First question from Omar, "What do you want learn on this trip?" And since Omar grew up in Manzanillo, he told us a little about everything that is relevant to the area as we hiked. Not only was he amazing at spotting wildlife and plants, we got to hear about the history of the area, the economy and issues facing... More

Omar is one of the best guides ever. We saw so many life birds. He could spot birds as well as the best birders I've ever seen. And he was so concerned that each one of us saw the bird. I recommend Omar for one of your best birding experiences ever.

Without a doubt, our trip into the jungle was a "5" rating! Omar was an excellent guide - he could spot a viper, sloths, monkeys, and frogs like an eagle! His knowledge, love for nature, stories and sense of humor added so much. He cared about our personal safety and went out of his way to make this a great... More

I am ever so grateful that our hostess booked a tour with Omar! He is funny, warm, and a fountain of knowledge when it comes to the natural world of his hometown. His passion to share and preserve this amazing place is contagious. He has a knack for finding animals hidden from untrained eyes, and always finds something interesting to... More

He had great stories about the things we encountered on our walk and we especially enjoyed his jokes. I was amazed by his ability to find creatures of all sizes hiding in the trees and on... More

We did the 4 hour jungle tour with Omar and it was the highlight of the trip. He is a true naturalist and is extremely knowledgeable with regards to plant and animal life. We not only enjoyed learning about the area, plants, and animals but enjoyed his company and spirit more than anything.

I have been on two jungle tours with Bucus Tours--one with a group of 6, and one with just my son and I. Both were excellent, and Omar does a great job of tailoring the tour to your interests, from animals to the plants and trees (and palms!). He seems to know everything about the natural environment and also connects... More
