You won't regret going. Pick a quieter time and buy LOADS OF CARROTS!!! So worth the extra money. We went there as a random act for a couple of hours and I want to go back again.

Am coming to Costa Rica and one of my day trips is to come to the Safari. How much does it cost and is the lunch included or do we pay separate to eat? Is the food all Costa Rican or is it a mix of Canadian and Costa Rican?
