Customer Travel Tip: If you go to the Casa del Arbol, get the public bus for $1 at 2pm. It's the cheapest way to get there and if it turns out you can't see much due to the weather, at least you won't have wasted $20 on a taxi or a tour.

Liked: Weather, scenery, range of activities and tourist friendly facilities.

Disliked: Only the overpriced tourists restaurants. It was quite tricky to find the cheaper places where the locals eat.
