Come explore the rainforest with a local private guide!!!
Take a drive through the south side of Antigua and experience the greenery that is our rain forest. The Fig Tree drive and Wallings Dam are home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. Mango, coconut & banana tress line the roads of this lush area. The hike begins at the Wallings reservoir and climbs to 1217 feet. Along the trail you will hear local birds in song as you make your way along the path. Breathe in the freshness of the air as your lungs expand en route to our destination. Take in the 360 degree view of Antigua from 1200 feet above sea level.

** There is the option of taking the hiking trail to the top of the dam **
IMPORTANT! Persons opting to take this hike up a fairly steep incline that is prone to be slippery after it rains should be equipped with proper footwear, clothing and fluids ARE A MUST!
