My husband and I just returned from a cruise to Central America. Before we left San Diego, we registered with Odyssey for a day tour. My e-mail request was immediately answered by Alvaro. He and his family own the tour company. They met our cruise ship on the appointed day. Alvaro's father was our driver and Victor, who is not a member of the family, was our guide. His English was near perfect, and he was absolutely delightful. We were a group of 8, which was a perfect size. My husband and I are rather independent and don't usually do tours, but this tour was so exceptional, so interesting, and so comprehensive. We saw wild life in their natural setting, including crocodiles, monkeys, macaws, toucans, and wonderful butterflies. And none of this was part of any zoo, or display -- it was all very natural. The family clearly has a deep respect for the rain forrest and the animals living within it. We paid nothing up front and only paid for the tour at the end. We were treated to lunch as part of the fee, and given water and soft drinks during the drive. One other thing we liked about this tour was how they let us decide when we were ready to go on to the next part of the tour. No rushing. It was a fabulous day and one I will always remember.
