Guide Isaac was very friendly and engaging. Arrived on time at our pick up point. He drove us safely. Tour was good , not tons of things to do in the forest but the swim hole was fun.Stopped at a restaurant, I can’t comment on the food as I did not eat. My son had a fresh mango smoothie and loved it.I bought reasonably priced souvenirs there. Overall my party of six which includes three crusty teenagers had a good time. It was just enough.

This trip to the rainforest was magnificent. Our tour guide (Alex) was very knowledgeable and humorous, which allowed everyone to feel comfortable and well informed. The walk through was not vigorous. We had a 5yr old with us and he did just fine. A few hills, but accompanied by so much vegetation and scenery. We highly recommend this tour.

Nice tour for sightseeing in the rain forest. Hiking is gentle and your guide is nice.
