He offers interesting informative tours to the prehistoric petroglyphs, lookout and lagoon near the top of Volcano Maderas as well as shorter hikes to the farms, homesteads, and organic coffee cooperative at Finca Magdalena near Balgue.
Relax in a hammock or rocking chair on the large front porch constructed of volcanic stone surrounded by nature with lake views possibly howler monkeys, iguanas and definitely butterflies and lake birds, fishermen and views of both volcanoes with just a few steps. Take a refreshing swim in the lake or rent a bike, horse, small fishing boat and tour around as there is a lot to see and do here.
