Fantastic tour/ highly recommended
lis 2019 • Pary
We had a fabulous guided tour of Mikes farm. So much to see and learn. Mike was a fantastic guide, who is so passionate and knowledgable and a good laugh.
It was all really interesting but the best bit for us was learning about the angel stingless bees and the honey is divine!
Highly recommended, you won’t be disappointed

We had an incredible time here with our 4 boys recommended by Connie and Ingo at Totobe. Mike has a wealth of knowledge about all creatures great and small, and his small jungle is fascinating from the beautiful butterflies to the helicopter damselflies, and tasty termites! Mike is the perfect host and gave us the opportunity to taste and purchase his incredible range and tasty and super healthy honey. Thank you!

Butterflies, bats and bugs!
kwi 2019 • Pary
What a fascinating time we had! This isn’t one of those “bugs in netting” experiences. Mike, the owner and entomologist, takes you on a two-hour hike through his property, showing you butterflies, damsel flies, termites, bees, bats and bugs in their normal habitat, while teaching you all kinds of interesting details about them. He is extremely knowledgeable, very enthusiastic, and a completely engaging instructor. We loved every minute of the tour, and left laden with honey, soap and everything else we could buy. This was one of the highlights of our four months in Costa Rica. Thank you, Mike!

I almost died when Mike poked a whole in a termite nest and billions of them came out. Then he had us all try them... “just like pine nuts” he said.
Thanks Mike for taking things off my bucket list that I didn’t even know I had on there !

Mike, the owner, is friendly, engaging, and extremely knowledgeable. This tour was great, our group learned so much and were able to view some pretty extraordinary things in nature. No review or words can adequately describe this experience. My recommendation is to get signed up for a tour. Try everything, and bring enough cash for products/souvenirs. They have the most amazing natural products, honey, and coconut oils. You will want to bring a little bit of everything home with you.

It is a beautiful, natural landscape and you can tell Mike and his family have thought of everything and put loving touches to every aspect of the tour. Make this trip a 'YES' trip, where you say yes and have an unforgettable experience.

DO NOT MISS THIS FARM!!!!! The owner, Mike, is one of the most energetic and enthusiastic people I have ever met. I don't know that I have ever met anyone so into their work and who so clearly loves what he is doing and where he is doing it. His knowledge of insects (Don't you DARE call them bugs!) is amazing, and his love of insects, especially those with stings (Do NOT call them stingers!!) is obvious.

We met Mike as he was finishing cleaning up after a band of marauding cows had invaded his farm, eaten some bushes, and - being cows - had extensively decorated his grounds with their souvenirs. But that did nothing to dampen his mood in the slightest. I thought I new a fair bit about insects, but I learned so much more. His tour down into the rainforest does require the ability to walk, but beyond that this is for everyone, young and old. The termites were tasty, but not as tasty as the various types of honey he produces that we sampled. This was far and away the highlight of our trip. Thanks again, Mike!!

We visited Mike’s Butterfly Farm last year and enjoyed it so much we came back again this year and enjoyed it even more. We got to see a Helicopter Damselfly which Mike himself had rarely seen - a very cool little creature!

Mike is incredibly knowledgeable and his enthusiasm is infectious!

“Jungle Mike’s” butterfly farm was an unexpected crazy delight on a recent trip to Costa Rica. Mike came to Costa Rica after being an ivy league entomology professor ( bugs) , but appears to have given it up to live in the jungle with his family, find insects and create home potions and projects, like soap and honey. This visit would entertain ANYONE, only not suitable if u can’t be outside or are are disgusted by bugs. The woods walk has uneven ground, so wear sturdy shoes. Mike reminds me of a beloved family member who also got crazy happy telling stories. Mike is part showman, part teacher and appears to be the beautiful result of living your passion.

This could be the best use of 2 hours of your vacay - it was for us! Mike is awesome/fascinating/feels like an old friend/favourite hip professor and had us hanging on his every word. You will see things you’ve never heard of, taste sublime natural products and learn more than you could imagine in such a short space of time. Make sure you budget extra for Mike’s amazing emporium of coconut and honey goodies.

We spent a fantastic couple of hours being enthralled by Mike. I certainly didn't think I'd be sampling termites - pleasant almond taste - and Mike's enthusiasm in answering any and every question as though it was the first time he'd been asked it (when it reality it was probably the zillionth time) was boundless. We stocked up on honey and coconut products but wish we'd bought more! Out of the way but well worth the effort.
