We visited this tour during our recent honeymoon. We were picked up around 8am from our hotel Cayo Levantado. We then travelled in an open top safari bus for around 45 mins to reach the destination. The guide on the bus was brilliant. We arrived at a ranch out in the middle of nowhere. Sat down for 5 mins before receiving our helmets and wellingtons. If you don't mind getting your shoes wet then don't bother with the wellingtons they are not really needed. We were then called forward to be selected for horse/ponies/donkeys. When you go on you were paired with a guide who would walk with you all the way to the top of the mountain. A lot of the horses are skinny and a lot have tics and bites also, when highlighting these to the guides they kept putting the mane back and covering them. The route that the horses take is terrible the ground is very unstable and the horses are constantly slipping, when they slip they are whipped by the guide. We walked through 2 pieces of water which was nice. The horses like to stop for a drink. When you get near the top there are some lovely views and quite a few photo opportunities. We then reached a little bar where you can get drinks and snacks and so on. You can see the waterfall from here and it looks lovely. We then walked down from here, it took about 5 mins to walk down and about 10 to walk back. This part is not for the unstable/elderly or people with ill health. When we were done at the waterfall it was awesome. Around 60m high, the spray from the waterfall is refreshing, there were lots of locals who would show off and jump from the waterfall and do a few stunts. If you want to swim in the pool you can do and it is very refreshing. The journey back to the bar is hard work and we saw a lot of people struggling. The journey back on the horses is also terrible, the horses slip even more on the way back down. Please tip the guides that walk with the horses a they do a good job in the conditions. You may also need a few dollars to buy the photos or videos that are taken on the way.
Overall a nice attraction, but they need to find a better way to get to the waterfall. Going on a quad bike would be better.
