What to expect
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.

We went on the waterfalls tour and we couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Lorenzo was a patient and very knowledgeable guide. The meal on the way to the waterfalls was delicious in a really special setting. Every success and we’ll definitely do it again when in town.

Mar 2021 • Family
It was a super fun day that started with a drive into the mountains where the jungle was rich with flora and fauna. We then took a small hike down to the falls where the water was cool and crisp which was perfect for a hot day. We were able to see a sloth, toucan, wild turkey and even a poison dart frog. Joaquin was a great guide who shared his love and knowledge of the plants and all of their uses, very interesting! We didn’t feel rushed and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Two thumbs up 👍🏻 👍🏻

I liked it a lot. Great guide and fun tour. Saw three different waterfalls. They weren’t huge waterfalls but the tour guide and group made it fun. I loved jumping off the bridge and platform at the final waterfall

This was such a great experience. The lunch before the hike was delicious. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and fun. He made sure to point out exotic plants and fun facts regarding the area. Swimming in the waterfalls was so refreshing after hiking. Would definitely do this again.

We went on Christmas Eve and had an awesome tour guide - Eduardo - who was extremely hospitable. He knew a lot about the local habitat and pointed out many things for us to see along the hike. He was encouraging and friendly. The meal we had pre-hike was phenomenal! Would definitely do this again.

Eduardo made the trip! He has an incredibly eye in the jungle - stopping to show us exotic birds and educating us on plants in the jungle. He has killer skills driving the ATV up the mountain - half the fun of the trip. And he showed his chops on the waterfall jumps. He kept the "feel" of the tour light, energetic, and fun. Everything about the tour is exciting, but he made it 10x better. Highly recommend the tour!

Our guide was awesome!
Nov 2019 • Couples
It was off season in Costa Rica so, we were fortunate to get a private tour from Josue. What an amazing afternoon. He was so personable and so knowledgeable. We started with a drive to a remote place in the jungle. Then treated to a delicious lunch. From there we hopped in the back of a Jeep and headed up the mountain. On the way Josue (our guide) spotted Toucans and Macaws. We then hiked down a path to some beautiful pools and waterfalls. The whole way Josue was showing us amazing things. Once at the falls, we played. The water was wonderful and Josue took great pictures. Once we were back to base camp, we were treated to a cold beer. Definitely a wonderful experience.

Amazing experience
Definitely recommend. Our tour guide Wilson (I'm bad at names so I'm probably wrong) was amazing. He took the time to explain everything for us while making all of us laugh. My friend and I aren't the best swimmer so he made sure that we was comfortable and safe at all times. I'm a horrible swimmer and he was there at the end of the waterfall jump to catch me. The hike down to the waterfall was easy but a little slippery. The hike up back to the car was a workout but very doable.

Best tour of the trip
Sep 2019 • Couples
Had a great time with our tour guide. He was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The tour included pickup from Los sueños and a light lunch. The jungle was beautiful and we traversed the rainforest and swam in several waterfalls. It was an easy to moderate hike and we went at a doable pace. Our tour was in the afternoon in the off season so I don’t know how it would be during the dry season as I imagine it would be crowded then. I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting the jaco region or San Jose. It had the right amount of adventure for us. Bring swim shoes or hiking swim shoes. Know how to swim.
