Off the beaten path & totally worth it!
Aug 2021
Rainmaker is wonderful. Not crowded like Manuel Antonio & so such a different experience. It was just the 4 of us on the tour and saw 2 other parties & that was it. The hike is stunning & the bridges are not for the faint of heart. I liked them all. Property is so pretty & we had the waterfalls to ourselves to swim in. Lunch afterwards was yummy as well.

Enjoy your Day in Rainmaker!
Jul 2021
Wear swimsuits and spend time in the pools, besides the fun hanging bridges! There are 8 or 9 of those. We went on a sunny day, but I would take raincoats since it's usually raining. It's a fun hike with quite a few stairs. But not a hard hike. We saw lots of lizards, butterflies, a couple frogs, and so much beauty! We had from age 9 to 65 with our group and all had such a fun day! They charge $23 for entrance only. This has to be CASH. It's $30 if you want the meal and it was very good. We got a couple buck off for a group discount. It was a fun and memorable day! We swam in the pools and took about 4 hours there enjoying ourselves and watching for beauty in nature and wildlife.

Incredible
May 2021 • Couples
This was incredible! Ann helped us set up a guided tour which we highly recommend. Our guide has been working there since 2003, so very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the wild life and plants. He was also able to spot things much quicker then ourselves. We saw poison dart frogs, vipers, and lizards. We did go in the rainy season so we highly suggest a change of clothes. The distance was only about 2 miles so if you are not a huge hiker, this is great. We would absolutely do this again!

Challenging but fun!
Apr 2021 • Couples
Stopped by here on our way back north from Manuel Antonio. A little off the beaten path, so we were a little worried at first but well worth it! We didn’t wear our bathing suits so that cut down on the time we were there but the hike is beautiful, challenging and fun! If you wear your suits you could spend as much time as you want swimming in the beautiful swimming holes! Don’t need a guide, it’s very straightforward. Lots of photo opportunities!

Hike with suspended bridges and waterfalls
Mar 2021
Great hiking opportunity with waterfalls, canopy trails, suspended bridges, and swimming pools. The road through Río Seco is roughly graveled, but definitely worth the trip.

Easy hike with nice waterfalls, natural pools and suspended bridges
Jan 2021
Nice park with an easy trail to hike. As you complete the trail, you walk across suspended bridges, admire waterfalls, and you can stop and swim in the natural pools. A great workout! Just found it a bit expensive, $20 USD per person.

So much fun
Jan 2021 • Couples
We enjoyed this park the most during our weekend visit to Manuel Antonio. Very very few people as In less than ten. We loved all the connecting hanging bridges and platforms. Had fun in the waterfalls and pools. Easy side trip on the Way to the Manuel Antonio park from the north

An absolute must to complement Manuel Antonio
Dec 2020
I spent a few extra days in Quepos and saw a review of this park nestled up against the mountains. I followed the advice of another reviewer and decided to give it a try. It was a highlight of my trip! The trails are gorgeous with many waterfalls throughout. I was offered a guide for a small extra fee, but declined because I had intended to take my time taking photos and didn't want to feel rushed. While I did come across one poison dart frog, I'm sure I missed so much more around me. Next time I will definitely opt for the guide and then maybe cirlce back for photos that I might want to take. There are a few natural pools along the river that you can take a dip in that are beautiful and look safe. Please do yourself a favor and visit this park. You won't regret it!!!

Night tour with Jose
Mar 2020
We did several night tours in different parts of Costa Rica and all the guides we had were great and we saw different things each time. We had Jose for our Rainmaker tour and he found snakes, insects, toads and frogs. He was very enthusiastic and energetic and an expert at taking close up photos for us on our smartphones. We got some superb pics including of a glass frog which we hadn't seen anywhere else. He also made sure our group was kept safe by providing everyone with a stick to walk with and telling people to stay close to him and not to touch anything! So the jungle experience was great but we were a bit disappointed with Jade Tours (reviewed separately) due to poor organisation, poor condition of the minibus and poor food at the end.
