El viaje es entretenido e interesante, pero el guía lo hace inolvidable. Nos atendió el guía Pierre, quien posee muchísimo conocimiento sobre la historia cultural y natural de la zona, aunado a un muy buen manejo de grupos. También habla bien español, inglés y su idioma natal, el francés. El capitán del bote fue Abelardo, quien tiene una vista increíble para detectar aves y otras especies de fauna como monos araña, aulladores, carablanca; así como caimanes y otras especies. El sitio donde recibimos los snacks y el almuerzo, es amplio, bonito y la comida estaba deliciosa. El conductor de la buseta manejaba bastante bien y nos ayudó durante el camino a ver muchas aves. La chica que nos vendió el tour fue muy amable, profesional y atenta. En definitiva, un viaje recomendado

We were promptly picked up at our Arenal resort by the tour bus. Our trip in was very informative, as our guide Rebecca knows her stuff! She clearly loves her job, and it shows! She made the long bus ride very enjoyable. On the way in, we say a multitude of birds, a Caiman & a sloth. Upon arrival, we had the opportunity to partake in yummy pancakes and coffee. The boat trip was spectacular. We saw howler monkeys, even an orange howler! We also saw capuchin monkeys and a two toed sloth. Lots of birds and a Jesus Christ Lizard. After the boat trip, we had a wonderful Costa Rican lunch before heading back. It was a truly enjoyable, and educational, trip!
