This was a real treat. The two of us shared a boat with our guide Rosi, who for the next 2.5 hours gave us a great tour of the river and wetlands. We saw very many birds, a few Cayman and lizards, iguanas. Rosi was very knowledgeable, the tour was calm and well paced. Rosi provides us with fruit and water. It was one of the highlights of our three week trip to Costa Rica.
Rosi was a knowledgeable and accommodating guide. She certainly knows her birds and, most importantly, the area. As we were leaving the dock, she described the plan for the tour and asked us what we wanted to see. When we answered, Roseate Spoonbill, she said other direction and turned the boat around. We saw the spoonbill. Along the way, she knew where owls were nesting and took us ashore to see them The list of birds was countless. They use a small boat so you can go into narrower channels. Rosi and her husband are nurturing their property to become a nature preserve. Far better to do this than joining the van loads from La Fortuna.
