I took a day tour here. There is several impressive waterfalls here and if you enjoy wildlife you will enjoy the Jaguars, cougars, birds, snakes, sloths and more here.

No, you don't take the same stairs going back as you will end at a different section of the tour. Yes, the bus will take you back at the original entrance when you came in. Enjoy!
