Our boat captain and tour guide, Dave Goodman, on a wonderful private one week charter on Bel Ami showed us this area. The great house ruins and nearby sugar mill are well worth seeing.

The nature trail was small and poorly maintained. The tropical birds looked miserable and the stench from their cages was sick. Not worth our time or money.

Not only it's very small. There are several bird cages with birds that are definitely not happy. No place, to many and it just. It right. You don't get a receive when you pay and it's just a waste of time. Very disappointing!
