Really awful. Very crowded, commercialized, and staged. 100 noisy people around one sloth! Stressful for the animals and not a good representation of respectful wildlife viewing for people. Do not give these people or similar operations your money. We told them to take us home...More

Not sure whether our night was good or not but we saw snakes, two little frogs, sloths, iguanas, tarantulas and sleeping birds. Bit arduous walking for 2 hours in the dark up and down paths in he forest but well worth it
