Try them from the hands of smiling agricultures proud to share their crops with our visitors.The climate ranges from hot and dry (mid-November to April) to hot and humid, during the rainy season (the rest of the year).Most of these naturalist guides, the most professional in the country, have been with this company for more than 10 years. Many are specialists in birds, plant life, or archaeology.Once you try the soft and fresh tastes of the tropics you will be taken to the wild side.
