    Jena was a great guide! And it was wonderful to have a chance to see one of the tallest waterfalls in South America up close. We had extremely rainy weather and that impacted our hike, it got so muddy that we were sliding towards the end and there was a lot of cow poo on the trail. Would recommend packing extra dry clothes for a change for the ride home. Great experience to see the local farmers as well and eat with them
