Just came from Mashpi. It is truly a unique place. The hotel is Amazing. The food is Awesome. We went on several guided hikes which were great but could be tough for some who aren't used to strenuous activity. There is a hummingbird and a butterfly area which are really breathtaking. Lots of wildlife too. You will love it!!
