          We are going to stay at this hotel this December. We are arriving late morning after a very long overnight flight. Would it be possible to just go for a short hike and dip into some waterfall pools or do we have to book a tour in order to do that? We are probably be too tired for a tour that day, but would love to go for a walk. Thank you.

          Hi- Were you charged an extra guest fee? I was trying to book for my family of four and when I went to book, it tacked on another $125 and called it an extra guest fee? Thanks.
