Very interesting and enjoyable experience. A visit to BriBri indigenous village was educational and authentic experience. You get introduced to various medicinal plants used by the tribe through generations, you can see various frogs at site and can participate in process Of making chocolate. A really great day and afterwards you can refresh in the waterfall nearby.

We took a wonderful cooking class with 2 remarkable women, Grace and Gloria. Carribean rice and beans, chicken, plantains, salad, star fruit juice, all in a cabana and cooked in cast iron over an open flame. Fun, educational and delicious. What could be better?!?!!!!
