We were at Manuel Antonio last week and had a great morning tour with Edgar. He picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the park entrance. We were a family of four with two young children and he was so patient and kind with us. The hike is not a long distance (maybe 1 mile or so), but it took us 3.5 hours because of all of the stopping to see things.
Edgar spotted the most amazing things. My husband and I eventually got the giggles because he would spot a tiny grasshopper way up in a tree and show us in his spotting scope! Let's just say that the average daytripper who doesn't hire a guide is going to see diddly squat. These guys are trained professionals who know where to look, what you're seeing, and can answer any question you have about the flora and fauna of the area.
I highly recommend this company - we got to see monkeys (howler and white face), sloths (two toe and three toe), grass hoppers, Jesus Christ Lizards, iguanas, deer (one licked my five year old's hand!), blue morpho butterflies, etc. It was a lovely, albeit hot day and we had a great time!
