I love the variety of trails, the peaceful feel of all the trails. Some of the trails have some good size hills if you're looking for a workout. Its a wonderful place to walk and enjoy being outdoors.

Lovely hike on well marked and nicely groomed trails, with limited mosquitos attacks. Don't know how they do it!

Kind and helpful staff, interesting artwork and architecture. The food is something unique, perhaps that's part of the experience. I did not get to explore the outside or other facilities yet. Next trip.

This is a real hidden gem. There is a good amount of trails for hiking (around 10 to 15 miles total) and it has a play area for kids. Very educationally minded programs with an emphasis on conservation.
