We really liked the history behind this place. We loved seeing the process of making sugar cane syrup. we also thought it was neat how they showed us the process of making tortillas. The food was good but not exceptional. And that's why I only received four stars. If you love history though it is really worth the experience.
We enjoyed ourself here. The spot was a bit hard to get to as the dirt road was a bit far. Highly recommend taking the tour here instead of driving there yourself unless you have an SUV. We were lucky enough to get on a private boat tour and enjoyed looking at wildlife. We caught white-faced monkeys, iguanas and lots of different birds. We also enjoyed the buffet here was yummy. It was nice to relax here while surrounded by lush forest.
