Don Rodolfo Night Tour Overview 

Don Rodolfo Night Tour is a light 2-hour walk in search of the creatures of the night, recommended to anyone who wants to see sleeping birds and a wide variety of insects.

Animals in Monteverde, Costa Rica, are more active and prominent during the nighttime when they come out searching for food and shelter, so you will have many more chances to see them on a night tour. 

Don Rodolfo Night Tour focuses on conservation, which is why they only handle one or two small groups of six or fewer people per night. Therefore, Don Rodolfo Night Tour is the least touristy night tour in the area and has more occasional wildlife reports. Most of the wildlife that you will spot will be in the form of insects. 

You will join a group of four to six people, with a local tour guide who will give you an introduction and flashlights before starting the walk on the trails of Don Rodolfo. Spots are minimal, so you need to book in advance.

Restrictions: Don Rodolfo Night Tour is not wheelchair accessible, and it is not suitable for kids under the age of 5.
