  • We did the Classic 3 days - 2 nights, and it was memorable! Body very well organized, guides are friendly, the food is excellent, the adventure's worth. However, expect to do more trek to zipline, and the market is demanding! In short, he must be fit, otherwise it can become unpleasant. The first day, we walked for 5 hours to get to the Treehouse (#5) the more distant, with how hot it is, our backpacks, steep and slippery ground, we were happy to be able to relax on arrival in our home in the trees. The second day, we walked three hours to go to an another Treehouse (#1) for the night. For these two days, we had time before dinner to walk in zipline around the House. Third day, starting in the morning to return to the village where our pickup awaits. The Treehouses are well-appointed and impressive considering their situation: drinking water on tap, cold shower, with Turkish toilet on the jungle, mattress directly on the floor, entry and exit by the zipline. For the price and according to the description on the website, it was expected more of zipline and less trek, but it was really a great experience.
