    Hello, I am considering purchasing the same Groupon deal but I have a question about the local wildlife- spiders specifically. I have a pretty bad phobia of spiders and I know there are some pretty horrendous ones in the lowlands of Costa Rica. Did you encounter any tarantulas/banana spiders etc on the hotel property or on any of the excursions? I need to know what I may be in for ahead of time. Thanks!
