Know Your Nature

“The guides were extremely knowledgeable. Jose took us on the medicinal tour (fascinating!), during which he treated my daughter’s stomach ailment with kaopectate tree sap, and took her to a calamine tree for her ant bite. Both remedies did the job! With Edwin we hiked to the waterfalls, where we learned about the primary versus the secondary forest, and about the various animals we encountered en route.”
