Nice tour with Morgan last week. We had a 7 and 8 year old, so the complete darkness was a little scary for the younger one. We saw many insects, frogs and even some venomous snakes. We did see some mammals that were getting rehabbed...More

Nadia was our guide and was incredibly knowledgeable about all of the animals, plants, insects, snakes, etc. It was seriously muddy after a lot of rain. They gave us galoshes which were a necessity. We hiked for 3 hours looking at sloths, howler monkeys, raccoons,...More

Stunning trek through the rain forest of Costa Rica. Amazing! Sloths in the wild. Howler monkeys making noise but not appearing where we were. Poison dart frogs, bullet ants, and more. Wonderful walk after a delicious lunch. Be sure to plan to take your time!...More

None. You have to get a taxi (local bus will stop at the turnoff from the main road but it's then a 2km walk (quite a hard one). When you contact them to book your tour or accommodation, they can recommend taxistas)
