Imagine yourself after a day of adventure sitting in our enchanting open air dining room surrounded by strings of colored lights, beautifully arranged tropical flowers, sounds of the jungle, and a gentle tropical breeze. The friendly server brings you freshly squeezed juices, fresh breads, and your first of four delicious courses…

One of the many compliments we get (after the great tours) - is our amazing food. All of our packages include three full meals daily. We have a menu plus a daily featured meal.  We will happily accommodate special diets, allergies, vegetarians, and vegans (we can even cater to children’s finicky preferences). We also have a guest refrigerator if you need to store refrigerated items.
