I came based on the reviews and what a great decision. The passion and knowledge of the guides is inspiring. I have some physical difficulties and their care and generosity of spirit was heart warming. Their philosophies are admirable and their education and respect for the indigenous people's way of life was a wonderful lesson for my daughter and the morning spent in the local village was a highlight as was their policy of employing many locals at the lodge. The heat was at times hard to take but the rooms were glorious and the morning jungle sounds to wake you simply glorious. Animal watching not quite as enriching as Costa Rica but seeing tapir relatively close was a rare and cherished moment. What an amazing place to spend Christmas!
