Punctual pick-up, friendly driver and guide, safe driving trip; very good boat tour with excellent explanations; Drive to the viewing platform also good as well as the small center for sloths

During the week, lunch is not at the water's edge but in a hotel. Otherwise everything was very well organized.

We liked the boat tour best. But you don't run through the rainforest yourself.
