This trip could have been better but they crammed 12 people in a van. It was a small group but I was thinking less than 10. The van was crammed packed, no leg room and the air conditioning did not work so well. Perhaps it was too many people and it could not cool down but it made the trip a bit unbearable.

The breakfast buffet was surprisingly good and very filling. We went on other tours where the food was lacking so we were prepared and ate something before the tour just in case. They also made a few tourist stops which was not mentioned but cool. We were able to see crocodiles and iguanas as well as had a souvenir shopping stop. Not too horrible to tourist prices.

I think the communication of the tour guide could have been better as it would have been good to know right when we were entering the National Park and the last chance to buy water. Also, you need to bring snacks as it is such a long day with no food other than the early morning breakfast. Also, while the tour included lunch, the lunch was past 4:00 pm. We are not used to eating lunch at 4:15 so we were grumpy, hot, tired AND starving. The lunch was delicious but by that time, anything could have been served to us and we all would have wolfed it down. The tour guide tried to please everyone but a bit more communication may have helped us be more prepared like bringing/buying cold water and having snacks.

The beach was nice but nothing spectacular. Walk to the beach was ok but saw a sloth and white tailed deer. We did see a ton of white faced monkeys but watch out, they are on the hunt for food and they know food is often in backpacks and coolers. Good trip but a very long day. I would recommend finding out the size of the group even if it says small group. Cramped transportation made it less enjoyable as you are in this van for hours.
