A Recent Review of this guide

Mario is an excellent guide. We were picked up on time. We never felt rushed on this tour. Mario is extremely knowledgeable and speaks excellent English. He knows his birds by their call and brought a scope so we could see animals close up. Mario would spot sloths, monkeys, and birds that we would have walked right past. He also had a very nice bird book that we could cross reference. My only suggestion would be to improve the lunch - we had cold dried rice and chicken. Absolutely recommend!!
