There can be times when one of the better ways to see a place is by using the knowledge of the locals. This region has a number of guided nature walks.
Allowing time to learn some useful words and phrases in the local tongue often separates the real travelers from the tourist hordes. Educating yourself with a few easy phrases like "¿Querría bailar conmigo?", which means "Would you like to dance with me?", can make your stay all the more pleasant. "This gentleman will pay for everything" is also useful, so learn to pronounce "Este caballero pagará por todo"
