$60 for everything....! Included a horseback ride up to the falls, included a nice breakfast on the way up, and a delicious lunch on the way back down. They definitely give you enough time to enjoy the waterfall, go swimming or just hang out. I am a lover of waterfalls, and this is one of the best ones I've visited. The waterfall was very full, and powerful, but the locals come up there and jump off the falls, and even brought out an innertube on a rope to help you get under the waterfall and up on the rocks in case you want to jump off the falls too. I didn't do that, but a lot of people did. There's also some rocks to the right of the falls that are only about 8 feet high that you can jump off. The horses were a lot of fun...and some of the horses, including mine, liked to be in the front and would push their way to the front. I highly recommend this activity. We stayed in Quepos and it took approximately one hour to drive there to be there by 8am. Was a nice drive, and no problem getting there. 3 of the peeps in our group hiked up to the waterfalls, and that cost them $5 for entrance fees. It's about a 2 1/2 mile hike up.

This was my husbands first time on a horse. The guides were super nice and helpful and the food was INCREDIBLE. The only complaint was the terrain was a little muddy but we went during the rainy season so.... But I would still highly recommend this to anyone near Dominical.

I have never done horseback riding so it was a new experience. The staff at nauyaca were very helpful and friendly. They made sure they gave us a horse that would match our experience with horseback riding. This wasn't a boring ride around a park. We rode down hills passed little ponds, rocky routes, muddy areas and areas where you were close to a drop. It was great! Once we passed all that we got down from the horses and walked til we arrived. At a beautiful waterfall. Breath taking. Then we walked back down to the bottom of the waterfalls so we can enjoy the river. We swim we jumped from the rocks it was great. After an hour we rode back. Oh and the tour includes breakfast and lunch with was amazing. While we were eating we saw monkeys, toucan, turkeys and parrots. It was an amazing experience.
