The drive has some beautiful sections and you can see a wide variety of trees. I would only recommend it if you needed to use it to get somewhere, otherwise it is not worth the travel.

It is a nice drive through the rain forest. There are no animals, maybe the odd donkey but that's it. I wouldn't go out of my way to see this but we were passing through on our way to somewhere.

The views are stunning, the roads are challenging but it's so worth it! The best tip we were given was never drive through a puddle as you do not know how deep it is!!
