Nice walk in the forest, lots of birds, we did not see quetzals this time of the year but last time we visited we were in the right season and were able to spot and take pictures of many..

This was a great introduction to the area and we enjoyed seeing a number of animals (coatis, snakes, juvenile quetzal, etc.). There was a four-year old girl in our group who seemed to enjoy it as much as the adults did. The reserve is not as extensive as Monteverde, but we liked doing tours of both reserves.

If you like to explore a vast area on foot then this is the place for you to explore all the wildlife wonders of Costa Rica. We saw 55 species of birds on our trip. We did go on a guide tour with David Madrigal Naturalist Guide in the morning which was helpful to try to get an idea of the paths in the reserve because it is a large place. The guide was bilingual so he was great to point out birds. Also always remember your rain gear it is Costa Rica after all!! We were there in November which was just out of the clear for the really wet season but I think we would have seen more birds if we would have waited until January.

We didn't know about this private reserve until we were actually in the area but read some reviews and gave it a go. It was fantastic and highly recommended. My wife and I went by ourselves, no guides, and still saw lots of stuff. They have a good variety of habitats so you have the chance to see lots following the trails. There were good hummingbirds gardens - which finally allowed a good chance to see the magenta throated woodstar. Trogons and seeing the Quetzal on our own . Well worth a visit.

Curi Cancha now offers guided electric golf cart tours that take you deep into the forest. We went today because I have a disability and walk with crutches. The tour was for three hours, and our guide David was amazing. He is an incredible naturalist with a deep knowledge of the local birds and wildlife. We saw a resplendent quetzal, as well as spider monkeys, an emerald toucanet, and many other beautiful and interesting creatures. He was also great with our kids (ages 8 and 14). If you have a limited ability to hike, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. We feel very fortunate to have found Curi Cancha and David. It's an experience we'll never forget.
