  • Nice surroundings and lush meadows to go horse riding or ride a quad, but entry price is too dear
  • It's a Great place to see our colonial architecture! 💖
  • A great spot to visit w family or friends in a tour trip. Bring mosquitos lotion.
  • It's a lovely site, 30mins plus chill out time
  • We rode horses down a ten minute trash filled path. Not fun. Or horses didn't have fun either.
