El Valle de Anton Tour

1 DAY (9-10 hrs)

Nestled in the second largest inactive volcano crater in the world, the small town of El Valle de Anton homes waterfalls, a butterfly farm, and artisan market and is a breather of fresh air after the heat of the city. The densely forested slopes surrounding the town also harbour an abundance of wonderful flora and fauna some of which can be seen on the tour. Sunday is the best day for the the local market which offers a variety of local handicraft and produce but the tour operates any day of the week. With a guided tour of the butterfly haven and short waterfall hike this is a tour that offers a little bit for everyone and is the perfect day escape from the city. 

Those on a private tour can ask about the Snake Center and El Valle museum in the 300 year old church (not always open).
