Spend a day amongst the waterfalls and wildlife of Ecuador on the cloud forest trails outside of Bucay. Wander the forest trails and stop at three different waterfalls to swim in the waters beneath each. Learn how to operate a sugar cane press and enjoy a traditional lunch after the trails. Begin the day with hotel pickup from your accommodation in Guayaquil and set out for Bucay Town. Admire spectacular views of the Bucay Mountains during the trip to Bucay Town. Take the car to the top of the mountain, ascending a total of 4,200 feet. Admire the river, plants, and local scenery on the trip up the mountain, and spot the local farm where you will learn to use the traditional 'Trapiche' or sugar cane press. Reach the cloud forest and hike through natural trails within the forest. Observe a variety of local plants, animals, trees, and species of birds while exploring the cloud forest, and make three different stops at three different local waterfalls, starting with the first, 'Las Mellizas, and take around 45 minutes to explore or refresh yourself in the falls. Continue hiking to reach the second and third waterfalls, 'Chorrera del Amor', where you will spend 30 minutes, and 'Isabela' where the tour will stop for 90 minutes. Enjoy free time to explore 'Isabela' and refresh yourself in the waters of the highest waterfall in Bucay. Leave the forest and arrive at a traditional local restaurant and have a lunch of local cuisine before starting the return trip to Guayaquil to be dropped off back at your hotel.
