  • After nightfall, we head to the National Park for a night safari, where we’ll look for nocturnal animals.
  • On this day your activities start at 7pm in the evening so we advise that you arrive at Coco Hostel in the afternoon to give you time to check in and relax before your adventure begins.

  1. Seb

    Absolutely fantastic trip, couldn’t recommend this more! Amazing experience to be floating in a lake in the middle of the jungle with good people and delicious food.

  2. Aisling

    Fantastic trip! So relaxing and the scenery is insane! If you’re thinking of it, just do it!
    The accommodation is basic but far more comfortable than I imagined. It was amazing to wake up on the lake to the sounds of the jungle. A piece of paradise!
    The food was delicious and plentiful – no-one went hungry! I was nervous about the hiking and caves so gave them a miss and had some relaxing time at the lake, swimming and kayaking, instead. There was no pressure to do anything. My group said the activities were not that difficult and they all had an amazing time (even though they were jealous of my chill time!).
    Amazing trip! Highlight of my trip so far!
