"This was an amazing trip. Our tour guides Cami and Edu made us feel welcome and were very knowledgeable and patient. From making amazing meals at our camping ground to trekking to the top of Cerro Cabras, our experience was phenomenal. We had a couple of pleasant surprises during our adventure. But one of the most memorable was trekking with an incredible view when all of a sudden we got massive snow flakes descending upon us. It was magical. "
"A great group of guides who were very friendly, knowledgeable, and fun! Food, lodging, wildlife, and activities were all excellent. Guides were bilingual, and my wife (who doesn't speak Spanish) and I had an amazing experience thanks to both the people and the beautiful setting. I highly recommend taking a tour, or camping, with CanalFun!"
