Just go. The dinner is delectable, the night walk is astounding, and the chance to see jungle animals in their natural habitat at night is priceless. This was the highlight of my trip.

Stunning trek through the rain forest of Costa Rica. Amazing! Sloths in the wild. Howler monkeys making noise but not appearing where we were. Poison dart frogs, bullet ants, and more. Wonderful walk after a delicious lunch. Be sure to plan to take your time!...More
