    Eric is a great tour guide. He is very knowledgeable, flexible, and exudes positive energy. I love all the photos he took for us. He lets us spend more time on the things we really like like swimming in the waterfall and staying longer on the hot springs for example and accelerate on some areas. We learn a lot from this tour - the history, culture, geography, wildlife, flora and fauna, and biodiversity of Costa Rica plus we really enjoy it. He even gives some tip on great restaurants. Pura Vida!!! Muchas gracias! Beautiful memories indeed!
