About Pacific Journeys
Come and join us at Diamante Falls! After an invigorating hike up the mountain, and a dip in one of the natural pools, you will enjoy lunch in an amazing open air cave nestled between twin waterfalls perched high above the Diamante. We offer several tours to the top of the mountain, including hiking, both beginner and advanced rappelling, canyoning, cliff jumping and swimming in magnificent natural pools beneath the falls. We offer one day and overnight tours with accommodations in the cave. We also offer tours to Baru falls. This tour is set atop beautiful waterfalls ranging from 60 to 120ft. Once at the falls, you are first trained on how to properly and safely rappel on a small training hill. After completion of this training, you begin your exciting 120 ft rappel down the face side of Baru Falls. Once you complete the rappel, there is a short hike to a spectacular viewpoint at the bottom of both waterfalls where there is a large natural 20ft deep swimming hole. You then have the option to engage in a variety of activities listed below. The objective of this adventure tour is actually dual purpose. Firstly, to face the challenge of walking over the face of a cliff. And secondly, we have found that many participants also experience a deeper faith through this symbolic step. For many, this can lead to a joyful breakthrough in growth.

We went in with zero expectations and left blown away by the experience! Our guide Jake was outstanding. His knowledge was all encompassing regarding the ecosystem. The hike was both challenging and beautiful. the views were amazing! The falls were gorgeous and loved swimming in the natural pool at the bottom of one of them was invigorating. Water crystal clear. I would highly recommend both Jake Weigandt, our guide and the Pacific Journeys

This cannot be real! That's what I kept thinking the whole time I was hiking with these guys. You come to Costa Rica hoping you will get off the beaten track and see something you can brag about but, this experience goes way beyond that. So much so that you literally stop caring what others might think and just feel grateful for the journey. You must take the hard ass hike. You must see the epically beautiful gardens that live just below the clouds, you must stand at the edge of a thousand foot water fall and you must, must, must sleep in the ancient cave that burros cozily behind a raging falls. This is the real deal and I am so happy I found Pacific Journeys.

We loved Abraham and our adventure at Diamonte Verde Waterfalls and jungle garden! The hike was strenuous as we climbed what I think was 5000 steps but my family all trail runs in MT so we were fine with the exertion and loved the hike! Abraham seemed to know just the right pace the whole time we were hiking with him, never going too slow or leaving us behind when we were checking out the scenery. Once we got to the garden the fun started and we got to smell and taste dozens of different herbs, plants, fruits and vegetables. Our favorite was the "magic berry"! We also enjoyed the bananas grown right there in the garden as a snack and filled our water bottles out of a spring fed water source. Rapelling down the waterfall was a huge thrill! A little too much of one for my daughter who loved jumping off the other big waterfall into a deep pool! Carlos and Abraham exhibited their skill with kids and still got her to go down. She would have so regretted it if she hadn't! Lunch in the cave was AMAZING! And the guys were so sweet, and even made coffee after! Overall, our favorite adventure of this trip!

Pacific Journeys went above and beyond to give our small group of five an experience to remember. First, we accidentally showed up on the wrong day! Somehow their staff managed to work us into their schedule and welcomed us for the day long adventure. Second, our guides were kind, knowledgeable, and generous with their time and attention. We saw amazing wildlife including toucans, eylash vipers, howler monkeys, and even a sloth! The lunch they served at the tables behind the waterfall was absolutely delicious. However, the true generosity of the trip came when one of the women in our party slipped on the trail and injured her ankle quite painfully. Two guides took turns carrying her down hundreds of steps until a horse could be secured to take her down the rest of the mountain trail. This was exceptional service. One caveat I will say is that this is a very challenging hike. Many of us are seasoned hikers and one in our party is an avid cyclist riding upwards of 50-100 miles each time. He even said this hike was challenging. It is seemingly endless stairs with a steep incline and what goes up, must come down. Your reward for all of this hard work is breathtaking views, exciting wildlife, and very yummy meal. As long as you mentally plan for the strenuous hike, you will very much find this experience absolutely worth it!

My husband, adult daughter and son and I had the best experience. It is exactly as described on the Pacific Journeys website. Diego, Carlos and Abraham were great guides. Their knowledge and passion for plants, animals and insects was infectious. The meals were delicious. All four of us are well traveled and this was the experience of a lifetime.
