  • 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.

  • Q80 for the basic entrance which includes the paths, bridges, butterfly dome, waterfall, beach. I think it's well worth it and a very beautiful area! The only downside is there's a lot of trash around the river and at the base of the waterfall, it would be great if that could be better maintained.
  • Beautiful small hotel with individual rooms built around the rocks with bamboo and wood. Nice trails that come free with the stay as well as a butterfly room. Nice waterfall to visit.
