  • We had a very nice time in Finca la Isla in Puerto Viejo. There are a lot of plants! A great justification of Allan , a plan we photographed and a booklet informing us what has been planted in each area. The botanical garden should be started with good shoes, a camera and well sprayed with insect spray. The entire walk takes about an hour. We bliben 3 hours there, had observed and discovered many animals by the way. At the end of the tour there was fruit and chocolate to eat and drink juice. The fruits we tried were partly new to me. Of course all harvested from the Botanical Garden. The chocolate was delicious. We'll talk to Allan for a long time. Allan is really knowledgeable and knows a lot about the plants. It was really fun to chat with him. He also seemed to have a deep appreciation for the Botanical Garden. It is important to him to take serious care of Costa Rica and the environment. Be sure to visit this place if plants mean anything to them.
