This was fun, but be prepared for a lot of physical activity paddling around the lake.
This was fun, but be prepared for a lot of physical activity paddling around the lake. Also, if it is raining, you might not see much wildlife. Still, it was educational and my kids liked it quite a bit.

We first did jeep tour which was so off the beaten path that all we experiencd was rough,very bumpy road and saw only brush. When we got to canoeing we could not hear guide's instructions(she needed a mike) and we were rushed to finish a delightful snack and view for a "nature walk" which lasted 10 min. Many of us skipped the walk to take our time eating etc. Read Less

An absolute WASTE of a LOT of money at best, downright fraudulent at worst!! A hundred yards or so of paddling in a massive oversized canoe, in which the highlight is hearing your yell echo. 'Nature walk through the rainforest' was about 50 -75 yards and maybe 5 minutes. A rushed cup of (GREAT) clam chowder and then you paddle back. Wow. Read Less
