Perhaps I'm biased because I had excellent night walks in sarapiqui and tortuguero. But this place was too touristy and crowded. We did see a few interesting wildlife, not sure I'd recommend this though.

This was honestly the highlight of my trip. Saw more animals on this short night walk than I did in Monteverde all day. Would definitely recommend.
