Check this out and find out how fascinating the Wildlife in Costa Rica.
Today, we had a guided tour of one of the best areas of the park with an awesome wildlife guide, Danny Vasquez of Quepos Verde Aventura, a tour service owned by Parador Resort and Spa – the top luxury hotel in the area – who showed us sloths, bats, monkeys, land crabs, lizards and raccoons, plus loads of incredible bird species only found in this area of jungle. If you’re looking for something a little more backpacker friendly, we recommend checking out Vista Serena; it’s just around the corner and has one of the best sunset views in town!
