Day 2 – Rio Don Diego

The pace will be a little slower today, as you will be taken to the Don Diego River (where some of the scenes of the famous movie “The Mission” were filmed). Once there, you will be taken up the river by boat and then float back down on your innertube all the way to where the river meets the ocean, a beautiful place full of birds. You may be lucky to spot a family of Howler monkeys as you float down the river.

Day 3 – Tungueka Indigenous Reserve

You will begin today’s activity with a trek for approximately 2 hours through a tropical humid forest by the Ancho river to reach the indigenous reserve of Tungueka. Once you have arrived, you will have a tour of this traditional and primitive community and learn about their way of life and different traditions. There will also be a cultural exchange with the community authorities. After the village tour you will have a delicious picnic & relax beside the beautiful Ancho river before the hike back down.

Day 4 – Time to Relax

After 3 days jampacked of adventure activities you have really earned this rest day! Spend the day relaxing around the grounds of your beachside accommodation. Join a yoga class, have a soothing massage (you might need it after all the hiking!) or simply read a book on a sunchair with the sound of the waves in the background.
