Had a fantastic day here birdwatching. It's an ideal place to see wildlife and a highlight was the Montezuma's Oropendula nesting colony.

The Gardens were largely a lovely walk with a collection of trees from all over the world. We enjoyed the walk with a naturalist in the rain.

I went with a couple friends from Honduras. They really enjoyed the tour and left with some fruit. I had a hard time enjoying myself because of the mosquitos. Even though I was doused in mosquito repellant, I was getting bit. I would recommend the...More
