Myself my husband and our 2 children age 9 and 12 went with 2 other adult friends. It was a long day! The ranch is well maintained and the staff was very welcoming! I appreciate the team for assisting with my kids because both of them stopped on the last zip line. The food was yummy and the margaritas were a hit! Must do! The horse ride was a little long and for forst time riders it can get uncomfortable. Overall a must do tour!

Yesterday’s trip to the Botanical Gardens was fantastic! We highly recommend it to others. Our Guide Ed was SO friendly, knowledgeable & you can tell he loves his vocation & sharing his culture & that of this beautiful place. Natural born teacher. He really showed us a good & memorable great time! Mucho Gracias!
