A little rainy. but great tour!
This was my first nature tour of this trip. My guide, Yahaira Sibaja Arroyo, was exceptional. She set expectations on our drive to the location where we started the walking tour. Once there she was busy spotting birds and bugs. While preparing to start the tour I was eating a quick snack. My guide, in an excited manner, asked if I wanted to see a snake. Of course I did, as long as I was there. So we went around the buildings toward the maintenance shed. There curled up on the ground was "the snake" and was it a beauty. But everyone was standing far back and talking excitedly. Yaha, set up her spotting scope and then took several spectacular pictures for me. That fer-de-lance sighting was for me a highlight of my tour. After that we were off through the woods sighting around 40 species of birds. I also learned about walking across hanging bridges as they swayed high above the canopy. To me, this was a great experience.
The BEST!!! Great guide. Going early is the best because there really were only a few people in the forest and by the time we finished seeing wild boar, spider monkeys, toucans, bats, LOTS of birds the place was filling up. The breakfast and coffee was outstanding. It was one of the favorites for all of us.
