    What to Expect

    This is a fun hike with an adventure twist takes you to the 72 foot Avocat Waterfalls, down the face of which you can rappel (abseil) if you wish.

    What you will Do and See

    Hike through the lush green forest

    Your adventure starts with a one and a half hour hike through stunning rain forest to Avocat Waterfall. We hike in over some hills to see and experience the rain forest and its wildlife, firsthand.

    Encounter fascinating flora and fauna

    While walking you will see, experience and learn of the natural history of this magnificent rainforest. Highlights will be seeing amazing trees while Emperor and other butterflies float by. Forest birds such as Trogons, Honeycreepers and Manakins at their lek are abundant. The trail leads to an enchanting stream with an abundance of anthuriums and heliconias on its banks; it will take us to the Marianne River.

    Take a rejuvenating swim in a plunge pool

    The walk ends at the seventy-foot waterfall, where swimming in the small pool at the base of the falls is our objective. Relax while getting a natural drumming massage as you sit at the base of the falls.

    Rappel down the waterfall

    After a quick swim in the falls the adventurous will hike to the top of the falls, put on harnesses and safety equipment and plunge over the side rappelling back to the waterfall’s pool!!! Wooohoooo!!!!!
