This was just down the hill from the cloud forest and our guide recommended it for ice cream. Are we ever glad he did. A wide variety of flavors, very tasty. Besides ice cream they also sold cheese (go figure) as well as mild, some...More

We visited hoping to do the tour, but were told twice that they no longer do it. Either we were in the wrong place, or they just don't do it any longer. Good ice cream.
