Much enjoyed hiking all the trails of this reserve (about 2 hours); good mixture of habitats, one trail leads down to a creek, great views of deep forest areas, saw coatis, many birds, and butterflies.

Really nice small private reserve - we spotted plenty of birds here. Hummingbirds were just gorgeous.

Amazing things to see and learn. Best to get a guide, though. I highly recommend Oscar with Nasua Tours.
