We have been on the turtle tour and the canoe tour with castor. He is a good guide who spotted a lot of wildlife and was right in consulting us the best time to see turtles. His prices are village average and although he doesn't speak too much he gives interesting information about the animals. We recommend doing a tour... More

Try to be on time early in the morning, to be the first group to enter the park. Castor Hunter Thomas is a very nice guide and excellent in spotting jesus christ lizards, caimans and a lot of other wildlife. By the way: don't take a tour with motorized vessel! It will scare all the wild life. Go with Castor,... More

Couldn't have picked better words-went out a couple of days ago with Castor and was amazed at his abilities-but as he said he knows the seasons and where the animals go-the canoe ride was great but if you are not used to a canoe then it can be a bit unnerving at first

Castor helped us with a lot of questions we had and gave us good advice on what tours was worth taking, and which ones to skip. We did the canoe trip with him in a motor-less canoe which we warmly recommend. He new small canals where the large motor boats (which scare away wild life) arent allowed and was a... More
