Very enjoyable place! The tour guide was knowledgeable about the birds on a very pleasant calm boat ride. I also liked the large gift shop with many toilets available. I tried a free sample of delicious Costa Rican coffee while watching dancers perform.

We had a great birding safari! We were lucky to get a private tour, allowing us to focus in our interests. Hanzel our guide was great! Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the wildlife. Would definitely recommend going with Hanzel. A worthwhile tour if you're in the area!
