Excellent rain forest, sloth, birds, monkey and other wildlife and plans were amazing! Very well-done and appeared to be a safe environment for both the plants and animals that live there! Also great teaching opportunity for all - young and old alike!

I agree better to keep it in Hotel. The lockers are smaller so your bags might not fit in. You can keep the same in central station as well.
