Great tour
Samantha_O, May 2022
Our guide Andres was excellent and we saw so many animals that we wouldn’t have seen otherwise had we not have done the tour

The guided tour is the perfect option for people who want to see animals since the expert eye of the guide contributes to the sightings. The Self-Guided tour is recommended for meditation, a nature connection, and no limit walk, on your own. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Sandra_O, Jun 2022
We had an amazing time on the tour. Anderson was really knowledgeable and took his time to answer our questions. I highly recommend taking the tour if you are interested in seeing wildlife and learning about the them and the vegetation. We saw a tarantula, 3 snakes, 2 red eyed frogs, two types of monkeys, red frog, worker ants and a snail. Without Anderson we honestly would have just walked the trail and bridges. I doubt we would’ve seen any animals except for the monkeys bc they were loud and moved a lot in the trees. He carried a telescope so that we could see them as some animals/insects were camouflaged and difficult to see from afar. Anderson was patient with us and let us take our time to take pictures. Our group was small, only 8 people, so it was nice to chat with other guests and Anderson. The hike itself is not strenuous but it is a long hike. Our tour was in English.

Anderson is the best!
Lily_M, May 2022
Anderson was such a great guide! Despite being in a downpour, he was able to point out bats, birds, lizards, frogs, and tarantulas. He made me feel a lot less nervous about the hanging bridges (they sway & bounce & are high up) and encouraged me along the way. I very much recommend this tour with Anderson!

Don’t go without a guide!!
meredith_s, Apr 2022
We had an excellent time taking a tour at the hanging bridges. We were very glad we chose to have a guide take us around the park. Carlos showed us all kinds of wildlife and vegetation that we would have never seen has we not had a guide. We actually had a couple people try and join our tour halfway through b/c they saw the benefit of having s guide take you. Definitely a must and I would highly recommend going with s guide.
