  • beautiful excursion in the forest, not difficult at all to climb (I'm 47) you can see a lot of bird, and beautiful blue butterfly (morpho) to do, it's worth the trip.

  • For people who love nature and spend a day outside the city, in a relaxing atmosphere, beautiful and full of adventures, this is the perfect place. It is a charming, magical place without agglomeration of people. I could say many good things, but it is better to live the experience. Unforgettable!

  • Very nice ... River has some nice rapids worth giving it a try... Went with jungle river tours who did an excellent job
  • Only ent for a 4h hike and saw awesome waterfalls. I recommend it but not jungle eco lodge. I'd go with Omega if I would do it again.
  • I kinda don't want to tell you anything about this place... It sucks, I swear. Don't bother. Leave it all for me, please! (It's phenomenal).
  • Very nice Lodge in the Honduran Jungle.
  • Beautiful!
