It was a lush rainforest. We all enjoyed it. Especially the cold spring water for a dip. We all went to dinner at Salsa Bar and Grille. The food was great. Delicious. We went for a crocodile tour yesterday and actually saw a few while visiting the Daintree Rainforest. Wow...we are starting the preparation to leave this beautiful place.
