Holy crap, the canyoning tour was THE MOST technical, exhilarating, scary, amazing, funtastic trail hike of my life - and I'm not a stranger to trail hikes!
In all seriousness, you better be fit and ready to push yourself. If I could do this every weekend I totally would. And the price? Completely worth it. I would have spent more.
The best part was the home cooked Dominican meal made by the family of one of the guides. The warmth, and true authenticity of everything made it one of the best excursions I've ever been on while on vacation.
Thanks Helmut, Matt, and the other Dominican guide (forgot his name!) for an afternoon we'll never forget.
