We struck gold by getting Froy again as our guide and, better still, we were the only ones who had booked the 6am tour.
We went along the trail on our own in total peace and quiet at one with the birds and other wildlife.
Because we went early we saw Toucans, both sitting and flying ( apparently later they tend to be deeper in the forest), a proliferation of birds that Froy was able to photograph got me through his scope, howler and white faced monkeys and a baby venomous snake with a diamond head that came out orangey brown in the photograph, but looked a dirty, well camouflaged brown to the naked eye.
The bridges are worth visiting fora completely different perspective on the rainforest. Personally I found the Cano Negro visit better, but, if you have time do both (preferably with Froy)
When we returned from the trail around 9am the car park was heaving and there were groups everywhere. It is a pain getting up before 5am on holiday, but in this case it is definitely worth it
