We did this park on our way out of town. We did the tour solo, I really do not think there is a need for a guide at all. I would actually recommend not going on a guided tour because then you have to share the swimming spots with 10+ strangers. It was so nice to have the entire pool... More

The Rainmaker consists for a set of looping walks through the rain forest overlooking the Pacific Ocean 7km away at the end of a moderately difficult dirt road. We managed to get there is an ordinary sedan but a 4WD would give more confidence. The private reserve offers a choice of looping walks through the rainforest rising up a few... More

We had a rental car so this was easy for us to get to. It's very easy to find about 2 miles off the main road. We loved this morning of hiking and swiming in the pools at the waterfalls. Come early in the day as the afternoon typically brings rain. The meal at the end was lovely for an... More

We had a great day at the Rainmaker Park. There was no one else in the park but us. It was a great hike, great swimming in the water for a cool off. The waterfalls were great. Also a great home cooked meal at the end. The guide had great knowlege of the park and were to find the wildlife.

Went here with my mother and my boyfriend and we all said this was the best part of our trip to Costa Rica! It was a bit tough for my mum (aged 60), but we took it slowly and she very much enjoyed it. The waterfall near the end was the best-definitely go for a swim in it. The actual... More

Such a beautiful private hike, with few tourists, a mix of hike, hanging bridges, waterfalls and pools to swim in! Highly recommended!

Off the beaten track, we had the park to ourselves when we went. A senior and three young ones under 6 years old we had a great time. Up and down terrain, but fun on the bridges and swimming in the waterfall pool. Lunch after and chatting with the friendly staff in the open air restaurant was simple but good,... More

what a fantastic experience and a great tour value. George was our guide (he is amazing) and imparted a wide range of information about the plants and animals and about Costa Rica. He spotted animals we would never have seen on our own including anoles, owls, some sleeping yellow birds, various frogs, lizards, spiders, insects and more...but, on the night... More

Unassuming but beautiful. About 45 minutes from Quepos - a good chunk of it by dirt road. Good walking path at the foot of the mountains. Lots of climbing, rope bridges and a chance to swim in a pool at the bottom of a waterfall. Great rain forest experience. Typical Costa Rican lunch available at the entrance was cheap and... More

We spent the morning here. The hike is not very difficult, and they provide walking sticks. The hike offers pretty scenery, a couple waterfalls (bring bathing suit because you are aloud to swim in them), some natural pools created by the waterfalls and some scary hanging bridges. Overall it was a nice hike but unfortunately we didn't see any wildlife.... More
