This was an incredible experience. The guides were great — very reassuring and professional and we felt like we were in good hands the entire time. That being said, this experience is definitely not for those with a fear of heights or who don’t trust themselves physically.

this experience was unbelievable. safe and super fun. we got great video and pictures that wow'ed every body back home and you do so many things in one activity: zip lining, rappeling, waterfall tour and high jump into the waterfall , jeep ride.

They show you some trees, cook, smash, crush beans to make into hot chocolate to drink. Very informative...BUT... this is not a plantation tour and they fo NOT male chocolate here from this place for you to purchase. It was worth the $40-45pp.

The tour is in Rainmaker Park and is really worth seeing by day and by night. We saw roach frog and some small snakes our guide did a good job. The food afterwards was very tasty.

Lamar and Joaquin were awesome guides. Very friendly and funny. They took great care of us and we had a ball.
