    We offer different locations, and these locations all offer something different. We offer basic Rain Forest hikes for that are fit for all levels going through a beautiful old growth forest with up down terrain that will require proper hiking shoes, but overall simple paths. If you would prefer a hike through the forest and up a mountain to enjoy panoramic views we can arrange that as well at various locations. We will talk about local plants, trees, and wildlife. Hopefully get to see some along the way.

This was an amazing tour. I booked it for my birthday and I am a local. Darwin is a very knowledable guide. We were just outside the city and deep in pockets of old growth forest. He taught us all about the local wildlife and taught us how to identify trees. He also gave us tons
