Head to Heritage Nature Reserve to survey exceptional landscapes as well as a richly biodiverse selection of protected plant and wildlife. Stretching over 20 km sq (2,000 hectares), the mixture of dry coastal forest and rainforest shelters species as diverse as fruit bats, wild boars, and tropical birds of various types. The reserve offers a wide variety of packages for exploration of the land; if you’re feeling adventurous, take the guided hike or the mountain biking trail.

The meal at the restaurant recently opened was cooked with "perfume" and served with kindness. I recommend these activities with enthusiasm.
We really enjoyed the reserve.You travel around a predetermined track on Quad bikes as a group with a guide. we saw deer, stags , fruit bats, and visited a waterfall where you could swim to cool off. the rough terrain track had challenging parts but make sure you have old clothes and trainers as you will get dusty. Really good adventure where you will learn about the forests and how they are trying to rebuild from early deforestation when it was stripped to allow growing of sugar cane.We had a twin seater quad bike which was fun but there are single seaters as well.
Large landscapes. Lovely place to visit buggies and quad bikes to ride around on different tours to go on depending on how long you want to visit for. The guides were very informative and the photographers take good photos
