  • After a week of real heat came the day of our visit to Tirimbina, dawned the day raining so appreciated since the temperature is quite suavizo and allowed us to see the forest with another perspective. A marvel of routes... with a few impressive bridges, all kinds of vegetation and birds and even find a blue beautiful jeans (frog). A refreshing place that leaves a feeling of wanting to return.. .ojala someday! The people who work there very friendly.
