Heliconia island was the first stop in our 2 weeks CR tour. We chose the spot because we did not want to drive for long on the first day (still weary after a intercontinental flight). Heliconia prooved to be a good choiche. It's great for discovering the flora and fauna and to get into the right holliday groove. It is an excellent place for birdwatching. We wandered trough te garden ourselves and went for a swim in the river. Caroline was very helpfull and told us a lot about the place. She pointed out some of the animals and birds. The garden being such a unique selling point, a standard walk through the place would add to the stay. We, family with 2 young children, stayed in the familly appartment wich is spacious enough and fairly clean. The porch is very nice overlooking the garden. The kitchen only has a micro wave oven, (Caroline let us cook in her kitchen the second night). After 2 nights we were well rested and ready to move on.
