  • This place is amazing. Unbelievably cool and educational experience. A must do if you’re in Costa Rica. It is hot and the walk can be hard work, we did about 20km in the heat so be prepared. The local guides are amazing and share lots of information and are able to spot animals that the untrained eye wouldn’t be able to spot. Honestly, looks like Jurassic park - I was expecting to see dinosaurs!
  • Went here with a school group in spring of 2022. Guides were amazing, weather was fantastic, and saw a huge variety of wildlife. Our guide took us to many amazing viewpoints and even a swimming hole, and was excellent at taking magnified pictures through a sporting scope.
