Thank you so very much to our guides Orlando and Lorena and our driver, Roberto!!
Waiting for us with smiles, our tour began with a stop at a local produce market where we were given a tour of the property and Orlando pointed out and explained the native plants and birds there. To our surprise, once we boarded the van, we were given a bowl of delicious tropical fruit!
On our way to the forest, we traveled through scenic areas where we learned about the bountiful banana plantations. Once we arrived at the "chocolate" forest, Lorena provided us with a very fascinating tour that included medicinal plants, flowers, trees, animals, a little history on the Mayan culture, and ultimately, delicious hand-made chocolate!! Enchanting!!
Our adventure then took us to the beautiful Cahuita National Park where Orlando guided us on a little adventure along the beach where we saw coconut trees, native plants, birds, iguanas and sloths--sooo much fun!!
Again many, many thanks for this amazing journey!
