The Explorer Waterfall Tour

1. The Explorer Waterfall Tour

Experience the true meaning of "Pura Vida" as this guided trip takes you to the rain forest in the hills above the Pacific Ocean to a majestic setting of pure Costa Rican natural harmony. Take a 4×4 drive up the mountain over 1000 feet to get to a private reserve. Your guide will stop along the way to point out interesting flora and fauna and the incredible views of the ocean and countryside. Start your adventure through the river after a short (5 minute) downhill hike. Hike up the river using trails and bridges that criss-cross  the river allowing you to enjoy the multiple smaller, interactive waterfalls and natural pools. There are 4 different swimming holes and many waterfalls to get under. These natural pools will invite you to swim in the fresh mountain spring water and submerge under the falls for an invigorating massage. For the more adventurous there are a couple of places you can jump into the pools from 4 and up to 25 feet! Enjoy some fresh tropical fruit at the last pool before the 10 minute hike back to the truck. During the entire tour you are totally surrounded by beautiful Costa Rican virgin rain forest. Bring your camera and your guide will keep it in a dry bag to make sure you get all those amazing pictures without damaging it!
