details in advance! I am sorry that, there were men at work on the road the day of our tour that delay us! Next time the whole road will be paved!! Pura vida Henry

Guide did not meet the ship. We had to pay for a taxi to meet him. He was not prepared with water and snacks. Also did not realize he was supposed to pay for entrance to parks which our confirmation stated.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I met the customers outside the port at the visitors center because we are not allowed inside, the taxi was paid by me. I did provide snacks but they were rejected by the customers. This review is from 7 months ago and the customer only just posted their comments and unfortunately I do not recall much more about this case. Sorry if you were not happy but I believe you did not read the full tour description as it outlines the costs, etc.

Henry's knowledge of the trees and flowers was encyclopedic! Then to a fabulous lunch. Finally a visit to the National Theater in San Jose City. Amazingly beautiful. Architecture as fine as any place in Europe. The only slight minus was the amount of time in the van. It was air conditioned and comfortable, but we spent a lot of time in it.

Henry met us at the cruise dock and we drove 2 hours to the Tenorio Rain Forest near Bijague. The walk through the Heliconias rain forest and hanging bridges (3 of them) required mild exertion (we were a group of 8 senior citizens). It is warm and muggy, and watch your step. The foliage is beautiful but didn't see many animals (only monkeys). Henry is very informative and was talking all the time what we were seeing. Lunch at the Casitas Tenorio B&B was fabulous, and the hosts are great.

We enjoyed Henry so much, and learned so much about the area, that we wanted to see yet another area through his eyes. Once again, he is very prompt on arrival and had the day planned out. We were able to see the howling monkeys. This was particularly impressive because as we passed guided groups who passed the same areas we did, they had not seen them. It takes a keen eye but also a vast knowledge of the habitat. Henry is amazing and we actually cancelled another trip to spend another day with him.

His ability to spot birds and other wildlife amidst all the vegetation and shade is uncanny. He even showed us an ancient petroglyph that was a few steps away from a busy road (not in the park), the sort of off-the-beaten-path bonus that you can't get on a typical group tour. Highly recommended!
