Thoroughly enjoyed this!

Wasn't overly crowded. Swam in the waterfall pools. Good little hike. For local IPA brew, it wasn't great but it wasn't awful either. $9 for a soda and beer! Expensive for CR. Oh... read more

We hiked the trails without a guide and saw a variety of butterflies, some frogs and lizards. It was a pleasant 2 hour walk mostly in the shade. The pools were nice to cool off in. The lunch is somewhat overpriced at $7 and the difference in the entry price for Ticos and tourists, while to be expected, is a... More

This was the highlight of our trip. It is just far enough off the beaten path as to be almost deserted when we visited. Very untouched natural jungle setting, rustic trails, hanging bridges, waterfalls, natural swimming holes. It was very idyllic. Everyone loved it. We spent a good bit of time swimming in the waterfall pools. Gorgeous. They feed you... More

Great hike up side of a beautiful mountain with rope bridges and great scenery - and a dip in the mountain spring water is a great reward Microbrew is a great treat at the end

We had a guide take us through and would highly recommend it. We would have missed SO much if we had done it on our own. The trails are well marked and easy to walk. There is a lovely waterfall for swimming halfway through. You can eat lunch when you are finished, and it was delicious. They provide walking sticks... More

My son, his wife, and I went hiking in Rainmaker. It was great! We spent just over 2 hours walking all the trails fairly slowly looking for wildlife. That time included about 15 mins swimming in a pool and scrambling up and down to an upstream waterfall. The cool water was very refreshing. We didn’t see a lot of creatures... More

It's a pity that such a great park is unknown and underestimated. This place is pure heaven, full of nature, amphibians, reptiles, amazing vegetation and landscapes. The bridges give an incredible view on the valley and it's possible to spot many different animals during the trip. The guides are very good both in English and natural knowledge. The guy I... More

The views are great, suspension bridges a bit scary but fun. Not much in terms of wildlife, but worth the money just for the scenery. You need to be in reasonable shape to do the outer loop all the way round.

This tour will be for someone who can do alot of walking and can handle large amount of stairs. THankful for the walking stick which they provided us. THe waterfall near the end was extremely cold but felt good after the long hot walk.
