Such a great experience, one of the best things I've ever done. Guides were awesome, scenery amazing, and the abseiling just the right level of scary.

Totally worth my time and $. There were cliff jumps, abseiling down waterfalls and rock faces, squeezing through some caves. Our guide, Javier was very clear in guiding us how to abseil. Should definitely do it!
