We didn't stay at their hotel facilities, but we heard about the Bat Program tour. At first I thought it was a bit expensive, but at the conclusion of the tour I was sold. Our guide was able to switch between English and Spanish with...More

We hated to lose a whole day to transferring, so we added the Tirimbina Chocolate Tour on at the last minute before departing from Peace Lodge to Tabacon. We were thrilled! OVERVIEW You will check in at the front desk, and a guide will lead...More

My wife and I did the chocolate tour and it didn't disappoint. We showed up a little late and our tour guide was waiting for us at the checkin. Make sure you ask for a map when you check in for the chocolate tour so...More

We decided to make a day of it here, so we walked some of the lovely trails in the morning, had a sandwich in the restaurant at lunchtime and then joined the 'chocolate Tour' in the afternoon. Thoroughly enjoyed every part of the day. Great...More

We stayed on premises in a basic but functional lodge room which I recommend to fully experience this place. We hiked trails through the natural forest with an experienced naturalist who explained the environment in ways we would never have known on our own. In...More
