Rainmaker has a nice rainforest walk, but the park is obviously past it's prime. Pricey $20 per person entry. 1-2 mile "hike" through the rainforest and along Streams with waterfalls, was a pleasant, decent trail with many stairs, but was never difficult. A number of swinging bridges and tree platforms all challenge your trust due to deferred maintenance. The river... More

TheRainmaker hike was awesome. $20 per person. The suspension bridges were fun and the waterfall swim was a good way to cool off. We went during the week and we only saw 3 groups along the way. We felt like we had the park to ourselves. It was so peaceful. We arrived in the early afternoon so we missed the... More

The park was beautiful and the lunch we had was very well priced and one of the best we have had in Costa Rica. We were travelling with our 3 young boys. Because the trails were so steep and the railings were either inaccessible or not safe my husband had to hold our 5 and 3 year old's hands for... More

I wanted to go here since it was a little out of the way and much less crowded. I wanted to relax at my own pace. I thought this was a very dense jungle area but was still beautiful. Some of the swinging bridges seemed a little iffy, especially if you are a little larger than average, but an awesome... More

Had a morning hike through Rainmaker with a guide, amazing views of lush jungle, the hanging bridges were a little scary but mostly fun. My 7 year old had no problem with them. A lot of fairly rugged terrain, but it pays off with a beautiful waterfall swimming hole that had the coldest water I experienced in Costa Rica! It... More

Luis took us on our tour through Rainmaker. It was a nice contrast to the Antonio Manuel park experience. This is a much quieter place. Do not expect to see so much activity with monkeys and sloths. Instead, you will see butterflies, birds, snakes, bugs, etc. There are fun bridges to cross which are high above the rivers. Towards the... More

Active tour for relatively fit and active folk. True eco-tourism. Good lunch at the end for $7. Recommended.

Mario was our fantastic guide in this untouched rainforest park. He is very passionate and knowledgeable of the plants & animals. Even our ride to the park was entertaining as he explained about the local area. The views were breathtaking!

We took a great tour at Rainmaker this afternoon. Our guide, Luis, was very knowledgeable; kept all of us on the trail and shared a lot of info about the native flora and fauna. The walk was moderate (some uphill climbing) and a great stop at a refreshing waterfall pool before heading back. We would do it again!
