We saw more birds by walking slowly around trails and roads around the resort between 6:30-11:00am. Bring binoculars.

My husband and I took the tram at 3:00. Guide was disinterested, not that knowledgeable and incredibly difficult to understand. She was a student studying ecological tourism. (Similar tours in other countries offered guides which have completed their education and speak better English.).

I don't love heights and was ok. The tram moves very slowly. The views are not scary - very peaceful and pretty.
