Marbello Tours operates this trip...and Milton picked us up promptly as scheduled for a lengthy day of adventure. He drove the three of us thru Braulio Carrillo NP...so lush and gorgeous. We stopped at Rainforest Adventures...where Louis took over to give us a hike, aerial tram ride etc. I have already reviewed a portion of this day elsewhere on Trip Advisor. Suffice to say it was so well worth the start...in fact we would have been happy with all that we saw, if the day had ended there.
Milton then collected us again and drove us down to the Caribbean side of Costa Rica...where it was much more hot and humid. We stopped at Selva Verde...beautiful eco lodge...for a wonderful lunch, followed by some intense frog searching thru various ponds. We saw a lot of interesting local flora and fauna, and ended with a hike over a rather wobbly suspension bridge. Great fun.
We then drove to the Sarapiqui River, where we boarded a long boat for a ride in search of anything that moved. The boat captain, despite being ill was incredible at locating all sorts of wildlife and then trying to navigate the current to allow for photographic opportunities. Very enjoyable time.
The only downside to this day came at the end, when the car started overheating as it attempted the elevations of the central divide. Milton was right on the phone, and made it to the Rainforest Adventure area, where they attempted to fix the problem. Unfortunately this wasn't successful and we had to stop later. Milton had alerted his office, and it wasn't long until a new car was sent to collect us. No body's fault, just one of those things...we felt badly for Milton who was left on the mtn with his overheated car, as the rain started, until others could come and collect him and the car.
Despite the ending...we had a stupendous day...and seriously would have paid double for the wonderful experience that we were shown.
