Head for the mountains with an experienced and knowledgeable tour guide. Journey to Hidden Valley Falls, better known as the Thousand Foot Falls, and see a stream plummet 1,600 feet into a fern and pine tree lined gorge. Look for the rare Orange- breasted Falcon, the King Vulture, White-tail Deer, and Brocket Deer. Drive to the Rio Frio (cold river) Cave and hike through the huge cavernous tunnel alongside the Rio Frio river. Emerge on the other side of the tunnel and then hike through the jungle back to the vehicle. Then drive to the Rio On pools and cascades where guests can cool off swimming in the cool pools or by sitting in their own natural jacuzzi.
