First day: We start our tour at 8:30 am from Cuenca and drive about 1.5 hours to get to the highest point of the eastern mountains range of the Andes dividing Azuay and Morona Santiago. From there you swing yourselfe on a bike and go for the downhill biking adventure. You bike partly on asphalt and partly on dirt road along a windy road through the Andes. After about 1.5 hours you will have a break from biking and go on a hike trough the cloud forest to an amazing waterfall. Then you will enjoy lunch and when you are ready you go on the last leg to Limón. You reach the small town in the afternoon and before dinner everyone can refresh and relax for a while.
Second and last day: After breakfast, we meet to drive to the waterfalls for canyoning. The beautiful waterfalls are located in the rainforest and are great for a little adventure in the jungle. Besides rappelling down some walls you will also be able to slide and jump into pools to your heart’s content. For lunch we will return to Limón and then prepare our trip back to Cuenca, where we will arrive in the late afternoon.
