We had a great time on the Natural History Tour with our guide Indira. She saw things in the trees that we never would have spotted with our untrained eyes. We saw howler monkeys, a white hawk, a boa constrictor, a baby viper, a vine snake, some colorful birds, and more. We even saw two tayras crossing the trail in front of us (Indira said this was only the second time in 7 years that she had seen tayras here, so this was our lucky day!). We also learned a lot about the plant life that we saw. The hike was fun, and our family enjoyed crossing over the bridges (beware the Waterfall Bridge for those who might be afraid of heights!). We also had a grand view of the Arenal Volcano from the top bridge, as well as the restaurant deck. We highly recommend the hanging bridges, but go with a guide if you really want to get the most out of your experience here. We did see other people walking on their own, zipping right past creatures that were camouflaged among the plants--they really missed out!
