This is an easy walk for all ages. The weather was complicated at first with heavy downpour, but it was all well managed by our guide and we knew this time of the year it's rainy in San Jose. We were able to see many interesting plants (from which we even tasted some!), some birds and fortunately we did find sloths! The guides will talk about culture, art and mostly nature. This is an awesome experience to start your journey through Costa Rica.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. My guide, Charly the botanist was very knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy answering all questions. He carried a small telescope for good viewing which makes a huge difference when looking at something high in a tree. We saw three sloths, many types of birds, leaf cutter ants, a beautiful large spider and her tiny mate and lots of plants. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone.
We had a fantastic time with Marcelo. Not only did we see all the animals expected (birds, sloths, even leafcutter ants), but Marcelo went out of his way to provide interesting explanations and equipment to make sure we got the most out of our experience (binoculars ans telescope). We were delighted with our experience and definitely recommend it as one of the best things to do in San Jose!
I ended missing the original schedule due to a flu, but Carlos the biologist, was able to let me in on a tour on Sunday. I was a bit down since I wanted to check the Butterfly Farm a lot, which is closed on Sundays. None the less the experience was great, we focus more on birds, sloths and the arquitecture of the Campus. We ended up seing at least 15 tropical bird species and 3 sloths!!
J'ai eu l'occasion de faire le tour au campus de San José et cela s'est très bien passé ! Chelo a été très ouvert à nos questions, a su nous présenter les plantes, les animaux avec une grande connaissance et ce fut très instructif ! N'hésitez pas à y aller, c'est très intéressant de visiter des réserves urbaines !
