  • We had a wonderful time visiting this place. The drive there from Jaco was easy. We got some heavy rain once there and it made our tour even more epic. I learn a lot, very interesting. It was a lovely surprise to come here. Wish I had bought more spices.
  • Tour is short if you're looking for a quick afternoon or morning activity. The grounds are very pretty. Make sure you take cash, however; they don't have a credit card reader.
