Trip Info

This half day tour takes us hiking up through the rainforest to “Cascadas Latas”. Check out the following quote from my friend Kristin’s Christmas letter after their trip to visit us here in Ecuador. “Rolfe’s favorite part of that trip was the hike up a muddy river gorge that we did on his birthday. After a couple hours of hiking, we ended up at a pool and big waterfall. Britt and Rolfe swam around behind the waterfall and looked out through the cascade at a very pre-historic scene; wild water, deep gorge, rain (of course!), thick vegetation, no sign of other people. Rolfe kept expecting Tyrannosaurus Rex to come crashing out of the forest.” That pretty much says it all. Note: if it is raining, it will be muddy, a little more difficult, and take a bit longer than usual.

During the hike, your guide will tell you all about the many unique rainforest flora and fauna that you encounter. Afterward, we get to swim, relax, and have a picnic lunch at the lagoon at the bottom. The river has a toboggan formation, along the trail that we can shoot if the water level is juuuust right.

    While staying with Gari and Michelle at Casa Blanca we took the waterfall trip one day and had a great time. My wife and I didn’t feel like doing all the hiking & climbing and wanted to do some birding. Gari took our friends to the top and got his brother to hang back with us for a slow walk and bird watching. This personal accommodation typified the treatment that Gari showed us throughout our stay at Casa Blanca. I would recommend Gari’s services without reservation.
