We hired a guide based on other reviews we read on Trip Advisor, and yes, it was well worth it! We would have missed most of the animals if not for our guide. If you can choose, request Robert Umaña - his knowledge of and passion for Costa Rica is amazing! He also took pictures through his scope with my iPhone, so I have some great shots of iguanas, a 3-toed sloth, howler and capuchin monkeys, red-eyed tree frogs, a blue-crowned motmot bird, and raccoons. Bring water with you, and a bathing suit for the beach area.
