Sergio was the best
Carl_P, Aug 2023
Sergio was excellent and we had a fantastic tour. Would highly recommend to anyone in Monteverde as this was fab
Best tour I've ever had.

My holiday in Costa Rica was the best I've ever had, Curi-Cancha and Sergio stand out as the best tour and guide we had among many brilliant tours. Sergio spoke perfect English, above that he cared so dearly for the nature reserve. He explained he'd been attending there since school. We felt incredibly lucky to have seen a collared peccary. Seconds later we would witness a mother collared peccary feeding her young. You could see how happy and excited this made Sergio, it was a wonderful experience. Sergio had an excellent eye for the wildlife and took us down some quieter trails which made the experience more encapsulating. Sergio's care for the wildlife and the park came across very quickly. He had a great knowledge and was so open about his upbringing and how this had influenced his love for biodiversity, environmentalism and his job within this. Sergio explained that he had grown up in Monteverde, and that visits to the reserve during school were weekly, you could see how much Curi-Cancha meant to him. You couldn't have asked for a more immersive tour or a better tour guide. This tour stands out as my favourite. I cannot thank Sergio enough for this tour. It was excellent.

Somos una familia con 2 chicos (8 y 12 años). Nuestro guía Oscar fue muy atento.cinlos chicos, nos mostro muchas especies animales y vegetales, nos contó datos sobre la reserva y sobre la Costa Rica de ahora y de antes. Ah casi vimos un quetzal... si lo hubieramos visto hubiera sido perfecto. Vimos colibris, coatis, orquideas en miniatruara, arboles huecos, monos arañas, monos carablanca...
