If you want to see the national park and enjoy free time on the beach this is the tour for you. Our tour guy was very informative on all the animals we saw. The walk in the rain forest took an 1 hr. The walk is very easy to do. After day we had almost 3 hours to enjoy the private beaches.
We loved the park and such great, great beaches. Don't go to Costa Rico with out seeing this park, but if you have a rental car, I would definitely do the park by ourselves! And you would see everything seen by people on tours. It took 2 to 3 hours longer than it should have taken for our group -- due to very slow walking pace (because guide had everyone look in his telescope for this and that). Then one couple on our tour wanted the group to be picked up an hour later than scheduled -- I wish I had objected! The tour bus picked us up 2 1/2 hours after the original time schedule! The lunch they include could be done on your own in the same nearby town. Everyone of us were weary and falling asleep waiting for the bus.
