We went down there with two families and it was amazing. The hot springs and the zip lining through the canyon were the highlights for us. The staff is great. I want to go back again for tubing and biking.

Great natural location with a super private feel. The water is clear, clean and nice and warm. The further up river you hike the warmer it gets so go explore! The entire family loved the experience.

No, you don't have to stay at Rio Perdido to enjoy the activities and amenities. The number of people allowed per day is limited though and you need to make reservations ahead of time.
