I echo the reviews of the previous visitors. We visited Curi Cancha on March 24th, driving from Potrero - an adventure in and of itself. Our guide, Rafael Elizondo was knowledgeable and patient, answering the myriad of questions we posed and waiting while our littlest traveler needed attention. I'm beginning to think the Quetzal that we observed is a long tie resident of the reserve, based on the numerous observations listed by other visitors. Sure enough, Rafael found our feathered friend perched on a tree where no one but a trained watcher would have spotted him. Rafael took pictures for us through his telephoto and spent all the time we wanted to watch this magnificent bird. Also spotted a red deer, lots of monkeys a toucanette and agoutis. The reserve is quiet and a great place for a hike in the forest. The trails are easy and the flora and fauna offer a variety of experiences in a relatively small area. Rafael's vast knowledge added so much to our visit - from the explanation of the fig tree's life cycle to the discussion of the millipede's defenses (cyanide!), he made our cloud forest trip one to remember. Best advice for anyone visiting Curi Cancha is to have an experienced guide - it is just a walk in the woods without one.
