  • We had a wonderful time there today. Margarita was knowledgeable, friendly and easy going. We were not rushed from place to place but instead were given whatever time we needed to enjoy each animal, butterfly or plant. We got some marvelous shots. I wish I could share them here. If you enjoy butterflies, frogs, reptiles and all types of flora - put this on your “have to see” list.
  • Can be busy - one for "twitchers" really but some fantastic views of the volcano. Sandals ok but you will have to sign a disclaimer! Best keep the peace and wear some hiking shoes.
