The owner is a great guy who allows his visitors to draw or write on his walls. Also he doesn't pay tour guides or bus drivers any commission therefore his souvenirs are available for a reasonable price. Ps: he has an amazing garden ;)

Come. Have a complimentary cup of coffee, hang around, take pictures of the hummingbirds and relax listening to the rain. You might write your name on a wall or get the souvenir you need for your auntie. The place with no stress and friendly faces.
