The whole walk is very easy and well signposted so basically you could do it on your own. Of course you would not see the animals, or if you see them you wouldn't know what they are. That's why it pays off to take a guided tour. You see and learn lots of good stuff. Our guide Melvin was great. He wanted to share his knowledge and made the effort that also the kids who were in the group enjoyed the walk. Most of the time he was talking about the plants, trees, fruits, seeds etc. Very interesting stuff. It is a pity that you don't remember the names of the trees but fortunately many trees have nicknames based on what they are used for. We did see some animals also, hummingbirds, acoutis, a swarm of butterflies flying out of their daytime hide, and - a resplendent quetzal! Or at least the guide said it was there. It was sitting in a tree about 200m from us. Even though I looked twice through the telescope where the bird was allegedly sitting in the middle of the lens, I couldn't see it. So hard to spot something green with a hint of blue among all the green around you. Unless you have a trained eye. Another group joined us to look at the quetzal too, it is not something you see everyday.
It was a nice walk although I expected to see more animals. Most likely we scared the animals away, the family who was in our group was a bit noisy for the circumstances..
