We booked a private early morning bird watching tour with Juan Carlos as our guide. The guide and driver arrived on time with a comfortable sized van. We left the Occidental Papagayo resort and hadn't gone 1 mile when we pulled off the road and were looking at birds. This continued for several hours until we reached the private natural reserve located near the rainforest.
Juan Carlos's and the drivers skills to spot birds and wildlife were uncanny. Both guides were enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and had excellent English speaking skills.
Unfortunately, when bending down to see a hummingbird, a sharp, tiny, pointed stick entered the side of my wife's eye. We cut the tour short, and Juan Carlos working with the tour company, got us an appt with an eye specialist and we were in and out in 30 minutes. Not serious. This could have been a disaster, but the tour company really stepped it up and there was no medical cost to us.
We saw monkeys, sloths, humming birds, caracara, and many other species.
