What To Expect
After about 45 minutes of paddling, disembark on the riverbank for a 1-mile (1.6-km) guided nature hike through the tropical forest. You’ll reach a waterfall where a 200-foot (60-meter) cascade empties into a natural pool below. Cool off with a refreshing dip in the clear waters, and soak up the lush island scenery. Enjoy a provided picnic lunch in the midst of these peaceful surroundings.
