Going into a jungle at night will give you a chance to see the animals in a new environment. Many jungle creatures are only active at night and this is the only way to experience them. You will see mammals that never make appearances during day treks. Your guide will point out tarantulas and sleeping birds. The symphony of insects and frogs will be your soundtrack. The tour lasts two hours for 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
The Curi Cancha Park is a small environmentally conscious park. They limit their guest numbers to under 50 people a day to ensure that the wild life remains protected and beautiful for their guests. The park is home to trails you may explore on your own during the day. While wandering through the trees be sure to look out for the 200 species of bird who call this forest home. You may also come across armadillo, coati, agouti, kinkajou, ocelot, two-toed sloth and three different species of monkey.

Jorge was a great tour guide - he was very knowledgeable and passionate about the wildlife we saw, plus he had great stories and photos from his many hours exploring Costa Rica's forests. He was very helpful with taking pictures of the animals we saw through his scope. Although transportation was not included in this tour, we were able to walk to and from the tour without any problems (PS - bring a flashlight).
Excellent experience. Saw an armadillo which was unexpected! Loved seeing the "click bug" with it's glowing eyes and the scorpions in the black light. Our guide was really great. Beautiful and scary - I would not recommend this for young kids as it's a long hike in the dark.
It's difficult for a guide to call up the animals at night. We got to experience some of expected nocturnal inhabitants - tarantula, viper, and scorpion (who was lit by UV). Big surprise was the kinkajou with a big piece of fruit in its mouth. It was a beautiful moonlit walk. We had to arrange our own transportation. Ride there was fine, but we realized that we didn't have local phone access to call taxi after, so our guide did that for us, thankfully.
If you loved tree climbing as a kid, then get ready to reach now heights on your next vacation. Explore the Costa Rican jungle after dark on this fun and unique tour that takes you 131 feet up into the forest canopy. You'll feel like a pro again even if it's been years since you went on an outdoor adventure, because you'll have access to equipment to make the climb easier — something you definitely didn't have when you used to scale freehand!
