This was an excellent and well organised trip and we had a great time. The variety of plant and animal life in this part of the world especially Costa Rica is amazing although you need patience because of course the animals in the National Parks are not waiting to be photographed. Special thanks to our guide Janet who worked hard for the group. We would recommend that you insist on having her for your tour leader for this trip because English is her first language so it was easy to discuss complicated matters and share subtle jokes. We appreciated her invitation to visit her home and meet the family horses at Monteverde.
