I enjoyed this as part of cruise package excursion. Weather was surprisingly good for time of visit and all of our guides were awesome. Great fresh air and interesting history on reading the story poles.

We loved walking in the the rain forest with our wonderful guide Sarah. Walking in the trail, breathing the fresh and sweet air is so refreshing! Sarah is very knowledgeable and has a very good sense of humor and we enjoyed our stay here.

The rainforest sanctuary is absolutely beautiful. With lovely running streams, moss everywhere, eagle nest and eagles perched high in the tree, this is really worth making the effort to see. Loved it. While we were there, we also saw a deer. Really cool.

Great tour! Much longer than expected. Platforms are small, but we felt very safe the whole time. 2 long ride, 4-5 shorter rides, and 3 bridges. Great guides with lots of energy.

Seeing a bear was top of our wish list so we were very lucky to see six catching and eating fish. We were told that you’re more likely to see them in wet weather so we were glad for once that it was pouring that...More
