There are many excellent birders in Costa Rica, not as many excellent bird guides, and few guides that understand bird photography. Johan is that rare combination of excellence in all of these areas. My photographer friend and I had visited Costa Rica many times and had a few species that we wanted to target. Johan put us in position to photograph all of our target species which included: Three-wattled Bellbirds, Long-tailed Manakins, King Vultures, Golden-browed Chlorophonia, and Resplendent Quetzal. We traveled from San Jose to Monteverde, La Fortuna, Santa Rita, Chilamate area, and San Gerardo de Dota. We stayed at nice local family run lodges, ate great food, and had a wonderful birding/photography experience. Johan does his homework, has great connections all over Costa Rica, is knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, flexible, patient, and if you want to see a "brown dog", he will find you a "brown dog". Johan has my highest recommendation without any reservation. He also does birding tours outside of Costa Rica.

Just spent two weeks birding Costa Rica with Johan Fernandez, the best guide I've had. We identified over 360 species and got twelve of the fifteen most sought after birds in CR. Johan had everything mapped out from transportation to food to lodging and the very best birding sites. You can't go wrong with Johan Fernandez.

Johan is knowledgeable, patient and personable. He was very punctual picking us up early in the morning at a hotel that was quite off the beaten path. We spent about 5 hours birding with him in two different habitats around Quepos. It was fun, and he can definitely tailor his message to speak to both advanced birders and neophytes. We had fun, and it was one of the best value tours we took in Costa Rica. Highly recommended!

Looking for an experience of a lifetime in Costa Rica? Do you like birds, wildlife, nature and relaxation? Costa Rica Expeditions is the ultimate! You don't have to think about what's your next adventure or how to arrive? what time to arrive? and where to dine. My husband and I spoke to an agent personally (Priscilla) and she asked us what we wanted to do in CR and what we wanted to see. Everything was planned for us..they led and we followed. We started in Tortuguera and then to Monteverdi and lastly in Manuel Antonio. Our guides were always waiting for us and most of the time we had private tours. The dining was the best we ever experienced and the lodging was superb. As you can read, I cannot say enough good things about Costa Rica Expeditions.

We booked Johan online, having never met him before, so we were pleased to see him waiting for us at the airport, though our flight arrived early! The hotels he had booked for our 6 night trip were all lovely, and he handled all the business side of things without us having to worry about anything. He was a knowledgeable guide, who was very keen to make sure we saw lots of species, despite the unseasonal rain. We had a lot of fun, and saw some amazing birds. Highly recommended.
