This was an excellent choice of sites. It's an amazing walk thru nature. You have to look good because there is a lot of adventure going on in this forest.

Definitely recommend doing a guided tour rather than self guided. Our guide Brian was very knowledgeable and showed us some wildlife that we wouldn’t be able to spot on our own. We saw snakes and bats and monkeys through the telescope and binoculars he had....More

I'm not an expert but I would expect morning to be the best time to see wildlife and possibly avoid rain. We went in the afternoon without a guide, and we didn't see many animals but had a great time anyway. It's such a... More
