Waterfall Exploration & More
*MINIMUM OF 4 GUESTS IS NEEDED TO MAKE THIS EXP. POSSIBLE* Slow down. Pause. Take a deep breath. And get ready for an adventure! Let me guide you on a centering, calming and unique experience in the forest. See what immersing in nature will do for your well-being. Our guided waterfall hike offers you a safe and easy way to relax your mind, energize your spirit, get down and muddy, and feel like a kid again. It’s the perfect change of pace in this era of post-pandemic re-entry. :) We begin with a group welcome and guest introductions. and then start the hike along to the waterfall. The road is fairly flat and calm (e.g., no need for grappling sticks and mountain shoes). Along the way, I may point out some various herbs, a cacao fruit, or a papaya along the way (and maybe pick one too!). We will swim and splash in the waterfall and replenish on any snacks you've brought. Those who dare can also try a climb up the waterfall! Our time together will NOT be physically challenging beyond a mile or so of slowly paced walking. Our walks are for nature immersion and connection and a bit of splashy water fun in the waterfall itself. This experience is both for the chill crowd & the daredevils! We should be back within 4 hours -- but sometimes we forget about time and let the adventure continue on (assuming that everyone in the group is ok with it and is operating on “island time").
