Choose from a couple of tours, including a night walking trip through the forest, or explore the reserve by yourself. The well-marked trails provide a great opportunity for birdwatching and spotting animals, as the forest is inhabited by three-toed sloths, coatis, and more than 150 avian species. Along the way you can enjoy the lush vegetation and colorful flowers, while after the tour you can visit the herbal garden, butterfly sanctuary, and the ranarium, which houses poison dart frogs.

我們參加了晚間遊，在網上報名時，網站和電郵都不通，看tripadvisor的意見才發現只可用facebook報名！ 安排不錯，可是同團有4人來自東歐，他們全程大聲說話，導遊叫他們輕聲說話，以免嚇走動物，但他們不理，很掃興！ more »We are involved in the late tour, in the network report, the website and email are not through, see TripAdvisor's opinion only found only available Facebook report name! The arrangement is good, but the same regiment has 4 people from the east, they say the whole thing, guide them to speak lightly, so as not to scare away the animals, but they ignore, very happy!
Went here today with my wife and children and had a great time. Paid the extra for a guided tour and it was well worth it. Elias was our guide and did a great job...saw a sloth, frogs, herons, caymans, a big boa...it was great. Don't think we'd have seen much on our own.Would definitely recommend!!
Our tour guide was great. He was easy to understand and willing to take his time. He carried around a monocular on a tripod and showed us different animals with it. We saw 2 sloths, a toucan, and plenty of other animals which the guide pointed out. We would have never seen them without him.
