We took the guided tour and it was well worth every penny. Anderson our guide had a great command of English and helped us to see many animals we would have missed on our own. Loved this experience!

This hike was not difficult and can be done at your own pace. In fact, when you take your time you see more wildlife. Keeping your conversations to a minimum will help to not scare the wildlife away. Please bring your camera because you don't...More

A little scary as these are high bridges, but you can move quickly across them if you choose to miss the awesome views. We had monkeys traveling above us on our trip, it was raining on & off, but we are in the rain forest:)

We went in the morning like 9 or 10 a.m. and saw some wildlife. Much of what we saw we probably wouldn't have seen without our guides assistance.

We had a guide, and were so happy we did, She saw wildlife we never would have seen on our own, and was so onformative. There is an entrance fee, and there were people doing it on there own. Beautiful walk!
