  • Really beautiful area and well designed! Our favorite party was the butterfly pavilion! The monkeys and Coati were also very cool. I didn’t do the zip line but it looked cool.

  • Really liked the place, even though its quite expensive. Cool "jungle" walks, with the bridges and waterfall. Beach acess also pretty nice. Is walkable from the city.
  • Beautiful and well taken care of. Definitely don't take the bridges if you're not somewhat in shape and not too afraid of heights. It is a bit pricey if you have a bigger family
