The Tavoro River Waterfalls hike is one of the most popular attractions at Bouma National Heritage Park located on Taveuni Island, Fiji.

We took about an hour long taxi ride from our honeymoon cottage at Bibi's Hideaway to reach Bouma National Park. The total cost of the round trip taxi ride including the several hours that he waited for us was $60 FJD (~$30 USD).

Before the beginning of the Tavoro Waterfalls walk, there was a small visitor's center where we signed in and paid the $8 FJD ($4 USD) per person entrance fee.

There are three waterfalls on this three hour hike and the first one is perfect for swimming, so we wore our swimsuits. The 1st waterfall has been featured in the movie "Return To The Blue Lagoon" along with various magazines and advertisements.

It takes about ten minutes to reach the first waterfall, forty minutes to the middle falls, and seventy minutes to the upper falls. The difficulty of the path increases with each waterfall from an easy walk to the first one to a fairly strenuous hike to reach the third falls.

Along the way we saw a variety of colorful tropical flowers, toads, frogs, birds, blue-tailed skinks, golden orb weaver (banana) spiders, and bright purple crabs. We dubbed the purple crabs "the guardians of the path" because they wouldn't move out of the way as we approached. They would reach up with their claws to grab our feet as we jumped over them to continue walking.
