Your fearless driver will show you two types of poisonous frogs and other variety of species that you may see on the journey. At a moment of the expedition we will reach the highest part of the mountain where you can walk to the great view point where you may see the nature on its totality along with the Banano River.

Then, you may cross a bridge of about 300 feet long on a middle height that goes through trees and will give you the chance of observing nature in a different view.

This tour offers you many opportunities for photos. Howler Monkeys, Sloths, Iguanas, Toucans and many other fascinating wildlife species are common to see during this tour.
