Our kayak guide, Annie, was terrific! Knowledgeable, outgoing, and friendly. The hike to the fallls is not for the faint of heart. Muddy and slippery. Great exercise, though. The river kayaking portion was easy. Definitely folllow suggestions from the kayak co. for shoes, clothing, etc.

After finding, no joke, a paper pamphlet, we took a chance to explore the river, jungle and waterfall. It was by far the BEST tour I’ve ever had! It was beautiful, fun, educational and breathtaking! I highly recommend it!

We had a coupon for $40 off. We spent roughly $115. It was about four and a half hour tour.
