Everybody was really easy going and the whole trip was really amazing. I would definitely recommend this company and I hope to come back and take another adventure someday!" Michelle Webb, Minnesota, USA

The depth of knowledge that you have shown about the nature of this special area was amazing. Not to mention your sharp eyes that spotted animals that we would never be able to observe without you... We have learned much about life in the jungle as well about Costa Rican culture and society in general.
Taking you as our guide and trip organizer left us free of worries about the "small details" and enabled us to have a pure enjoyable journey.
