The owner of our place in the rainforest told me about a treacherous hike through the rainforest that led to a beautiful waterfall. Our place was located far from the tourist part of the forest and I was intrigued by the idea of getting to see a part of the forest most people don't. Plus, I was told the hike was treacherous and demanding and that most people don't make it all the way to the waterfall, so I had to give it a try. I was sort of cynical about his description of this hike, but I realized he was right as soon as I stepped off the property. No trails in a hilly rainforest makes for an almost impossible hike. I think I fell more of the way than I actually walked! A few minutes into the hike, I was already covered in mud from head to toe.
