Yesterday, we booked a last minute tour guide called Ivan for a hike. He just happened to be free on Saturday for a trip because earlier in the week, we had called the public bus company for a tour of Mayaro … but when we got down to their office on Friday, we found out it was cancelled. So then we cold-called a bunch of tour companies and Ivan was available!

We hiked up all the way to Avocat falls and from there we literally went down the river to get to 3 pools (another swimming area). The hike lasted 4 hours… what a workout!
