“very nice”

Very interesting. Several species of plants, insects and birds are only found in this mountain range. By all means use a guide. They know the details and where to find the things you would want to see. Otherwise you will be playing nature's version of...More

Great guides, fun and knowledgable,great activity if you have younger kids, older ones might not be as interested. I found the new and old growth very interesting to observe.

The experience you have will depend on the guide that you get to escort round the forest. All the guides are extremely informative but some are more enthusiastic than others. The humming bird gallery in the near by coffee shop is a must.

The day that we visited the "Cloud Forest" it was that, cloudy. From the train ride to the lookout and return it was great to see that these owners have invested so much into making this an experience that you probably will not see again....More

Don´t get me wrong, the staff was great and everything, but there is nothing original about this train tour (aside from the fact that you are on a train). The only interesting thing to see is a nice spot where you can see (if it...More

On the surface this seemed like too much of a 'tourist' thing for us to do. It would be a mistake to miss this if you have kids. The train takes you through various parts of the cloud forest with a knowledgable guide. At the...More
