Well worth a visit, though perhaps one night rather than two would have been more appropriate. With a car easy to get to, without difficult to leave. I waited 1hr 30mins for a bus at the end of the path on the main road for a bus, which should have turend up after 10 minutes. It was pouring down with rain. The garden was beautiful, and Carolien's tour enthuiastic and informative. I learned so much about helonicas, and saw toucans, howler monkeys , sloths and a variety of birds, which came to visit at breakfat. Large, airy rooms and bathroom, very clean, but rather over priced. But a very enjoyable stay.
