Good tour of the park with a guide who was extremely knowledgeable about the fauna, knew where to look for interesting things and was patient with us as we tried to track birds we had spotted. While it seems a bit pricey at $30 per person for a 2-hour tour ($10 admission and $20 for the guide), it was well worth it. We got good views of monkeys and sloths through the guide's telescope, as well as numerous species of birds - a pair of toucans and the orange-collared manakin with its snapping wings were highlights. Outside the park on the bridge over the Rio Tarcoles, we got two good looks at mackaws flying across - gorgeous birds with brilliant red and blue. Under the bridge is the local crocodile hangout...we counted at least 29 and a couple of them were not small characters.
