Juan Carlos was our bird photography guide for three days in March, 2015. We would not have had such a wonderful experience without him. He birded with us in Arenal, drove us to Sarapiqui and birded with us there the next day. Not only is he an expert birder and is very knowledgeable about birding sites all over Costa Rica but he was fabulous in helping me become a better photographer. Although I am an experienced bird photographer, the neo-tropical forests present very demanding conditions, particularly about the light. Juan Carlos deeply understands how to get the most out of any conditions. In addition, he is a lovely and responsible person. My wife and I would recommend him to everyone. If you are interested in bird photography in Costa Rica, I would call him first, create a trip plan, and then let him do the bookings. You will not only save money, but you will be at the right hotels in the right areas according to your interests.
