  • One of the best memories I'll have in my travels. The host lady, Edna...adorable, informative, well-defined. The site is of the utmost authenticity. She tells the whole story of the history of the site, and eventual property of her family. A lot if pride here. They have homemade cheese and jams for tasting with no sales pitch...but you CAN buy the products very affordable. Tour and a couple ample containers for under 10 bucks. Super stop!
  • Small-ish, but impressive collection of pre-columbian artifacts. Amazing jungle garden. I saw flowers I had never seen before! Fabulous
  • I highly recommend this neat place ~ the docent/owner was very knowledgeable and seemed very happy to share her place with us. Along with the archaelogical artifacts and dig, she gave us a tour of her land and the little rainforest jungle on her land.
  • I like the place. Love the history and the statues. Very tasty cheese and jam. 100% Recommend.
  • Too way out there but it does have my favorite coffee
