"Take care of your guides" Costa Rica Local Custom Tip by zrim
Costa Rica Local Customs: 85 reviews and 79 photos
Most people would not have a chance to see some of the great wildlife if not for the excellent guides. These guys grew up exploring the various nooks and crannies of their locales. And as adults they spend their days in and about the forests, so they know where the wildlife is lurking. Invaluable!
But they generally get paid very little by the big companies. So take care of them. They work hard, they shrug off insensitive tourists with a smile.
This is a photo of Fernando, our guide in Tortuguero. He had the eyes of a hawk. The build of an elephant. And the demeanor of a kitten.
