We did the night tour here, and the tour guide was great. He told us he has been doing it for 20 years, and it was really obvious that he has a passion for the park. He was also extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He even showed us how to take good photos in the dark using your cellphones. The tour itself was also very well done. It took a little over 2 hours. During that time, we were able to see frogs, pit vipers, spiders, crickets, and bunch of other things. I would recommend; especially if it's a rainy day and you're still looking for something you can do outdoors.
It was awesome. Lots of bridges to cross and some great views. It can easily take at least an hour and a half. And it's important to wear hiking or at least athletic shoes. Some spots were steep. It was raining when I went. Good idea to travel light and to wear light weight clothes underneath any poncho as you can quickly get overheated.
