Miguel was a fantastic guide and is full of helpful info about horseback riding, the local fauna, and has a keen eye for birds and wildlife. He took great photos of our adventure and even took us out back to find the screaming Howler Monkeys! Thank you.

What a wonderful experience! I would highly recommend for booking! We all had an amazing time with Juan Carlos, he went above and beyond to accommodate us. The hike to the waterfall was a little rough for beginners like us but the overall experience was well worth it!
