He taught us a lot along the trail about the park as well as about the culture of Costa Rica. Daniel was great.

A wonderful place to bird. Go early in the morning to see the most, and be sure to go with a guide, preferable Andreas. You will see and hear so much more as he calls in birds right to your feet and points out what they eat, how they nest, and who they are.

This was our second trip here. Highly recommend a guide. Ours was Andres and he was superb. Also, get there early as we started at 7 AM. Birds get mighty scarce by mid-day. We found lots of birds, some nests, some interesting interactions. We saw about 60 species of birds plus an agouti and some Morphos. Interesting history goes along... More

I came here with a group of avid birdwatchers from the Central Valley. We arrived quite late for birds (best hours are from 5:30 to 7:30or from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm.) But we could see a lot of them (around 94 species in 5 hours). We were also very excited to see the big and peaceful petroglyph wich it... More

Cusingos is well maintained and the staff were very friendly. I was living nearby and had the privilege to go 3 - 4 times a week and was soon on a first-name basis with some of the employees. They took the time to show me the interiors of the buildings and it was as though Alexander Skutch had never left.... More

This was a big, disappointing bust for us. Admittedly, we didn't call ahead; we just showed up and asked for a guide. Unfortunately, none were available. So we walked the trail ourselves, looking for birds. Saw none. Not. One. Bird. We saw some butterflies and a huge grasshopper. We talked to others we saw on the trail who had a... More

We appreciated Andres, our guide. He was very professional about finding the birds and managing our somewhat disparate group of 5 birders. He also showed us through the home of the former owner, and shared some warm memories of him. The property has a developed garden/home area as well as a trail through the forest. All the areas produced beautiful... More

This is a very peaceful setting for birding and is very deserving of the support from tourist dollars.
