This a very good place to visit if you like to practice photography. It's surrounded of nature and it's a very fresh place.

Incredible beauty! The giant bamboo is really something special, all the different plants and trees transport you the rainforest. Make sure you bring your camera. When you first arrive, buy some food for the turtles. Super cool experience.

At $1.25 admission, this is a bargain. Prepare yourself for mosquitos, there is slow moving water, and you're sure to leave with at least a couple bites if you are uncovered.
