We found this great private park to hike in which included waterfalls, hanging bridges and a lot of up and down hiking. The road back to the park was a challenge in itself as much of it is a dirt road with ruts and rocks. Once you get back to the park the cost of entrance is $15.00 per person... More

We were the first car to arrive, and no one was there to take our $15/person, so we started the hiking trail. There are canopy platforms in the trees connected by suspension bridges, well maintained trails, beautiful waterfalls, several great swimming holes, and plenty of butterflies, lizards, and birds to see. When we finished our 2.5 hour walk, there was... More

Follow the sighs off the main highway just south of Parrita to reach this park. It was pouring while we took our walk around and was surreal to be in the rain forest. Didn't see many animal due to the rain but it didn't limited how beautiful this place was. For 15 bucks , 20 if you want lunch this... More

Quiet, peaceful and magestic! We climbed to the top which took considerably effort if you're not in great shape. I loved the challenge!! We were surrounded by trees and plants I've never seen before. The bridges were fun and a little scary, although there was never a doubt that we were completely safe. The water is amazing! Rivers and waterfalls... More

amazing location and seamlessly takes you around the jungle, the mountain and the hanging bridges are amazing too. However, the place lacks something. it feels as if you were walking in to someone's back garden. no reception, no welcome party (just the ladies in the kitchen) good lunch, but for the price they charge you would except a bit more....

Rainmaker was a wonderful experience. You're completely surrounded by beautiful, untouched rainforest. The waterfalls were awesome, and the water was so clean that I came out feeling like I just left the spa!!

We drove here in our rental car and agree with everyone that this park is very different from Manual Antonio. We were there yesterday, August 14, and the park lived up to it's name because it rained hard at the end of our hike. Make sure you take a walking stick - they are free to borrow where you pay,...

We have been to this area many times but had not walked the suspension bridges or splashed in the wonderful river and falls and pools of he Rainmaker Park. That was our loss and now that I know about it, I will recommend to everyone. Previous reviewer that pointed out the poor signage coming from Jaco or Esterillos area was... More

We read many reviews that said to go here instead of Manuel Antonio, and luckily, we have plenty of time so we did both! They are completely different types of outings, except for the fact that you are in nature and walking. MANUEL ANTONIO -TONS of animals...and people -Beautiful beach -Cost for a family of 5 (kids ages 6,8,9) was... More
