Not much to this. Ok for young kids as far as animal feeding. Kids don't care much about trees etc and it was very hard to hear the guide for adults to appreciate the narration.

This was just the right kind of break from the surf and sand. Enjoyed feeding the “wild” pigs, and chickens. Good info on the fruits and plants. I would do this again. Good value for 1.5 hour excursion.

We loved riding the train and learning about the various plants grown on the island. Feeding the wild pigs, chickens, and the donkey were fun too.
