Laurel, Cocobolo and Ojoche.
Be prepared to demonstrate your abilities with the bow and arrow, an ancestral practice used for the hunting of animals.
The Croku have a program for environmental reforestation. Together with them you can plant a tree and in this way collaborate with the protection and conservation of species in danger of extinction.
Enjoy a delicious lunch, known as Mafurisejeca, a dish made of fish covered by anise leaves accompanied by organic tubers of the zone such as yuca, ñame or tiquizque. It is a unique cultural experience you won’t want to miss!
