Heleconia Island was our last stop before heading back home. And it was just the best place to finish a great holiday. The owners have the most amazing garden with loads of different Heliconias but also with numorous bird species, a large group of Howler monkeys and all sorts of other animals.
We walked the garden together with Carolien (owner) and we it was just jaw dropping beautifull. We even saw a baby Toucan leaning out of it's nest for the first time. And the number of Hummingbirds is just endless.
The rooms were very clean, the beds very nice and although the traffic could be heard it was at a very low noise level. And if you want to take a dip in the pool, you'll have to jump in the river, which is fine. The Caymans are further downstream, so no encounters with them.
