We took a guided tour. This is a dry rain forest, but we went during the rainy season, so it was more similar to a rain forest. The forest had been cut down for mangos, but they are working to bring it back. Not far...More

Definitely recommend. Bioluminescence tour is amazing!! Unique accommodation surrounded by wildlife. Snorkelling at isla tortugas is a great day trip too!
