  • Beautiful jungle. Seeing the monkeys was incredible. It's a 4 mile hike so be prepared. Hiking boots help tremendously and increase safety. Some drops on the trail are 70 meters plus. Moderate level.....  more

  • My hostel booked me a walking tour with Alejandro the night before and I was told I was doing the tour with other two people and to be ready at 8 am. The next day Alejandro never show up at the hostel, at 8:30 I told the person at the front desk to call him to find out what happened and when she called Alejandro he told her “the other two people who booked the same tour canceled so I can’t not do it with only with one person” so it wasn’t profitable for him to do the tour with one person, which I understand, but he never called he just left me there waiting. Fortunately there was an other tour agency kind enough to wait for me at the town center do to the same tour that morning. I extended my stay in Filandia one extra day just to do this tour. Later on I was told Alejandro constantly do this to people and other agencies have to pick up after him. If you are reading this please booked your tour with the bigger agency at the town which is more responsible so you secure your spot on the tour.
  • I did a walking tour through the reserve with Alejandro and he was very knowledgable and showed me different plants, animals and spotted a big family of howler monkeys, despite the rain :-) Both Alejandro and Alvaro are very passionate about the mission and I enjoyed my time around the finca a lot.
