"Our hostess Wendy, from our Coral Princess cruise ship and throughout the 5 hour tour, was informative, knowledgeable, and funny. The butterfly enclosure and the tram ride was beautiful. I would highly recommend this park and encourage you to see it soon, as the rain forest is quickly disappearing and our generation may be the last to see this beauty and diversity."

"We were on a cruise and had looked at the promotional material on line prior to the cruise.
When we booked a taxi they told us the cost would be $45 US each and that the tour would be 3 hours, we opted not to take the canopy ride as it would be longer.
We were very disappointed as there really was no hummingbirds as advertised, we were taken to a small garden area, no birds even evident.
While our guide was friendly we felt that we were given a very rushed tour. It took under one hour! While the frog area was very interesting and well done. The butterfly gardens were nice, but they were not as good as we have seen in other countries or in the Pacific area of Costa Rica.

We were a group of 4, we paid $20 US each to drive all the way out to the Park on a very rough dirt road, then the fees!! so the cost was $65 US each for a less than one hour and a sandwich lunch!

Definately not worth the effort to get there or the cost! We all felt ripped off!!!!"
