This was the most magical and adventure filled day! We had a group of 9 people, ranging in age from 1-50, and everyone enjoyed the day. Our guide Carlos was so informative, kind, and helpful even with our one year old. We loved seeing the animals at the rehabilitation center, hiking through the rain forest and setting rubber and incense trees, and especially swimming in the waterfall! That was a one of a kind experience! Being paddled down the river at dusk in a canoe made from a single tree was adventurous and beautiful. We learned so much at the cacao farm and enjoyed making our own chocolate and hot chocolate. We couldn't believe how much was packed into our day, and are so grateful to Carlos for making it perfect for us!

The rest of the day was great. It would have been nice to know to take a wet bag for the hike after swimming in the rainforest. Take more than a water bottle
