    Our tour guide Sergio did a good job sharing some of the history of Costa Rica on the way to the venue and once we got there. Although there was no breakfast offered as stated in the excursion description. Also, it was stated that we would visit a river to do some swimming, but since it was raining I figured that would not happen. In saying that, I did not see any river for this activity to even take place, so this is another potential aspect that is mentioned and was not included. I also would have liked to see more wildlife in a rainforest, but we only saw an anteater.

    森に囲まれたレストランで朝食。その後、ゴ ンドラで熱帯雨林を上空から30分程かけて 観察。ツカンを見れた。ゴンドラから降りて 、ジャングルの中の道なき道をガイドのデニ スに導かれ、ハイキング。登りがきついとこ ろもあるが、1時間半ほどで、川に到着。ピ クニックランチを楽しみ、 川で泳ぐ。爽快だ。帰り道は、あまりきつく 無く、珍しいカエルや昆虫、モルフォ蝶など を見ることが出来た。戻りのゴンドラからは 、珍しい種類のツカンも発見。ガイドのデニ スも2か月ぶりに見たとのこと。カマキリ先 生がモルフォ蝶を探しに訪れた場所。

    A great day trip. After an early start we were taken to the rainforest centre about an hour from San Jose and given a very nice breakfast, followed by a trip on the aerial tramway through the canopy. Then a hike through the forest in the company of two expert guides, who were extremely informative and interesting about everything we saw tapir, toucans and other birds, butterflies, and an incredible variety of trees and plants. Then lunch and a swim in the river and a hike back to the tramway. The walking is fine for the most part, though you need to be steady on your feet roots, wet leaves and after lunch there's quite a steep climb back. It's hard to think of a better way to see the rainforest.
