I spent 1 day at El Copal Reserve and it was incredible, the food, birds, the building; everything was very nice. I'll definitely recommend this place, and I'll spent more time with my family there.

Wonderful remote location with great hiking trails. Owner spent time sharing knowledge of the development of this eco-reserve. Basic accommodation, very clean, friendly and great food.
