We really enjoyed our second tour day to the Sloth Farm, Volcán Tenorio the Río Celeste falls hike and el Arbol de la Paz! Thanks for the friendly and informed insights and conversations! And the safe and comforable driving and transport and pipas and roadside fruit bounty! Good wishes to you and your family, hope we can visit again :)

Henry was on time and his van was clean and comfortable. He was very knowledgeable and informative about the areas we visited and about his country as a whole. We enjoyed listening to him and asking questions-and his English is perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed the day!

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 is the Sloth Whisperer - We wanted to see wildlife on our tour and he delivered; sloths, porcupine, frogs, birds, etc. He was also extremely informative on the area, the history of the country, current events, and especially areas related to conservation, nature, and environment. He is a super nice guy, thoughtful and attentive to what you want to see and do, so you will really enjoy not only your tour but spending time with him. We will use him again on our next trip to Costa Rica!

Henry took our group of 4 to Rincón de la vieja and I cannot say enough great things about him and the amazing experience we had!! Henry is incredibly knowledgable, funny, laid back, and professional. He was prepared for everything! From a scope to bug spray to a laser pointer, he thought of every way possible to ensure we learned a lot and that we had the most enjoyable experience. Thank you, Henry, for being so flexible and for leaving us with memories to last a lifetime. Pura Vida ~

Henry did an excellent job of guiding our family of 6 for the day around the Rincon volcano. He was very knowledgeable and well informed. The tour was well planned and allowed for sufficient time to do all the activities we decided to do at the beginning of the tour. Highly recommend Henry together with his brother Daniel (who was our driver) for any future tour in the Guanacaste province.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello amigos, it was great to have you around, come back any time!

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are very welcome amigos! Gracias Henry

Henry arrived at the JW Marriott and was well prepared for a day of customized touring of volcanos, hot springs, and such. His knowledge of the plants and animals seen is impressive and he offers genuine Costa Rican hospitality. This was our second tour with Henry this week and our family of twelve enjoyed his tour and the educational aspect provided. We'd certainly tour with Henry again. He took extra time to explain to both adults as well as little people the Pura Vida of Costa Rica.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :) :) :) :) :) happy faces, wonderful experience will never forget!! Henry

Henry took our family of twelve on a Costa Rican fisherman's tour from the J.W. Marriott which we all enjoyed very much. The tour included a couple of "local" stops where we learned of a unique wine as well as learned of the local history of a couple of towns. Henry is very knowledgeable and created a unique tour for our family. If back in Costa Rica, we will tour with Henry again and certainly recommend others to do so.

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 led us through 2 days of touring in the Guanacaste and North Nicoya region. We had initially booked a 1 day tour with him, but we decided to add another day as we were very happy with our first day experience. Henry is trained in eco-tourism, and his experience comes through right off the bat. He is a very engaging and knowledgeable naturalist tour guide. Henry provides meaningful commentary on the ecology of the region and is a good spotter. We observed two toed sloths and more.

We were pleasantly surprised with our tour. I didn't think we would see all that we did. The tour of the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano was remarkable with a beautiful waterfall in the end. We headed for a fantastic lunch at the Hacienda hotel and had fun in the hot springs there. We stopped for coffee on the way back to hotel at a very fun place. Thank you Henry!

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

Great tour! Well worth the price. Henry was knowledgeable, professional and personable. He is a wealth of information on Costa Rican history as well as the fauna and flora. We did a group tour prior to this. Wish we had done this first so we could have taken two tours with Henry. Thanks Henry for a great time and wonderful tour!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Don David! By the way, the big lizard we saw displaying, is called Giant Banded Anole (Dactyloa insignis). Pura Vida

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We had a wonderful time as well! Best wishes

Henry really added value to our experience of Rincon de la Vieja National Park. He identifies all the plants, animals, insects etc. and knows the cultural and biological history. 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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm overwhelmed, thank you so much amigos!!

We had an amazing tour with Henry. He was very knowledgable and accommodating. The tour ran longer than scheduled, but we never felt rushed by Henry - his main concern was that we got the most out of our tour and that we enjoyed ourselves. His driver was also very professional and we felt safe at all times. I would highly recommend Henry as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ken!, it was amazing our timing to get to see the eruption at the Poas Volcano crater that fantastic february afternoon! People is still talking about it, in the news they show the video, since it seems to be an event that happens not very often along the year!... BG Henry
