Very interesting. Several species of plants, insects and birds are only found in this mountain range. By all means use a guide. They know the details and where to find the things you would want to see. Otherwise you will be playing nature's version of...More

The experience you have will depend on the guide that you get to escort round the forest. All the guides are extremely informative but some are more enthusiastic than others. The humming bird gallery in the near by coffee shop is a must.

On the surface this seemed like too much of a 'tourist' thing for us to do. It would be a mistake to miss this if you have kids. The train takes you through various parts of the cloud forest with a knowledgable guide. At the...More
