Best bird tour ever with Aaron. Saw over 20 species and he provided photos and videos of all via Air Drop. The breakfast was tasty and we enjoyed interacting with other birders.

I really enjoyed learning about bird watching with Jose Pablo (JP) - JP met me promptly at the entrance to the lodge and within a five minute drive of arenal oasis we situated ourselves in open patch of land and found so many species of birds!! JP has a magic eye and so many years of experience -- I learned alot and this experience has inspired me to carry binoculars everywhere now . I was amazed how he can spot birds at such a distance ! We even saw a rare woodpecker, one of the smallest in costa rica. He explained things to me with such patience in a way that was really interesting! JP also sent me the list of 30+ bird species we saw and I appreciated that he checked with me multiple times after to ensure I got it loaded into EBird . JP's passion for birds and the outdoors was contagious ( Separately, I also really enjoyed his red eyed tree frog tour! ) This bird watching tour was well worth getting up for at 5am , do it if you get the chance! JP was one of the best tour guides from my whole trip. Thank you JP!

I try to come here at least once a year as an escape from the heat of the beach. The cool mountain air, the quaint cabins, wildlife and food make for a fun and relaxing combination. This year was just as I remembered but to me the cabins were better with new appliances and sheets and the food was delicious; even more than I recalled. Nearby adventures await and they can arrange all or none. Even has a price list for a nearby spa for a massage. The delightful, knowledgeable staff keep things running smoothly.

The very early start was well worth it and Andres our guide was great. We saw so many different species of birds and he took some amazing photos for us through his telescope. We even saw a mangrove cuckoo which he said he had never seen before! We stayed at the Arenal Oasis for three nights and did the night time frog watching tour which is also on their reserve and was superb as well.

Fue una experiencia fabulosa. El lugar es accesible y el recorrido es muy fácil de hacer. Pablo, nuestro guía es un gran conocedor de las aves y donde encontrarlas. Vimos muchas variedades de aves, perezosos y monos.
