“Paco Madrigal is by far the best guide we have ever had in our four visits to Costa Rica! It was great to see him again after we first had him as a guide at Selva Verde and La Selva 21 years ago as part of our first visit.”

-Rich and Margaret Griffith, 2016


“I wanted to see a Resplendent Quetzal much of my life, so I would have to say seeing 4-5 at one time was quite a highlight of the trip.”
-Jennifer Turner, 2016
