Visit the tarantulas way with me together at night to explore the rain forest from Cahuita. Bird-eating spiders, frogs, bats and many insects with warranty. Listen the night sounds of nature on a leisurely stroll through a Zoo without fences. This is certainly an exciting and enjoyable experience for your vacation.
