My wife and I were at first discouraged as we paid for a guided tour; however we had seen nothing of exciting interest. Our patience paid off and rewarded with a quinzel viewing. Magnificent! We wish we would have more time to spend here; however...More

Our group of 3 joined the morning tour with a very passionate guide. Easy hike of a couple hours. I can easily say most of the sights we saw we would not have found on our own. Families of monkeys, sloths, rare birds and the...More

Worst customer service possible, the female receptionist is just a useless rude person. There is nothing good to say about it. The reserve is OK, I highly recommend to visit Santa Elena reserve instead, which is a much better place to enjoy nature with out...More

We spent about 3 hours walking and the terrain was beautiful. Always bring a raincoat but otherwise, it was perfect weather.

It was a wet, fairly cold and windy morning this morning when we visited. We saw a few birds and a snake (that was with a guide). The highlight for us was seeing the hummingbirds at the feeding stations close to the entrance of the...More

A tour guide is recommended since they know which trails to see wildlife and where to spot them. We were lucky to see a male and a female quetzal and take good pics. We walked to the waterfall and back and then to the hummingbird...More

I saw taxis all around when we were there and the staff is extremely helpful. I think you’d be able to request them to call one for you if you needed it. We actually have a French couple a ride into Santa Elena because they... More
