We booked this tour because of its title, Birding Tour and because Braulio Carrillo National Park got very good reviews in our Costa Rica travel book. However, that day all the birds had gone somewhere else as had all of the animals except bullet ants. We saw very few birds flying at a great distance from one of the viewing platforms and a couple of toucans at the very tops of trees, so high that you only saw them if they flew. On a more positive note, our guide, Jorge, was knowledgeable about plants and the rain forest generally and very friendly and helpful. The aerial gondola ride was very nice, and the butterfly garden, snake and frog exhibits were interesting. I was really hoping to see a quetzal and an umbrellabird, listed as very prominent in the park in my Open Roads Guide Book. But Jorge was very discouraging about that and rightly so. Our driver from San Jose was on time and also gave us some information during the ride to the park, which took far longer than expected, given the 12 miles stated in the same book. Overall this excursion was a letdown, since we saw no animals or birds, somewhat counterbalanced by our guide and the views from the gondola and the platforms.
