I'll walk with you all the time, help you to get the best of the place, find and watch most of the birds and I don't mind to take pictures for you.

I'm very personable and like to shareall my knowledge about my country and recomendations, so we will have fun on the ride.

Photo stops are allowed on the way back, we can watch the ocean close to barú, visit playa blanca (extra charge) or even have a short briefing about historical places in Cartagena.

At the end of the tour you'll feel you know much more about Colombian Culture and nature and I'm sure you'll want to recommend us!

This experience was simply the best. Jose was well-prepared, kind, funny, punctual. A thoughtful and expert host, it was an experience I won't forget and I hope to do it again in the future! The place is breathtaking, we got to see a lot of different species and hung out with some of them too! Really, if you are thinking about it, just do it. Highlight of my trip to Cartagena. Also the lunch was amazing and there's plenty of options. Just do it.

Great way to get out of Cartagena and see new things. A kind guide, safe driver, clearly loves what he does. Highly recommended!

Probably my favourite day in Cartagena. The aviary was amazing but the best part was getting to know about history and current situation in Colombia. I really recommend taking this trip while you are here!

This was a great experience! Jose was very knowledgable about the wildlife and his passion for the birds in the aviary shined though at every moment. He even has a few bird friends who are clearly fond of him and will come right up to the group looking for attention! The restaurant he took us to was also delicious! Overall a wonderful experience that I would recommend to friends and family.

Jose was the best person I could have asked for to guide us through this experience. Not only did he make the experience fun and informative, he also made my boyfriend and I feel like we had made new friends on our adventure. Lots of laughs, beautiful bird sightings, and good company were had. Also, the lunch we were provided with was superb! I highly recommend taking this trip. You never know who you’ll meet along the way.

Jose provided a wonderful experience at the National Aviary of Colombia in Barú, just outside Cartagena. From the timely pick-up in the morning to the expert information provided along the way and in the Aviary, it was beautiful day of birds, good companionship and fabulous food at Reynatos, a local gem of a fish restaurant. It is clear that Jose both knows and loves wildlife and nature and is committed to furnishing his guests with a world-class experience.
