I went to Costa Rica with my wife and 2 young children, 3 and 5 and thought it was a great trip to view the wild life. This trip did not disappoint. The guides were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The bus arrived on time and the trip came back on time. We were able to see a basilisk lizard, crocodile, bats, and lots of monkeys. we were surprised by the snacks at the end of the tour which inc luded grinding our on sugar cane. The kids felt safe and had fun. Joshua was our guide and pointed out many animals and described them well to us with lots of extra details. I highly recommend this trip.... (read more)

A truly un forgettable experience.... (read more)

We enjoyed the afternoon cruise down the Penas Blancas, a scenic and slow moving river with lots of wildlife. We saw lots of Howler monkeys, crocodiles, bats, and a great variety of birds. The crew were very professional and we always felt safe. Our guide Albarone was very knowledgeable and had a great eye for picking out wildlife. The trip concluded with a visit to a small farm situated on the ri ver and hosted by a very nice couple that provided a few local snacks, and some great coffee or sugar cane drink.
