Carlos was a world class guide. We saw 56 species, in which 42 are lifers for me! His bird calling skills, and knowledge of the terrain were instrumental to our success. Carlos shared the entire list with me via eBird and also shared all his photos. He actually helped me with my camera to get better photos. Above and beyond! We even stopped and had REAL tacos! His driver Miguel was wonderful. The whole experience was to notch.
