Mario is a true professional, i.e. knowledgeable, in tune with his guests and picked up on little things. He communicated well in advance. Likely most important is how well networked and respected he is. As a result, we were able to see fully how a banana farm operates - farms don't readily permit guides into their operation. The cocoa farm experience was fabulous, the lunch yummy and he added a special treat over and above what we were expecting. Mario is so enthusiastic about what he does.
