Luck of the Draw

The jungle was beautiful to walk through at night! It just so happens that there had been little rain when we were there so the frogs weren't as frequent. We did get to see some snakes, spiders, etc. Did see one red eye frog and the guide got good pictures for us.

We are very glad you enjoyed the tour and the jungle.
We hope that the pictures will be the best souvenir of the trip.
Best night tour

Guide was great, informative & helpful lots of frogs and snakes. Be careful thir everywhere. I took pictures of frogs didn't see snake until I went through photos. It was hidden from view under plants.
Guide carries snake, pole moves plants so you get a better look at animals. I have done a couple of night tours this was the best

Our tour guide was amazing and helped us see tons of snakes, frogs, plants, and other wildlife! We had an amazing time and we were recommended a great spot to eat dinner after. Definitely recommend this tour to see lots of frogs and other wildlife.
