....And you will enjoy some of the most magnificent views offered in Costa Rica. We ventured to Rainmaker Park after it being suggested that we go. We almost turned back after seeing the path; we are 58 and thank goodness are physically fit to climb the semblance of "stairs" being rocks or tires or... nothing but gravel to the top of the trail; we walked one at a time over the swinging bridges which were actually aluminum ladders tied together, thin plank boards and chicken wire covering the boards and holes in them. We held on tight to the ropes as we made our way over, sometimes the most scariest of swinging bridges. This is not for the light hearted but for the adventurous. I must say; that we are proud of ourselves for doing Rainmaker as we were rewarded with specular views reaching from the Canopy as far as the Pacific Ocean and enjoyed the sounds and beautiful waterfalls. We didn't see any snakes and that might be because we were watching our footing almost the entire time :-) But at the end, we saw a dart frog. We were alone during our trek; met some young 'uns heading up. We said to ourselves; there might be times they might think of turning back, but saying "if those old folks can do it we can" :-) Truly an adventure we are happy to have made; remember though, it is not for anyone that has weak knees and definitely if you have a fear of heights, perhaps just remain at the base and enjoy all the beautiful and unusual birds. It's $15 to go, no credit cards accepted; an extra $5 will get you a fresh made local lunch and an extra $6 an ice cold handcrafted cerveza; Perrovida is an award winning brew that we found was a great way to reward ourselves!!
