Manuel's Tours


I’m a Naturalist Guide and a Professional Photographer with 12 years of experience working in the National Parks of Costa Rica. I’ve taken extensive training in a variety of subjects that allow me to offer top rate educational tours in Manuel Antonio and beyond. I am certified by the Costa Rica Board of Tourism and hold several certificates in tourism and biological science. My guides and I have spent numerous hours in tropical rainforests across the Central American region.

My experience with Manuel's Tours was educational and refreshing in comparison to other Costa Rica tours I have taken. The guides are experts and present their clients with an exciting experience.

To develop my tours in Manuel Antonio Park in the most ethical and professional way, I prefer working with small groups and enthusiastic people, as that affords me to the opportunity to learn and discover as well. I enjoy meeting people from around the world who want to study the fantastic world of nature that surrounds us here in Costa Rica.

I’m am an avid surfer as Manuel Antonio is located on one of the most beautiful beaches known for suring in South, Costa Rica and I am a representative of LimeCoral Apparel Company, which specializes in custom designed, cultural and green friendly surf apparel. I am an active participant in the OTS (Organization for Tropical Studies) yearly bird count.

Trip Advisor Review

"Best licensed park guide is Manuel Cabalceta Mendez. He is an extremely intelligent & knowledgable guide. We had an incredible tour and saw so much! Manuel sets up his scope quickly/professtionally and we captured incredible photos.

Manuel also recommended a perfect restaurant with a spectacular view of the ocean after our tour. It was the best day of our vacation!" jstewart7725

My passion and quest for further knowledge has taken me through the entire Central American region to parks, museums, exhibits, indigenous tribe areas, private natural reserves and a multitude of protected areas. I am extremely fortunate to live in a country where eco-tourism is the biggest industry and conservation our number one priority. This pride in my country inspired me to contribute to the cause and I enjoy studying the natural history of Costa Rica.
