It was a very nice place to visit. The people there are very knowledgable. It's worth what we paid but watch out for the mosquitoes.

The three of visited for the first time. Had an excellent guided tour through the old preserved building. The guide presented a super perspective of the previous living conditions. Then, had another excellent guide and tour through the gardens and tropical vegetation. Excellent one hour tour.

This was very unexpected - a small, no frills, basic tour and retail shop. Good guide with info and knowledge. Nothing fancy here but enjoyable. We even saw female and male chameleons which the guides pointed out and allowed guests to hold.
