We learned so much and our kids loved it. So refreshing to see people working hard for the passion of the earth and land and animals we live with. Best tour we've been on in Costa Rica.

This was a great tour for family with children. Our group had a great tour guide who explained to us all the animals, butterflies, snakes, etc, that we were looking at. Great activity if you have an extra 1-1.5 hours
