Christian was our guide and he was very knowledgable. He spotted a tree climbing porcupine, bell bird, emerald toucanet, and a quetzal all in a matter of a couple of hours. This was the first time that I have used a guide in the Monteverde area. I have been to the both Monteverde and Santa Elena reserves and saw some of these animals but I didn't really know what I was seeing and hearing until this trip. It really does make the difference... for me at least. I would recommend this trip and Christian when you are in the area.
