Such a great afternoon! We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed pace and guidance from Christopher. He was a wealth of knowledge about the history and wildlife. We saw 4 types of herons, variety of birds and some howler monkeys. Highly recommend.

This was an unforgettable experience! From the competent, knowledgable and friendly staff to the tour and sights, we had an amazing day from start to finish. While the transit from our hotel in Samara to Tenorio was quite long (approximately 3.5 hours) it was well worth it.
