Great tour guide of the river. Saw over 20 crocodiles, howler monkeys, white face monkeys, the largest storks. Also, the lunch was very tasty. We then did the rum tour which was very good. Take home your own bottle of rum after mixing spices and aromatics.
This place is spectacular, and the process of rum making is SO delicate and intricate. The staff is warm hearted and welcoming. Roberto gave the most captivating tour on the farm, answering all the questions we could possibly come up with. The lunch is exquisite and the rum is gastronomic and beyond comparison. I highly recommend going here for the guided tour, a rum tasting and a lunch.
