"We really enjoyed the entire trip, both sites. Most especially, the people at both Asa Wright and Cuffie. Mukesh, Charron & Roodal were expert guides for us! Every excursion was top notch. A favorite was the ending of our Blanchisseuse day...when a dizzying amount of birds had our heads swiveling! Lilac tailed parrotlets, Blue-headed parrots, Black tailed Tityra, Crimson crested Woodpecker & many more! Such fun!"
