I had an awesome omelette. It was a little pricey for breakfast, but not on par with what is expected outside a National Park.

We had a fabulous breakfast here - ok not the most modern environment or spotlessly clean and as it is in the middle of a rain forest you will always get bugs. If you have had a bad experience why do you go back.
