The tours arranged by the lodge were fun and well organized. All...

If you want a jungle tour with the comfort of hot water, pool, electricity and first class kitchen, for around $500 for three days and two nights. In stead of a week living like a hobo for $ 250. Then Heleconia is an easy choice. Family freandly, but dont bring your very young children to the jungle excursions please. They...
