Paso del Mango activities with Christopher Chiu

Paso del Mango activities with Christopher Chiu

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of hosting Chris Chiu at Finca Carpe Diem in Paso Del Mango. A lively, entrepreneurial minded, graceful individual who brought with him a positive energy and a sense of adventure. While he was here, Chris was kind enough to include us and Paso del Mango in one of his video logs which he updates and posts to on a regular basis while travelling. You can view the video and visit his youtube feed below.
