This is without a doubt one of the most amazing experiences of my life! You walk through the jungle to the village, and from the village you trek to the cave, you descend into the cave by absailing down a waterfall, unfortunately for me I dislocated my finger at a 90 degree angle the wrong way doing this, I put the finger back into the joint ( you bet that hurt!!!!), got to the bottom of the rope, cooled down in the waterfall, refused to go back and continued the 8-9 hour trek...and it was worth every minute of it!!!! after going through the cave you come out into a river of pure crystal clear emerald green fringed with ferns and jungle high above you on the towering canyon walls! Absolute paradise!! floating down that river is amazing, with many waterfalls cascading in either side, the climb back to the top is a bit of a challenge with a dislocated swollen black finger, but the views are sensational! The guides were very helpful, especially Daniel who looked after me when I hurt myself, he even carried my camera for me :-) If you do nothing else in Santo : DO THIS!!!
