Termales, rainforest and the zoo were ok, but nothing overly interesting, the shopping part was not worth a stop-over.

Just a simple small town with lots of handicrafts and a hot spring bath location. Nice and quiet with quaint, unsophisticated good restaurants.

I wish one of the three people congregated around the cash box had offered to provide a tour. There is a lot of El Valle artifacts, some hundreds of years old, some contemporary. The $1 admission is fair. It is located immediately to the left of the church.

The garden walkway into the Museum is lovely. Just like my great grandmother's garden would have been. Charming and natural with a kind hand tending it. We were disappointed to find the Museum padlocked. The adjacent church was open, however and allowed a nice respite. The Nativity scene was still up and was so very pleasant to examine. There is...

David gave us a great guided tour where he explained where each of the pieces in the small museum came from. Very interesting.

We were fortunate enough to find David, the curator, who opened up the museum for us and showed us around. We found it extremely interesting for the tiny size. David (in his 70's) gave us the added bonus of climbing the huge mango tree outside the museum, and tossing us down some juicy ones.

Stopped to visit the museum three or four times and it was always locked. Probably staffed with volunteers, but perhaps the local hotel owners' association could pay to have someone keep it open.

I even had a hard time to find it....David the one who is taking care of was making me the small tour....I also used him as a guide in the Valle...It's pretty small, but worth the stop...The door is situated on the left side of the church...at the end...

They really need to add to this tiny museum - it is still worth a visit - pay as you can donations.
