    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. When you get to the tasting of cocoa make you be part of the process from the tree. The taste of the fruit is amazing and the dynamics of the process is very funny. The taste is exquisite and you learn to appreciate because it is the fruit of the gods.

    This tour is very interesting and informative, but also, and above all, fun. Guide Carilna knows and tells much, it would be a good student. the route over the walkway, through the tropical rain forest make the walk extra interest. In addition, cocoa has no secrets for us!
