We had a small group and we were able to see crocodiles (even babies), exotic birds, and two kinds of monkeys! Our guide would not give up until we saw the monkeys and it made our day! The guide was fun and shared a lot of great Costa Rica knowledge with us. This was NOT the most expensive river tour, we searched around, but it was THE BEST! (FYI...all tours are on the same river and use the same type of boat so no need to go for the most expensive).
Interesting and informative guide through our drive and the boat trip. Saw many "hidden" animals due to good boatman and guide. Guide "called" to howler and capuchin monkeys and encouraged them to come closer for perfect views. One curious capuchin actually came on the roof of our boat to checkout the tourists!
Everything about the tour was interesting, from the drive to the river to the journey up and down river. we saw plenty of wildlife and our guide Jose was friendly and informative. Highly recommended.
It was a beautiful ride and scenery. I highly recommend it. The guide (Jose) and the driver were very knowledgeable about all the animals we saw.
I am an amateur bird photographer and was delighted with the river cruise. Lots of close ups.
