      Fun Excursion On Truck Not ATV- starving dog and puppies next door
      You will be picked up in town and then change to an open air vehicle truck; no ATVs. It’s fun! Moderate Short Hike to waterfall and back. Steep climb coming back and a bit slippery going down. Wear hiking shoes and then have water shoes with you. It’s in the shade otw down in the jungle so it’s much cooler. You will hike to one area where there is a swimming hole, two photo op spots and then at the top where you can jump 23 ft or 30 ft if you want into water. It’s not mandatory to jump or to leave. Lunch was provided at base camp where we switched vehicles. There is a bathroom there. The reason I’m doing 4 stars is the neighbor next door has a starving mama dog with puppies. The tour company says they feed her scraps, but every time they do, the German shepherd mix attacks her. It was horrible to watch. I contacted several places to see if they would help her but I didn’t have any luck. I have guilt leaving her behind. I bet the neighbor would relinquish her for $100. We just didn’t have the time before flying out to see this through. I’m sad for her and the puppies bc I think the tour guides non neutered male is the father. They need to do better to help that dog and puppies get care. It’s going to hurt their business if they don’t; as other animal lovers will see what we saw. It started the tour out very stressful bc of the aggressive dog attacking the other dog for food more than once and sad to see how skinny and hungry the beagle mix and puppies were. Maybe someone else can help. She is facing the shack to the right in the fence. 😢 Peta said they could help with photos and of course we didn’t get any.

      Great Experience!
      Lomar, our Tour guide was fun, knowledgeable and friendly! While driving on a winding road he was able to see specific plants, birds and other flora/fauna of interest and amazement! The hike was physically challenging, but the waterfalls, including the platform jumps, were exhilarating, fun and refreshing! Great experience!

      Excellent waterfalls hike-insist on Lomar
      To and from the waterfalls was seamless and our guide Lomar was informative and fun. If you don’t learn something on the hike, you’re not listening. There is nothing like plunging 8’ or if inclined, 30’, into invigorating water. We were a party of 6, 3 couples all strangers, all Americans. We had a great time as if we weren’t strangers. Food was great and was much needed later. The hike is moderately strenuous. If you can climb 3 flights of stairs you can do this. Request Lomar, you cannot go wrong. Pura Vida!!!

      What a fun experience!
      So much fun! Neither my husband or I had ever done this before. The guides gave us a quick lesson and made us feel very safe. Not once did we feel unsafe or scared. These guys know what they are doing and make sure you are comfortable every step of the way. The breakfast first at a local farm was delicious (we did the 7am tour). The ziplining and cliff jumping were awesome to start out with. You do need some physical ability to rappel and you also have to hike back up the side of the waterfall using ladders and ropes but you are clipped in to a rope for safety so I didn't think it was scary at all. I loved the whole experience and I'm usualy afraid of heights! The hike back to the truck was neat too, the guides stopped every so often to tell us about a plant or bug or whatever we came across. The open air ride to and from was awesome too! Beautiful views! We did all 4 descents and were pretty sore and tired that night but would do it again and highly recommend these guys!!

      Great for all levels!
      We did the combo tour to get a taste of everything in one fell swoop, and we are so glad we did! Authentic Rico breakfast, a fun ride up to the mountain ridge, then hiking, ziplining, repelling… we communicated in advance about the greatest and smallest in our party, and they accommodated us wonderfully. Four adults and four kids, the youngest was 3. The customer service was spectacular with booking, the guides were fun, safe, patient, and relaxed. We booked several other tours via this company and all were wonderful!

      Amazing Canyoning
      My daughter, Leeanne, and I went canyoning with our amazing guides, Luis and Leslie. It was so exciting. They made the experience so memorable with their skill and kindness. Judy

      Highly recommend the waterfall repelling.
      What a fun and exhilarating experience. The tour guides were friendly and funny. They made the group feel comfortable. Started off with a small snack/meal, which ended up helping for the excursion. The repelling was great but challenging. The zip line and jumping from cliff was a bonus. It was also exhausting because of the hike back to the 4WD trucks but manageable. Thank you for an awesome experience! Highly recommend!

      Best adventure on my trip!
      This was a fantastic hike. Easy to moderate difficulty. Guide was very personable and informative. A meal came with the hike. The waterfalls were fantastic. We were able to swim in all of them. They became deeper the higher we went. The finale was a 30 foot jump into a pool at the bottom of a waterfall. Exillerating. I would do it again and recommend it to others.

      Would recommend this to see wildlife and monkeys!
      We did the monkey mangrove boat tour and it was such a cool experience. My goal for my Costa Rica trip was to see monkeys and sloths. And we got to feed multiple monkeys and they climbed all over us. Our guide was great and would recommend doing this to see wildlife!! The views from the boat were amazing as well

      Best excursion ever!!
      This experience was awesome!!! Our tour guides were knowledgeable, kept us safe and most importantly so fun!! We got a delicious home cooked lunch! We got to learn so much about birds and animals during the hike portion of the tour and had a blast in the waterfalls!! The guides were awesome with taking photos and making sure we had the best time. We left a phone behind in the van after our drop off and the tour guides were over the top helpful and drove the phone back to us once it was found! 10 out of 10 recommend this experience, best thing we did in Costa Rica!!

      Best waterfall Tour ever!!
      This was an INCREDIBLE tour. Juaquin helped make our experience one we will never forget! He took so much time showing us things on our hike, very knowledgeable and kind. We had an absolute blast in the pools and waterfalls, it was more than what we expected. We enjoyed a delicious Costa Rican breakfast and coffees before we started the hike. This ended up being by far our favorite tour in CR and highly recommend it to everyone. You will not be disappointed!! Juaquin took so many pictures and awesome videos of us that we will treasure. We will be back to do this tour again.

      Incredible experience, amazing staff.
      I contacted the manager, Joe, who was very responsive when helping me book the tour. The guides picked us up promptly at the set time. Wilson and Joaquin were very knowledgeable about all manner of local animals and plants, and highly focused on safety. They made us all very secure and enabled a really fun day all around. Cannot recommend more highly.

      Amazing experience !
      This experience was second to none and we had the best time. Christian was our guide and he was such a knowledgeable and friendly person. The breakfast before the hike was amazing and the waterfalls were breathtaking. We loved every minute of our time on this excursion and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks Christian!

    Our guide! Joachim was amazing! He was very safe and informative. He was extremely professional and also was great at showing us the different plants and animals while hikking to the falls. When at the falls he always would take the time to scope things out first before we would dive in.

    My family went out on this expedition mid-March 2020. Our guide, Edouardo, was very knowledgable and friendly. The authentic meal that goes with the activity was very good and the 4x4 ride to the trail was fun too. My kids, ages 12 and 14, gave it a 9/10. I would give it a 5 star rating if it was not for the 388 US$ the activity cost for a family of 4.

    10 hidden waterfalls with local cuisine was the best tour I went in while in Jaco. The guides, Josué and Sebastian were amazing, they told us about local plants along the e hike. The waterfalls got better and better as we continued on the journey. We were able to swim in the pools at the bottom of several of the waterfalls and some people in our group even cliff jumped into them. The food at the end was delicious and lots of it. I highly recommend this tour for people who are in decent shape and looking for an adventure.

    Great extreme waterfall tour! Just as described - jumps from 2 heights which was exciting, rappelling quick course from a platform, 4 rappels down a waterfall (sections) then the big daddy over the edge! Overall we felt fsafe but some parts are a bit treacherous. We were a family with 2 adults and 2 older teens. Hike out was cool but be warned it is very steep up. Wonderful local breakfast, great guides and adorable dogs!

    We had an incredible experience today with Joaquin and Arnoldo. Those guys absolutely love their jobs and it shows! They made our experience exceptional! Fun, engaging, patient, knowledgeable, and passionate about their country. The ride on the jungle limousine was fun, the waterfalls were fantastic, and watching Joaquin and Arnoldo do backflips into the pools was quite memorable! Can’t recommend this experience enough!

    Awesome tour! We were a group of 14 and the tour was able to set up a private tour for our large group. The staff of Christian, Lomar, Alexis, Arnolda were terrific in getting the group through all the repelling safely with a lot of fun and laughs! This is not a easy tour however our group ranged from 21 - 60 and all made it with som effort. Highly recommend for the tour and terrific staff!!

    A completely fabulous tour. First being picked up in a great van with air conditioning, the tour guide was amazing, knowledgeable and very courteous. I missed somewhere that they were going to feed us, that was great because my teen was hungry. The food was delicious. From there a ride on a truck that takes you up into the rain forest. Our guide Lomar was a superstar. Knew everything about every plant and animal and pointed it out to us. When we arrived to the unloading spot, he offered us walking sticks and from there we started our descent towards the waterfall pools. They are breathtaking. Swimming in them is a joy and the guides are fantastic at taking pictures with out phones and keeping them dry and safe. They are so strong and will help you navigate all the rocks and the trail.
    I discovered thanks to my guide flora and fauna I had never seen before and while swimming in one of the pools, it started raining a little. The rainforest. An amazing day that ended with watermelon and pineapple and complete joy. I would just add to bring a towel for when you are done with the whole thing so you don’t stay wet the whole way back to the hotel. Amazing experience.

    My crew LOVED this tour. 5 kids (13-16) and 3 parents and everyone had an amazing time. Joaquin was our tour guide and he was fantastic. He educated us on all sorts of Costa Rican things as we went along the tour route and was beyond patient with ensuring everyone got to experience a thrill on this tour. Highly recommend this company and tour. You won’t regret taking this opportunity!

    Firstly, the guide is the most important relationship and Joachim was amazing! It was my birthday and this was on my list of things to do...jump into the falls. It did not disappoint. Joachim was so attentive, knowledgeable, had fun with us, encouraged us and added so much life to this tour. It was just us and it was so beautiful. Joachim shared so much knowledge that we absolutely loved. It added so much to our time here. A lot of firsts for me. A birthday to remember for sure and Joachim was the one that made it memorable. I would never have jumped without the joy he shared and fun he created for us. I cannot wait to come back and our family will definitely do it again with Joachim. What an asset he is to this company!!!

    Bring your swim shoes and tip money for the people that provided the lunch which was simple and delicious and of course the amazing guides. It was a hike to the falls and back so take your time. The scenery was gorgeous, lush and breathtaking. Joachim was super helpful and made it so easy. If I can do it with 2 bad knees...anyone can! Highly recommend this activity. HIGHLY!!
