If you and your partner are adrenaline junkies you’ll love the canopy zip line tour where you can fly over two 300 foot waterfalls, or go whitewater rafting to get the blood pumping as you paddle through canyons with lush rainforest either side.

The Food of Love

The resort hosts the Lava Lizard Restaurant where wholesome meals are prepared with many organic ingredients fresh from the Leaves and Lizards farm.
