Peaceful Cloud Forest
"This nature reserve is a beautiful peaceful cloud forest, I truly enjoyed my stay. While I was there I got to do a variety of things such as; bird surveying, butterfly surveying, planting new saplings, painting, and clearing areas to help the new trees grow. It is communal living, sleeping in basic dorms, which can take a little getting used to but you meet so many interesting people and one day a week everyone make a meal for a communal dinner. The showers are warm and there is Internet. If you like hiking and birding (so many hummingbirds) then this is the place to be."- Gaia Wilson
