Bushmaster Adventures Costa Rica was founded out of the love and respect of the flora and fauna of the country.  All of the private tours focus on the most bio-dense and bio-diverse places where clients are sure to have an amazing experience. The company started out of the founder's love for herpetology and the misunderstood snakes and "creepy crawlies" out there in the jungle.  All tours have professional guides that also share that passion and are happy to show clients everything that makes up this beautiful country! No matter what you're looking for, we'll do our best to help you find it!

Gary has been involved in animal conservation & animal rescue in South Africa as well as here in Costa Rica.  He even started his own Red-Eyed Tree Frog Re-Population Project in the Osa Penninsula and one in the Arenal area. He has rescued and released many snakes from neighbors homes where they were not "welcome". In doing so he's educated many people about these often misunderstood creatures and why to preserve them as they've been taught the opposite in the past.  All creatures have a function in this world and Gary feels it's his purpose to educate, conserve and give-back wherever possible.

Gary Kritzinger is certified in handling venomous snakes and does herpetology tours along with other tours to see these beautiful animals in their natural environment.  Gary also has several professional guides waiting to help you to have an amazing experience in Costa Rica.
