We visited Ave Azul de la Osa today and it was just wonderful. Patrick is the most enthusiastic and inspiring host with a true, life long passion for birds and other wildlife. Well worth a visit, both for the birds and the stories.

Patrick and Rubyanne are so friendly. This was a great couple of hours spent on our rest day after our 2 day hike through Corcovado National Park. The kids (and adults) found it very educational and the birds are beautiful!
