Had a wonderful time. This is what I most wanted to see in Costa Rica and it didn't disappoint. Trails are easily manageable, even for someone with a bad knee and some time. Our guide Alex was very helpful. We saw many birds including the male and female quetzal. For a peaceful and beautiful nature experience, this is a great choice.

We went on a tour in a small group (6 people) with a very knowledgeable guide. Even though the guides know where the wildlife is most likely to be spotted, there are no assurances, as birds and animals usually blend in their environment. We saw an abundance of trees and plants, but somewhat disappointing number of local birds. We could not see the most "prized" bird in the reserve - Resplendent Quetzal, only a part of his tail as the bird was sitting in the distance deep in the branches. But after the end of the tour our guide drove with us to show outside the reserve where a young sloth was sleeping in the tree right above the road.

We enjoyed our time here but didn't see that many birds or animals. We much prefered the Curi-Cancha wildlife refuge where we saw monkeys and more birds including the resplendent quetzal.

Beautiful setting. We saw beautiful birds and walked across the continental divide.

Trails were well groomed and the guides took special efforts to be sure everyone in the tour saw the famed Quetzal bird. He even helped everyone take a picture through his telescope and they are incredible beautiful birds. It was a tour that was worth the price.
