    Great walk through the rain forest. Some nice views along the way. Should probably allow 2 hours.

    Beautiful rainforest with butterflies orchids, and crystal clear waters filled with shrimp turtles eels and crayfish. Great bush walks and hikes. Fantastic spots for meditation and mindfulness.
