Tour or rides to Tiger Fern Falls from Placencia?

The are just the 2 of us. Does anyone offer any trips to the Tiger Ferns Falls from Placencia? Not really interested in the Ben's Bluff Waterfalls. We just want to get to a larger falls somewhere fairly quick, and to swim around the area and chill out for most of the time. Not sure how hard the terrain is to get there though. Any ideas on this or on other falls you deal with where the terrain isn't terrible? We enjoy stuff off of of the beaten path and not too touristy.

Would appreciate any help!

Thanks!

Its in the Jaguar Preserve. Its a longer and more steep trail than the basic waterfall trail, but heavenly waterfall you want to hit around noon when the sun is over head. Yes, easy to arrange from Placencia

Thanks for your response and advise on when to go.

It's seems like the only way I can find a way to get to Tiger Ferns Falls from Placencia, is renting a vehicle and doing it on our own. The tour companies I contacted so far, only go to Ben's Bluff Falls. We just want to spend a couple of hours at the Tiger Fern falls and unwind. Unless we just hitch a ride with a company that goes to Ben's Bluff and do our own thing. But I'm not sure it would allow us enough time at the falls and we would miss our ride back. Any ideas or companies that might go to Tiger Ferns Falls anyone?

Thank you!

It may cost you a bit more since in effect it would be a 'private tour' but simply ask the tour companies if it is an option to set this up. Although they may not have it on their list if you ask most will see the possibility of making a bit of money and figure out a price for you.

I would recommend that you contact Doyle Gardiner of D'Tourz who does tours to the Jaguar Preserve. You can track him down through his family's business which is Nite Wind Tours at 501-660-6333 or 501-503- 3487.

You can book the trip with any of the tour operators going to the Preserve and set off on your own on TF trail or with a guide at the park and return in time and travel back to Placencia with whom you traveled there with. Simple

rent a car for the day, the drive is not that long, but the last part has a teeth chattering dirt road. But it is worth it.
