What people are saying about Nordeste

This is a really fun experience for those with a sense of adventure! The guides were skilled and good fun. You get to have the unique experience of rappelling down a waterfall, jumping off cliffs and sliding down short waterfalls. It's a great way to spend a few hours!

Small group of 6 people, very nice guides and great atmosphere. I highly recommend. The course could be done in its entirety quietly with a few additional jumps. Explanations on the flora of the island and on the place where we were.

The setting is amazing. First you go up about a kilometer and a little, then you go down with a zip line, saints and rappelling. Very nice and attentive.

Amazing guides, really fun jumping down waterfalls. Couldn't do it without a tour unless you have ropes, so it really is worth it <3

we had a lot of fun this morning. The guides were very friendly and perfectly guided the group down the river. Great experience.
