Exploring the wildest places,

increasing wildlife conservation.

Mission Statement

CRWild, harnessing over two decades of experience in the Neotropics, is committed to crafting unforgettable wildlife experiences across Central and South America, while promoting the conservation of endangered species and fostering environmental education in local communities.

Company Information

Established in 2016, CRWild began as a passionate endeavor based in Costa Rica. With over 22 years of extensive experience in the Neotropics, the founders sought to harness their expertise to create an immersive, impactful exploration of the region's wildlife. 


Our primary objective was to capture the unique and fascinating moments in the lives of amphibians, reptiles, and other wildlife, making nature's splendors accessible to all. 


From our humble beginnings, we have significantly expanded our scope of operations. Starting with Costa Rica, our services have reached into Panama, Guatemala, Mexico, Ecuador, and Colombia, extending our footprint across a rich tapestry of Neotropical habitats. 


Our offerings have grown in diversity and sophistication, ranging from tailor-made tours to night walks, each varying in length, duration, and target species. This expansion has enabled us to cater to a wider variety of nature enthusiasts, providing them with the best possible experience in some of the most spectacular habitats of Neotropical species. 


A significant milestone in our journey has been our commitment to wildlife conservation. We've used our platform to support highly endangered species such as the variable Harlequin toad (Atelopus varius) and the black-headed bushmaster (Lachesis melanocephala). 


A significant portion of our income is dedicated to these efforts, helping to protect and restore their natural habitats. Education, we believe, is a vital part of conservation. 


Therefore, we have broadened our mission to include environmental education and awareness initiatives. Through free talks on snakes, amphibians, and other environmental issues, we aim to create an informed and conscious community. 


We also offer practical courses such as snake handling and other relevant training, integrating locals into our mission. 


From our inception to the present, CRWild has grown into a holistic, eco-conscious endeavor. 


We continue our mission of creating unforgettable experiences, promoting wildlife conservation, and bolstering environmental education, working tirelessly to make a positive impact on the natural world we all share.
