Epic Santa Ana Hike with the Wonderful Alfredo
Francesca_F, June 2022
I highly recommend the Santa Ana hike with Alfredo. Expect an early morning hike with the privilege of experiencing the cloud forest and natural wonders of Santa Ana on a private tour, beating the afternoon heat and crowds. Alfredo is a knowledgeable and attentive guide with passion for the land and country. It was a true pleasure to get to know Alfredo. Also, be sure to ask about his mom's pupuseria! 10/10
