First: you can walk... The tour about 30dls for the boat has nonsense if you can go by yourself walking 15 minutes. Also the tour doesn't include activities with the community. When arriving to the community, they ask you money for everything!! For taking pictures,...More

They're just great. Great welcome, you can feel as part of the family as long as if you speak some Spanish. They organize nice tours in the jungle with a snake-expert. The lodging is modest, which is good because you feel in the jungle. The...More
