  • One of the reserves that are most worth visiting Costa Rica. What makes it special is that in addition to knowledge of the flora and fauna of the Guide, you wrapped in the stories and legends of the indigenous people throughout the tour and explained interesting curiosities.

The taste is exquisite and you learn to appreciate because it is the fruit of the gods.
