We did this as a shore excursion. Oddly enough it was raining on us in the rainforest. It's an easy out-and-back walk on a paved trail. Our destination was a waterfall, which turns out to be more of a whitewater section of a brook. Our...More
Oddly enough, it was a rainy day in the rainforest. We didn't see any wildlife except for a big ol' snail. But we learned about the forest and saw some waterfalls and it was a nice excursion.
