I went with a couple friends from Honduras. They really enjoyed the tour and left with some fruit. I had a hard time enjoying myself because of the mosquitos. Even though I was doused in mosquito repellant, I was getting bit. I would recommend the...More

It was fun to go with my two year old son. We heard many birds and the trees are beautiful. Trails are not stroller friendly. The place is not very well kept but being inside the forrest is amazing. Lots of mosquito repellent.

Good park to go for a stroll. But the types of plants and the way it is all laid out is very very average. They shouldn't charge as much as they do, not at all. Maybe it was because I was American though. Felt like...More
