Rock, face, and body painting at the creek - More than 10 colors are found in clay pebbles in the creekbed. This snake masterpiece was created by Elisabeth Timpone, artist and intern from NY. Children and adults express themselves body painting from colorful, non-toxic creekbed clays.

And we opened a path to another natural  cool pool  along the Green marked waterfall trail. We’ve spotted monkeys, kinkajous, lots of exotic flowers, birds and butterflies. Pool is entirely spring water fed with a gentle cascade. Can hold a large group of 10 or more. Easy in & out, no climbing. Great place to picnic in tranquil rainforest seclusion. Easy to find 10 minutes from campsites.

Cool Pool
















Natural SPA DAY! Natural skin cleansing, exfoliation, and smoothing with pure clay/gravel fines rubbed on.  Relax in an invigorating  natural jacuzzi, millions of oxygen-rich bubbles every second. Enjoy an incredible hydro-massage!

























The Green rainforest trail continues upstream along the scenic jungle creek to magnificent waterfalls and more cool pools at the power station, this time in rainy season glory.
