Upgrade Completed; But still a work in progress!

Hello travelers!

As you can see, we upgraded our forums on Wednesday Oct 15th. We're back up and running, but we are still a work in progress! We'll be renaming things and creating an all around better experience. In the meantime, you can use the forums (the functionality is extremely similar to what you are used to). We hope to be finished tweaking things very shortly. Thank you for your patience; it is appreciated!

  • Saraquipi vs. Tortuguero?

    Tortuguero sounds quite amazing, but is Sarapiqui's Carribean-side ecosystem a clear step down in terms of wildlife experiences? We've read about the Sarapiqui area - Isla la Heliconias, Rara Avis, La Selva Biological Station, kayak jungle tours, etc - and it sounds like you can get pretty far off the beaten track and that there's lots and lots of wildlife. I ask because it seems like Tortuguero will easily be more expensive, maybe quite a bit more, and there won't be turtles to see when we're there in Feb. That said, we're up for paying a reasonable amount more *if* the wildlife experience and/or the place itself is clearly superior. On a scale of 1-10, what would you rate them for wildlife experiences? If you don't know both places well, but know someone who does, could you refer me?
