We had a fun visit with our daughter and her friend. They loved roaming the grounds and seeing the sculptures, plants and animals. It was also very interesting to see the bay. They also enjoyed the goats and roosters.

This was more like a walk in the woods. Make sure you pick up a map or you could get lost very easily. Lots of Chilean trees and bushes. At least there are signs on everything.

Very worthwhile stop in Tofino. Lots of gorgeous flowers & things to look at & enjoy! When following the trail through the property, one ends up near the water! Lots of beautiful photos to take! Truly enjoyed our adventure here!
