Such a wonderful, lush, alive forest! I overcame my fear of swinging bridges over deep ravines to have this experience and I am very glad I did. The animals and vegetation were spectacular and our guide was fabulous in spotting wildlife of interest and helping us get great photos.
This was a truly great tour. Gustavo is a wonderful, knowledgeable guide. The fauna and flora are outstanding. The park itself is very nice and very well maintained. One of the best tours we have had on our Costa Rica trip.
Our tour guide for our Hanging Bridges tour was excellent. He was very dynamic and enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge about the rain forest we were walking through. Having a guide is a very different experience from walking through the forest on your own. He explained so many details about the various trees, visitors could not possibly have gathered the information on their own. It was very fascinating. It was also very interesting walking along the various suspension bridges across the very deep gullies. Some were longer and swayed more than others and some relatively short. They provided a beautiful view of the forest. Though the walk was not especially challenging, it did require some endurance as there was a certain amount of climbing and descending along the paths. Though we encountered other visitors to the park, it was not crowded. Our guide carried a laser pointer which helped us locate what he was trying to bring to our attention when it was at a greater distance. Probably the highlight was seeing the large grouping of spider monkeys high in the canopy, swinging from tree to tree. Some were moms with babies hanging on for dear life! They were a beautiful rust colour. We watched them for some time. We also learned about insects, particularly cutter ants and their different functions. Some very interesting information was also provided on the symbiotic relationships between some birds and trees. All very interesting. At the culmination of our tour, we were offered watermelon, pineapple and biscuits before heading home. All was excellent and an unexpected treat. All in all, an excellent day.
We had a wonderful time on this tour! Our guide was Andres and he was fantastic!! We signed up for the group tour but unexpectedly got our own private tour. Andres was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He helped us take several great pictures. I would most definitely recommend this tour!!!
This was amazing! Our tour guide Miriljana was awesome...she pointed out things we would never have found or seen. Crossing the bridges was a little scary at first, but after a while, the view was more important than trying not to look down. Highly recommended. Our guide was through EcoTerra tours.
