Best Nature Tour in La Fortuna

This was one of my favorite nature tours in Costa Rica. My guide Indira was absolutely AMAZING and extremely knowledgable about the wildlife and nature we encountered. Her enthusiasm made for such an enjoyable visit and we saw an abundance of reptiles (vipers) and insects (like the odd but fascinating stick bug). This tour is definitely not just sitting and watching birds and is SO MUCH MORE! We walked the easy trail through the Mistico jungle park while spotting tons of wildlife up close (including a family of coatis). Not to be missed and if I had one choice for a nature park in La Fortuna, this would definitely be it!

Hola Luiza, un gusto de saludarla. Para Mistico Park es de mucha importancia que todos nuestros visitantes disfruten al máximo del bosque. Razón por la cual recomendamos realizar la caminata en compañía de un guía naturalista que contribuye en el avistamiento diferentes tipos fauna silvestre y a aprender sobre bosque y su comportamiento. Muchas gracias por su comentario y esperamos que pueda visitarnos pronto. Saludos!

We were gifted with repeated wonderful birding experiences. Particularly memorable was watching a toucan feeding on a a just caught anole, flocks of screeching parrots, and two tribes of spider monkeys rumbling in the canopy. Our guide was ver knowledgeable, and efficient, quickly setting up his spotting scope and helping us take pics with our cell phone camera thru his scope. Imho, the hanging bridges are an experience to not miss!
