Active, but not too difficult way to enjoy a sunny day. Kayaking is about half of the trip, which leads to an easy hike through muddy but navigable forest to a crowded, but not too crowded, waterfall. Views from the water are fantastic. Our tour guide knew much about nature and could answer almost any question we threw at him... More

This is a wonderful morning activity with a leisurely kayak up the river followed by a short hike up to a waterfall with a pleasant little swimming hole. The kayaks are mostly doubles - really easy for experienced kayakers like us, and easy enough for new comers. The hike is not at all difficult, but it is very muddy! The... More

An amazing experience! Thomas was a fun, knowledgeable guide who made sure we were the first ones to the waterfall so we could see it in its pristine state. I'd recommend this company, going early, and asking for Thomas!
