For those of you who have been here during this hot summer, Rainmaker Park is the perfect place to cool off swimming in a waterfall pool. It will take your breath away when you first jump in and then you don't want to get out. Enjoy hiking over swinging bridges, great views and a Zen experience in the jungle. Pre-purchase... More

This park offers the opportunity to experience the rain forest from below and from above. The trails wind through the jungle and climb up into the canopy. Four or five bridges link the trees. It is a hot experience as is most everything in this part of Costa Rica, but the swimming hole at the bottom is sheer heaven, so... More

We were unsure of making the drive down the dirt road to a place that had gotten mixed reviews. The manager at our hotel said she wouldn't go because it was "dangerous." That was all it took for my four teen sons to insist on going! They loved the whole thing. The rope bridges totally looked ramshackle--made of ladders and... More

This park is a must do hike! Way better than the Manuel Antonio National park. Our family of 6, 4 kids under 11 made the 2.5 hour trek and loved every minute. The suspension bridges were amazing! Pools for swimming were cool, but refreshing after the humid hiking. They only accept cash so bring $20 US for every person 8... More

Then scenery was pretty but $20 per person is too much for the condition of trails and bridges We were told the entry fee was only $7 prior to going. It was quite a shock to be told $20 at the entrance but it was a really long drive down a dusty road and we were with friends and all... More

The rainmaker is a great place to spend a few hours experiencing nature and Costa Rican wildlife. The hiking is a great workout, the suspension bridges are amazing and the views are incredible. You can swim in a waterhole under a waterfall and it is one of the few excursions you can do without a guide. Definaty worth the 20... More

It was very uncrowned and the bridges were like being at a fun house- swayed a lot but I do believe they are safe. The river trail below is very pretty along the water with several places to take a dip. Well with the $20.00 fee and 6 mile dirt road to reach it. Did not see any animals but... More

The park is great, very few people I don't know why not it was one of the best of our trip . The trails are nice and the hanging bridges are really neat. There's a very nice waterfall and good swimming. For $5.00 you can get a great lunch at the park. We didn't have a guide but I would... More
