Being bat biologists from the U.S., it was great to see some of the bats of Costa Rica up close and personal. Phillipe lead our tour and was very knowledgeable and friendly.

This was a small venue, but the guys who founded it are so passionate about bats, it was worth the trip. The kids were engaged the entire tour and still talk about it!
