Today was the “action day” .. Well it was Desafío Adventure Company’s ‘Mambo Combo’where the morning was rappelling / canyoning or us Kiwis call it abseiling and in this case down a waterfall / stream bed and in the afternoon was white water rafting.

US $132 with the group discount for the day which included a cooked morning tea / snack and another hot meal for lunch after the white water rafting.

The rappelling was down four drops. The second was 45 metres and the best was left till last at a mere 72 metres free falling most of the way.

Two extras were thrown in. First was to bomb or jump into the creek bed and the second we sat down on the river bed like a train one behind the other. One of the guides was at the top lying down across the water flow making a human dam. Then once we were all I place he would release the water and down it came!

En route to the white water rafting where we picked up some pineapple, we saw a sleeping sloth.
