  • Great tour guide of the river. Saw over 20 crocodiles, howler monkeys, white face monkeys, the largest storks. Also, the lunch was very tasty. We then did the rum tour which was very good. Take home your own bottle of rum after mixing spices and aromatics.
  • Beautiful Hacienda and our visit was great. All of the staff were so kind and made you feel welcomed. We saw many Crocodiles, monkeys and iguanas.
