Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Take your pick of a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your guides at the main office in central Jaco. Bring your camera, which will be kept in a dry bag to keep it safe but handy for action shots. Ride a 4x4 up rugged mountain roads to reach the trail head at an elevation of more than 2,000 feet (610 meters). From here, hike into the rain forest to a river, while your guide points out native plant and animal life along the way.

At the river, you can choose to walk along a trail or put your balancing skills to the test and hike upriver along rocks and boulders. Pass by more than 10 different waterfalls of varying size that flow into inviting natural swimming pools. Take a dip in the pools, and feel the relaxing, massaging rush of water while standing beneath the cascades.

For an added thrill, work up the bravery to jump from natural ledges down 20 feet (6 meters) into the polls below. Your guide will be on hand to ensure your safety and enjoyment each step of the way. The 4-hour adventure concludes with drop-off back at the starting point in Jaco.

Our guide, Lamar, was great. The trip itself was lacking. It was the dry season, but the trip there and the falls itself was nothing very special. We did enjoy the time, but it was Not worth what was charged at all.

The waterfall tour was amazing- we had so much fun! This tour was the highlight of our Costa Rica trip, and we would highly recommend it to other travelers/explorers. Our tour guide was professional and knowledgeable, making the trip safe, fun, and educational. Would definitely choose this tour company again, if ever in the Jaco area.

This tour was my favorite thing about my entire vacation! Our tour guide, Mike, was so great! He was so good with helping my 6-year-old navigate the waterfalls. Being terrified of heights, he helped me to overcome that fear for that day so that I could enjoy the waterfalls. I had the time of my life! Highly recommended!!!!

An amazing tour with Wilson! He stopped during the drive to point out native trees and birds along the way. The hike down the trail was fairly easy. The climb back up the falls was fun and challenging. We went at a slow pace and had a great time. Beautiful and exhilarating! Loved the waterfalls!
