We did the self-guided walk on the rainforest trails and found it to be very relaxing and rewarding. We know you can always see more wildlife when you go with a guide, but we didn't want the pressure of a guided tour. The hanging bridges are fun to cross and the views of the Sarapiqui River are lovely. We were very fortunate in seeing lots of wildlife. We walked almost all of the trails and saw many strawberry poison-dart frogs, other small frogs, toucans, wild pigs, many birds, and a troop of howler monkeys right above us on the long bridge into the reserve as we were leaving. They stayed on the bridge cables and in the trees and let us take lots of photos.
The forest is pretty with several big trees and lots of neat vines.
We agree, however, with most of the recent comments that the trails are definitely in need of maintenance. They could use staff walking them at least once or twice a week to clear debris and maintain the paths.
The self-guided tour is well-priced for a lovely couple of hours walking through the rainforest.
