Jacamar Naturalist Tours is a Costa Rican company dedicated to promote and operate different tourist services in Costa Rica, such as tours or excursions, guiding group services, transportation, specialized lectures and other related services.
Our headquarters are located in La Fortuna de San Carlos, North Guanacaste, and Jaco but we also count with satellite offices in some other regions of the country.
Our main costumers are agencies and hotels around the country. The goal of JNT is to offer a personalized service of high quality, where we inmerse our clients in memorable experiences where besides enjoy, we build up awareness about the conservation of natural resources.
Our company has been dedicated since its inception to teach the natural wonders of our country; and always trying to provide valuable information to our costumes, about the natural history of every plant and animal that we see on our tours. But over time we have been given the task of showing a little more about our culture and how Costa Ricans live and work, especially in rural areas, where it is listed that life is a little quieter, but also harder.
All those who work in the company, we consider important and even necessary, to teach our customers how we live in Costa Rica, because of this we have added several attractions and values to some of our tours, to be a complete experience for visitors.
The cultural heritage that these activities offers, strengthen us as a company, and even more as human beings, because it reminds us where we came from and mostly that we need to preserve good values in order to develop as a better society. We have incorporated visits to small family businesses to support these families, the community and entrepreneurship of it.
“To carry out naturalistic trips to educate the tourist about the meaning of the conservation of our natural resources in a sustainable way.”
“To be a company leader in tourist services focused in naturalistic tours to promote the economic and social growth, of the hand with the Sustainable Development.”
