I visit the reserve alone and just spent a great day sitting at the shores of the lake in such a peaceful location. The area was clean and well maintained.

We went for the hike and zipline , it was a blast. It was the longest one I have ever been on. We had a great time , saw some monkeys . Do the extreme zipline, you won’t regret it.

Some beautiful parts to the reserve; the butterfly dome is wonderful and we saw monkeys. However it is somewhat polluted.

What a great walk you'll have there! It's not very touristy either, at least we got to walk pretty much on our own and we totally loved it. It's beautiful, you'll see butterflies and monkeys as well!
