    My wife and i loved the hike! Jacob, our guide was very knowledgeable, funny, engaging and thoughtful. He went out of his way to find and collect flowers and fruit from the rainforest that we could learn about and partake in.

It was a great trip! We got to see so much and our guide, Del, was awesome. He definitely made the trip so much better. If you get motion sickness easily, be prepared. The roads can make you nauseous. But in the end, it's worth it. You'll see so many great places. My personal favorite being the Black Sand Beach. Great views, great sand, being in the water is also fun. I definitely recommend doing a tour rather than driving it yourself. It's a much better experience.

This was a great experience. The guide knew all about the local plants the land etc. Landing I the rain forest was incredible. I am so glad we booked this trip.
