Our group of 6 adults and 4 kids (aged 4-8) visited Rainmaker in mid-November and we had a great time! Rainmaker is located about 30 min drive from Quepos and the last few miles are on a dirt road so it is best if you have and SUV, especially in rainy season. We were supposed to meet a private guide there but he never showed up so the on-site manager offered to send one of the workers with us to show us around. He was a very nice guy who spoke little English but was super friendly and interacted well with the kids. The walk itself is somewhat strenuous (mostly due to the muddy paths) but none of our kids had an issue completing it. The scenery is very beautiful and lush and we crossed several (maybe 5 or 6) hanging bridges which were quite exciting. They do move a lot, especially when several people are walking on them, but that was part of the adventure. They seemed pretty secure and even though I am afraid of heights I made it OK. There are two very pretty waterfalls and we stopped at one of them to allow the kids to splash in the water. It is a bit chilly but they did not mind ??? We saw a green & black poison frog which the guide picked up and let the kids touch (only the parts that are not poisonous) and we also saw quite a few birds in the canopy. We did not see any other animals but the hanging bridges were really what we came for and we had a great time. The loop took about 2-2.5 hours to complete and it drizzled a few times so bring a poncho if you don't want to get wet. Overall it was a great experience and perfect for kids, even younger ones.
