I did the "Ultimate" adventure with them & it was *absolutely awesome*. Helmut, Alberto, and Matt were all top-notch guides: professional, knowledgeable, and conscietous of both the environment and the community. Their priority was to make sure everyone had a safe and fun experience - and they exceeded my very high expectations. I'm an experienced climber and outdoor adventurer, and... More

I'm not one for taking guided trips as i tend to be very adventurous and athletic, however, my boyfriend really wanted to see the river and rappel down this waterfall that he had researched on the north part of the island... and I have to admit that I'm glad he talked me into it. The "ULTIMATE" adventure blew my mind... More

We had an absolute blast on this trip - I can't recommend it highly enough if you like a bit of adventurous exploration. We did the Six Waterfalls Tour, which involves abseiling (if you're British like us ;-) or rappelling (if you're not :) down six waterfalls in a stunning canyon, and then jumping from various beautiful and adrenaline-inducing spots...

Did canyoning with these guys through my surf camp. It was an awesome, exhilarating, and nerve wracking experience! The jumps kept getting higher and the water colder, yet I was having a great time! The instructors were very friendly, knowledgeable, a little crazy sometimes and no matter what you always feel confident about your safety with these guys. Just go,... More

I had a such a great time on the Kayak River Adventures half day tour. We started at a small family zoo on the river where you can see different reptiles (iguanas, a crocodile, snakes...) and then we paddled for about 45 min to the beach on the river mouth. After some beach time and rest, we paddled to the... More

This was a fantastic trip. We spent 3 days in the wild with Helmut, Matt and Alberto, our guides.
