We took our family including 2 "tweeners" and we loved this visit. We saw a sloth, so many birds and a ton of amphibians, including the blue jeans poisonous frog which are likely hard to find as they're only an inch long! Loved it!
thanks for the visit! we hope you could recomend us to others! greetings!
