Starting from San Juan del Sur, the drive itself is as difficult as it is beautiful, through multiple rivers, narrow paths, & dense jungle. After 1 1/2 hours you will arrive at remote jungle village, with a population of 25 individuals. Once you arrive at your guides house, the pastor of the village, you will be invited into their home for refreshments & to relax before beginning your hike. Transportation Included (Round Trip).
When you are ready, you & your group will walk from your guides house into the jungle & begin to ascend up the mountain. The hike can be slippery, so, wear shoes that are appropriate.
During the hike you will rediscover 10 different unique waterfalls & numerous natural pools for swimming & bathing. The height of the waterfalls range from 15-50ft. There are optional "extreme" sections of the hike, where participants can climb the waterfalls using the vines of the jungle canopy. The water is clear, the surrounding landscape is lush & mountainous, & your guide will explain the flora & fauna, such as certain natural remedies for burns, & other health conditions.
Upon completing your venture through the jungle, your guide will once again invite you into his home, where their family has prepared a complete farm-to-table brunch, all locally sourced from your guide's property.
The morning ends with adrenaline, revisiting the same route you originally took to enter the remote village. Back through all the rivers & mountain ranges until you safely arrive back in San Juan del Sur.
A soul-cleansing & humbling experience, that will recenter your inner primal needs for the wilderness.
Tips are appreciated to the guides! Transport IS included.
