Our guide Jascha, who is part of the family that owns the property and runs the tours, was an ideal companion - perfectly bilingual, very knowledgeable about trees and wildlife, and a great dry sense of humour.
Kids aged 5-9 and parents too had such a great time - glad we picked a small family run operation like Wingnuts - and the kids went back to school raving that the zipline was the highlight of their Costa Rica trip.

Our three (grown) children took surfing lessons with Eloy and went kayaking and snorkeling with Rodrigo.
We ended up having the dry forest/mango plantation tour to ourselves, a family of four, and Berny customized the hike to accommodate our five-year-old and patiently answered a million questions we've had.
