... Jason and I had another surprisingly private walking tour through the rainforest with a knowledgable naturalist guide. She pointed out numerous kinds of flora to us and explained a lot about many of them. It was truly interesting to learn how intelligent and intricate nature is.

The bus came past at 11:00am and picked us up, along with many other backpacked seeking the same thrills. eXtremo Ziplining was located about 20 mins out of town and offered an awesome 3 hours adventure tour through the forest canopy. Strapping on harnesses, donning helmets ...
