We too visited from a cruise ship, this is a special place, our guide was very knowledgeable with good English. We viewed snakes (captive!), took a beautiful walk through the butterfly house, looked at frogs and toads, and were lucky enough to see several gorgeous wild sloths. The aerial tramway ride is stunning as you ride above the rainforest canopy. At the bottom are two short and easy walks, one on the level and the other up and down steps to a small waterfall. Also great for bird life, all in fabulous rainforest scenery...... What's not to like?
