Jungle - Waterfall Tour: 4 hours long starting in El Valle, located at an elevation of 2000 ft. in a beautiful rain forest. From El Valle you will travel along a rugged trail deeper into the mountains crossing six streams and arriving at the stunning and picturesque 100-foot waterfall known as “Cascada Tavida” where you can swim or just relax in a hammock enjoying the fabulous views before the return trip to El Valle. There are bathroom facilities, an excellent restaurant, a spa and a small hotel located at Villa Tavida. The tour includes an English speaking guide.
