  • We had a great time in this tropical discovery tour. Very well maintained. It's here for those interested. To complete this tour we went to eat in his restaurant Pan (to advise to taste the local cuisine, with a very good reception).

  • This tiny jewel of a garden is worth every second it took for us to find it. Beautifully manicured property with meandering paths that provide well signed plants, original locales and sources. There is a beautiful waterfall (part man made), jumbo koi ponds where you can feed them. At the end there is goat petting zoo. Once you arrive they have a automated ticketing machine that takes Credit cards to avoid lineups. After the main entrance and past the giant koi pond, aim left to the small aviary where you will be greeted by free parrots looking for cups of syrup. They loved being neck scratched like a cat. Lovely day out. Expect a minimum of one hour to see the basics.
