Join Us On an Unforgettable Day Trip from Jaco

Experience the true meaning of Pura Vida on this guided day trip from Jaco. Let us take you to a majestic setting of natural Costa Rican harmony. After picking you up, we drive our 4×4 safari vehicles into the rainforest on the hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Your guide will stop along the way to point out interesting flora and fauna, and there are opportunities to take in the incredible views of the ocean and countryside.

At a height of over 1,000 feet, we reach our private reserve. After a 5-minute downhill walk, this Jaco waterfall tour truly begins! We hike up the river using trails and bridges that criss-cross the water, allowing us to enjoy multiple smaller, interactive waterfalls and natural pools.

There are four different swimming holes and many waterfalls to get under. These natural pools will invite you to swim in fresh mountain spring water and submerge yourself under the falls for an invigorating massage. For the more adventurous, there are a couple of places you can jump into the pools from heights of 4 feet and around 25 feet!

When you’ve quenched your thirst for adventure, we make the 10-minute hike back to the truck. During the entire tour, we are surrounded by the beautiful Costa Rican virgin rainforest. Bring your camera to capture all the amazing experiences. Your guide will keep it in a dry bag and make sure it stays safe!
