Mangrove/Churute/Cacao Experience

, Feb 2020
There were certainly some highlights to the day but unfortunately some significant downsides. First, when we called to confirm pick/up time, we were told the guide was coming an hour earlier than scheduled (which fortunately they were able to change. Second, we had paid for a full-day tour for 6 adults and they had us down for a half-day tour - which also got changed. The guide arrived driving a car that was not big enough for six adults who would be in the car for over 2 hours(had a small folding 3rd seat). Unfortunately, nothing could be done about that. The boat ride that was scheduled thru the mangroves didn’t happen because the boat never showed up after waiting a LONG time. On the upside, we did enjoy our walk through the Churute reserve and the cacao farm tour.
