“A Trip to the Top of the Mountain”
8.00 AM Depart from San Vito in 4-Wheel Drive Vehicles
This exciting tour takes you to the mountain top source of San Vito’s pure wáter supply.
The two to three hour road trip is done in 4×4 vehicles, a necessity to navigate the higher portion of the mountain. Cars are available.
On the way up you will pass through eco-environmental terrain, home to Cotingas, Quetzales, Águila Crestadas, and Bell birds amongst others. This is also the hábitat for white-faced and howler monkeys, kinkajou, cougars, and deer.
