Outstanding guide and tour of Manuel Antonio. Iguana Tours picked us up from our hotel and provided transportation for the entire tour, with a tropical fruit break at the end. Our guide wasn't afraid to reveal tricks of the trade for how they were able to spot so many animals--most animals we saw are territorial and are typically seen in specific spots. Our guide was very professional and had extensive knowledge of the flora, fauna, and wildlife of the park. He was equipped with a spotting scope that allowed us to see a lot more of the wildlife up close and even offered to take pictures if our cameras weren't able to zoom in close enough. We would have definitely missed 90% of the things we saw on the tour if it wasn't for our guide. Highly recommend having one if touring the park. Although the tour started off slow, once we started hearing and seeing the various wildlife, the time flew by.
I did not like that they only stopped at the beaches briefly before continuing on the tour. The guides build up how nice the beaches are and that we should definitely spend some time at them, but the tour only stops briefly before continuing on. If you decide to stay at the beach instead of continuing with the tour, you're responsible for your own transportation back which could be a short walk or an "expensive" cab ride.
