Colo-i-suva Forest Reserve, Suva Reviews
In US dollars. Admission $2.50, bus to get there $1, Guide $7. An amazing experience. Where parts of the Anaconda movie was filmed Bus: runs every 15 minutes and takes 30 minutes to get there. You can pay with cash. Opening hours: 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The guides are helpful (can also take pictures for you). I recommend it. While there are tours with good ratings which charge $90 US, you can do it yourself for less than $10.
If you're a lover of the outdoors then this would be a great place to add to your 'to do' lists while in Suva. Its a 20 min drive from the capital, Suva city. After a short hike from the main road, you get to the natural pools and waterfall. Waters cool and the forest is home yo many of Fiji's indigenous birds. There's accommodation available nearby at the Colo I Suva Raintree Lodge.
A wonderful place to visit during the weekends and the holidays because of the cool environment and waters that run through the forest park. The waters running underneath huge trees offering it shade as it cascades down the pools are cool to the touch and sends your body temperature down from the high that it was in and makes you calm with the quiet peace that the forests give. The authorities have a lot of room for improvement with regards to security and amenities. All in all its a wonderful place to treat the family or friends. Don't forget to bring entry fees.
Great place to hang out on a hot day...nice cool environment and the facilities have been upgraded with security as well.
Beautiful walking track. Not much supporting infrastructure, so take note of which trail you follow, so that you don't get lost.
