Jason was a Great Guide
Kenneth_W, Apr 2023
Jason was a fantastic guide and led us straight to the Quetzals - we would never have found them by ourselves. He knew their recent habitat and by listening for their call quickly located one. Later in the morning he took us to a nesting location and with his spotting scope we were able to get fantastic videos of the Quetzals going to and coming from the nests. He was very helpful, interesting to listen to, and knew great places for breakfast and lunch.
