I’m not going to lie in saying that we didn’t expect the adrenaline rush we experienced from this tour. The hike up was very hot and humid but we were glad to have experienced it with Christian and Wilson. They were both very knowledgeable about the native plants and animals which made the trek very enjoyable.
The first zip line was terrific flying over the dense canopy. The waterfall was absolutely gorgeous as it had just rained the night before so the water was roaring. My wife and I had our doubts about falling over the edge of the platform into a roaring waterfall but it turned out to be one of the most exhilarating experiences we have ever done.
If you are on the edge about doing this tour, let this be the review that pushes you to make the decision to go. You will absolutely not regret it and will be writing a similar review when complete!
When you make the decision to come make sure to request Christian and Wilson. Two of the best guides we experienced in our week vacation in Costa Rica period.
This was honestly one of the most memorable “excursions” I have ever experienced. Our guide, Mike, was first class — full of knowledge and provided us with an amazing adventure while still making us feel safe. The waterfalls Mike chose for us to visit were outstanding and better than expected. The last waterfall we visited was a once-in-a-lifetime event. We swam out to the waterfall, climbed up the face of the waterfall via ropes that Mike set up to a 20 foot cliff where we all completed a jump that was thrilling but not overly terrifying. For those of us who were brave enough, Mike took us up to a 40-foot point (appx.) where we could also jump from — probably the scariest but most exhilarating thing I have ever done. If you are looking for an all-around spectacular Costa Rican experience, Costa Rica Waterfall Tours is the perfect fit.

What an awesome trip! Our family was picked up at our hotel promptly by our guide, Christian. He was so personable and very knowledgeable about Costa Rica from history, customs, native plants and their uses and animals native to the country. Christian was an excellent guide navigating us through the maze of rocks to reveal pools of water and amazing waterfalls. This trip is a “must” if you love adventure and nature!

Hands down my favorite activity in Costa Rica. The waterfalls are gorgeous and jumping off them is unforgettable. Along the way we stopped for a fantastic casado–much better than the ones I was finding on my own. This tour is the one my family is still talking about months later.

Used waterfall tours for several outings. we enjoyed all of them. the most important thing was that they were honest as to what to expect. we did the shorter waterfall tour and it was good but would probably do the full day next time. the zip lining was also great. compared to other places, it was very safe and the staff was great. we also did Tortuga island. surprisingly it was not as “touristy” as would have thought. the food was great and great time for all ages. I highly recommend contacting waterfall tours for recommendations on your outings.

Great Adventure! There were 5 in our group and Cristian was our guide. The hike was beautiful and fun, but Cristian was the best! He is very knowledgeable and smart about the rainforest habitat which was so interesting! He also was patient and encouraging to some of us in our group who were not that agile. We always felt safe and the fresh pineapple at the end was delicious! When we return to Costa Rica and to Costa Rica Adventures, we will most definitely ask for him.

We had the best day!!!! Would recommend this trip. Christian & Harold were our guides/ best friends for the day. They were knowledgeable about the plants & things we found on our hike. They we’re both fun & made the repelling adventure comfortable & exciting. Plus they took tons of pics with our camera so we will have great memories of the trip! Can’t say enough wonderful things!!!!!
Our tour guide Wilson was wonderful. We did the “Extreme Adventurer” and it was worth every penny. We wouldn’t have known where to find these waterfalls on our own, or how to safely climb to get on the rope or natural slide pool. We also climbed up Nauyaca – and there’s just no way to do this on your own 🙂 It was difficult, a little scary, and totally amazing! We also ate the BEST food for lunch. The waterfalls are so beautiful and breathtaking. One of a kind experience for the adventurous spirit.

My 18 year old son and I just participated in the “Extreme Adventure” day long tour. Mike was an outstanding guide. He gave me great advice for activities to entertain my “Extreme Adreneline Junkie” son. We both had a fantastic time. Mike made us feel comfortable with cliff jumping and helped ensure it was safe and fun. I have never heard my son say “Thank you” so many times. Best experience and Highly recommended. Next time we are going to try the canyoneering. Lunch was the best food I ate in Costa Rica. Thanks Mike for the great experience.

Very well run company. Quick email responses. Tons of great reviews. Organized and deposits are booked with paypal, balances can be paid cash. I booked with Costa Rica Waterfall tours for our ride to and from the airport and for 2 tours. One tour was the Ziplining and Canyoning, and the other was the Extreme Waterfall Adventure. Both tours were amazing but if I had to pick one it would be the Zipling & Canyoning. The guys that work for Waterfall tours are above 1st class. They are knowledgable, they go above and beyond to make everyone comfortable and have a good time. So many little extras from stopping to get us fresh pineapple after our hike, to stopping at a soda and ordering us the most amazing home cooked authentic meal. We were hanging higher than the trees and climbing down waterfalls, and always felt safe. This trip was AMAZING!!!
