I stayed in Room 26, and was able to see a bunch of howler monkeys, go on a trail, walk on the hanging bridge. They have a seating area in the restaurant where we can take pictures of birds eating.The car parking is secure.

We just did the tour and really enjoyed it. The captain would point out wildlife and then get the boat close so we could take photographs. Saw three species of monkeys, some nice birds, and a croc!
