Amazing! Beautiful rainforest walking path with friendly guide, Rafael, providing overview of the plants, frogs, and birds. Then to another hiking trail to a flowing river. Recommend water shows to wade into the cold water if you are not adventurous enough to jump or swing into the deeper water. Finally a stop at a sandy clear warm water beach with a row of restaurants, bars, and shops.

Educational and entertaining. Unique architecture and interesting history. Francisco, our guide was knowledgeable and humorous in English and Spanish. He answered our questions regarding local culture and provided recommendations for food and events for the reminder of our stay.
