We have used Andres Alvarado http://forestalive1.blogspot.com/ twice and were very satisfied with his vast knowledge, excellent English and reasonable prices. He lives in Monteverde but can guide also elsewhere.

Another vote for Lenin at La Selva - glad to hear he's still guiding! It's been several years since we were there - and many guides and many places later - many with more years of experience too - but I will NEVER forget how fast Lenin was on those birds. He saw it and bam his scope was on it - it was amazing! He never missed. Young and handsome too. . .

Thanks xelas and glover.

Not sure about hiring a guide better than me (ego problem) and more handsome and younger too! Maybe I should leave my wife at home!

To balance out the skiting above I had a night recently with only three species of possums, no tree-kangaroos and only one species of bandicoot in three hours.

Your posts fill a much needed void.

Thank you Kinkazote.

Back to skiting again. Had Wonderful views of a Tree-roo a couple of nights ago. She sat there eating and ignored our presence for about 8 minutes. Then she moved close to the trunk, had a good scratch and tried to snooze; her tail between her legs and nose on toes. Every now and then one eye would open, "Are you still there?"

Normal reaction for a watched Tree-roo is to stare
and stare,
and stare,
and stare,
and stare,
and stare,
and stare,
and stare,
and stare,
and stare,
and stare,
and stare,
and stare,
... I think you get the picture.
