What to Expect
Be ready for an unforgettable experience! While you walk into the forest, you will wonder about the exotic vegetation. Most of the trees are covered with mosses, lichens, bromeliads, orchids and other plants that cascade from the branches of these gigantic trees creating a backdrop for life in the jungle.

We will spot many different species of birds from the 384 species we have in this area. Some examples are hummingbirds, tanagers, owls, and toucans.

Our professional naturalist tour guides will use their sharp senses to spot animals such as white faced monkeys and howler monkeys, sloths, iguanas, snakes, poisonous frogs, and numerous other different types of animals that you will be able to observe in this tour.

You will also learn about medicinal plants and the natural history of this natural paradise, and you will have the opportunity to learn interesting facts about our Afro-Caribbean customs.
