Jaco Adventure Tours: Your Questions Answered

Should We Book Tours Prior To Arrival?

Some of our Jaco adventure tours and activities sell out, especially during high season, so we recommend booking yours before arrival to avoid disappointment.

Do You Have Insurance?

Yes, we carry insurance, and all of the tour providers we work with carry the required insurance.

Are Your Jaco Adventure Tours Safe?

That’s the big question! Over the last 12+ years, we have taken more than 10,000 people on adventures. These folk have spanned every age from two to 80 and all ability types, from jungle warrior to incredible doofus. No one has needed medical attention that could not be fixed with a band-aid and a little ice. 

We designed our Costa Rica adventure tours for the first-timer! Our backup and safety systems are designed to allow you to do all the activities on your own while allowing us to keep you safe in case you do everything wrong.

What Should I Wear on Your Jaco Tours?

Wear your swimsuit under your clothes — and the ideal clothes are made from quick-drying materials. Wear shoes that will stay on during your adventure — and remember, they will get wet! Absolutely do not wear flip-flops!!! Slip-on water shoes are great as they tend to grip really well in the water. Tennis shoes and strap-on sandals also are a good choice.

What Should I Bring on My Costa Rica Adventure Tour?

The essentials are your camera, plenty of water, bug spray, and sunblock. You can also bring a towel and a change of clothes if you like.

Are Your Jaco Adventure Tours Safe or Appropriate for Kids?

As there are varying difficulty levels to all our tours, please advise us if you are traveling with children under the age of 10 for our canyoning or zipline tours. Sometimes children require extra effort and attention from the guides and we want to ensure that we are appropriately staffed.

What About Older People or People with Physical Limitations?

Our canyoning tours have been enjoyed by people up to age 80, people who limp, people with a prosthetic leg, and people over 300 pounds!! With that said, it is required that you have at least moderate balance and the energy to hike and stay on your feet. (We won’t carry you, sorry!) 

Our waterfall tours have various levels of hiking and varying terrain. If you are concerned about the appropriateness of a tour for your group, just contact us first and we will help you decide which adventure is best for you.

Will I Get Wet on Your Jaco Tours?

We sure hope you do! For our waterfall tours, it is up to you if you want to swim or jump in. However, for canyoning, one of the things that makes it so exciting is that you are rappelling down the middle of a waterfall!

Is Tipping Included in Your Costa Rica Adventure Tours?

Gratuity is not included, nor is it required. However, if you feel that your guides did a wonderful job, tipping would be appropriate and is greatly appreciated. A fairly standard tip for a deserving guide could be 10-15% per person.

Do Your Tour Guides Speak English?

Yes, all of our guides are bilingual and speak English and Spanish.
