Tour Guide very Knowledgeable

Wow! Just wow! What an amazing experience. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable. We got to see so many sloths, insects and all types of flora. I highly recommend this trip. I advise you take comfortable shoes- thought it's not as much walking as others, still tiring-some. I also recommend you take your own water bottle.
Monkeys, sloths, frogs and more!
