  • We did a guided tour with a group and it was fun. I am glad we did it, but we didn't see a ton of wildlife. But, I guess it is just luck. The bridges are fun to cross and give an amazing view...  more »
  • Nice morning though would have missed 90% if not for the guide. Great views from some of the bridges but more of a nature walk than anything else.  more »
  • What a spectacular place. We rented the cottages that are on this property. First off, so secluded. Such an amazing outdoor adventure. We are here tonight - it’s refreshing, quiet, peaceful and amazing! The hosts have been nothing but accommodating and have made our stay even more feasible since we are leaving a day earlier. Sure wish we weren’t since we love this location so much. Great idea to have a car!
  • It was a phenomenal experience! We did the full trail in the pouring rain. We got completely soaked, despite having an umbrella and rain coats. We didn't opt for a guide, but still saw a couple birds and heard howler monkeys between thunderclaps. The waterfall was in full force due to the downpour and the forest was lush and lively. The hanging bridges were great spots to watch the clouds and fog roll over the canopy. The rain, thunder and lightning just added to the mystical experience and it meant no one else was on the trail! Highly recommended, rain or shine! We would do it all again!
