I will be with a group of 4-6 backpackers in a couple weeks and we are interested in doing a guided tour in Santa Elena rather than the more crowded Monteverde. Ideally I would like it to be private and affordable-- someone who is knowledgeable about the flora and fauna that can walk around with us and point things out for an hour or two.
Is it best to book something like this in advance or to pick up a guide there? Can anyone recommend someone in particular in the area (if you are a guide or know someone PM me). We all speak fluent spanish so english is not a must.
