Old Spanish Road Hike & Swim

Duration: 3 1/2 hours

Old Spanish Road Hike & SwimRefresh your memory and your body on this unique exclusive excursion!

A quick 30 minute bus ride through the countryside accessed through private property brings you to the start of the 16th Century Royal Highway built by the Spaniards to transport trade goods inland and bring the gold, silver, lumber, and other precious commodities back to the Bay of Trujillo for shipping back to Europe. Completed in 1556 large portions of the road have survived washouts, landslides, and deterioration with some sections still in use today! The road wanders through the rainforest along the Mahoguay River past interesting and beautiful rock formations sculpted by eons of water flow.

Choose a refreshing swim in the remote cascade pool, relax on the rocks with your feet in the cool water, or rest in the shade of the canopy while enjoying the beauty of the peaceful setting. Any of them rejuvenates the body and makes the return trip a breeze!

Keep on the lookout for wildlife as you hike through areas inaccessible by the public. You never know when you may spot one of our many exotic rain forest birds and animals that make this area home!
