This is what Thomas Christoffer has to said:

“Hello, the tour was great! Thank you for getting us in touch with Juan. He was a great guide. It feels like he has a sixth sense for spotting crocodiles, luckily he showed them to us ;-). At the start of our 5 day trip we told him as a joke that we would like to see many monkeys, crocodiles, snakes, sloths and iguanas and what happened? He found them all, together with frogs, a little turtle and many birds. Thanks again for your help. Best Thomas and Barbara”

Depending on timing you may expend the night at the Familiar hostel, right at the river bank of the Indio River, close to the river port were the public transportation boat arrive and depart.

The return trip could be in one of the public transport boat, about 8 hour trip back to San Carlos or ride back in a small motor boat with the guide, about 11 hours to El Castillo.
