Wonderful Family Excursion!
Jill_E, Mar 2023
Our family group of 12 had a wonderful experience on this tour! The guides were extremely knowledgable, taking us up close to families of monkeys, crocs, iguanas and many varieties of birds. The lunch that followed was a treat as well - on an active family farm with great food, animals to visit, and craftspeople at work.
Take the early tour!!

The guides were incredibly knowledgeable! The Meal was fantastic. The pottery demonstration was interesting. The guides even stopped to point out a Macaw as we were driving!
Great Experience!
