This was honestly one of the most memorable "excursions" I have ever experienced. Our guide, Mike, was first class -- full of knowledge and provided us with an amazing adventure while still making us feel safe. The waterfalls Mike chose for us to visit were outstanding and better than expected. The last waterfall we visited was a once-in-a-lifetime event. We swam out to the waterfall, climbed up the face of the waterfall via ropes that Mike set up to a 20 foot cliff where we all completed a jump that was thrilling but not overly terrifying. For those of us who were brave enough, Mike took us up to a 40-foot point (appx.) where we could also jump from -- probably the scariest but most exhilarating thing I have ever done. If you are looking for an all-around spectacular Costa Rican experience, Costa Rica Waterfall Tours is the perfect fit.

We had the most amazing day on our waterfall tour. We were picked up at the Marriott by a friendly and well versed driver/guide. The trip up the waterfall took about 40 minutes and along the way we saw macaws and toucans. It is a bumpy drive up a dusty mountain (in dry season) but it was so much fun! Once at the falls parking area, we had a short walk downhill to the bottom of the falls. Along the way we saw leafcutter ants on parade, ladybugs the size of my thumbnail and grasshoppers the size on my palm. Very cool. Our guide was attentive and helpful. He carry all of our electronics I a waterproof bag, took photos for us, helped and reassured all of us that we could do it. There were three opportunities to jump and plunge into pools. At the end of the climb we were rewarded with fresh sliced pineapples while we cooled down. Highly recommend this adventure for families of all ages and abilities :)

Let me start with the positives. Hannah, at the office, was so helpful with local information and so very pleasant. Christian, our guide, was wonderful. He taught us so many things about our surroundings and was patient. A negative, only because I must be honest for other viewers: we wish we were told that it was dry and our experience was a little limited. We could have planned accordingly. We were able to jump in to one pool and go down deep in another. The rest of the tour was hiking through shallow water from the falls. We definitely did not do 10 falls and our jump was only 10 feet, which was disappointing for my daredevil husband and son. It was quicker for us because there were only three of us. Tour lasted only 3.5 hrs with drive time. Still fun though.

Climbing the waterfall was an exciting 4 hour adventure we will never forget. Our guide, Cristian , was great and added so much to this positive experience. This tour is a must for those who are adventurous and want to see the natural beauty of outdoor Costa Rica, and our guide, Cristian, is an example of the Costa Rican people at their finest. He is very articulate, knowledgeable, kind, and friendly. Bring your camera and good walking shoes.

This was an adventure our family decided to try without knowing much about this activity. We were all surprised how much fun we had. It was my two kids (22 &19) favorite activity while we were in Costa Rica. Our guide, Christian, made all the difference in the world. He showed us how to navigate climbing up the waterfalls and where to jump safely into the waterfall pools. The fresh cut pineapple (cut while we were there) was a perfect way to finish this exciting adventure.
