Experience the true meaning of “Pura Vida” this guided trip takes you to the rainforest in the hills above the Pacific Ocean to a majestic setting of pure Costa Rican natural harmony. After a short drive from Jaco beach, you will arrive at our base camp. After fueling up with an authentic Costa Rican meal, let’s hop in our 4×4 safari vehicles and drive up the mountain to our private reserve. Your guide will stop along the way to point out interesting flora and fauna and the incredible views of the ocean and countryside. After a short (5 minute) downhill hike we will start our adventure through the river. We will hike up the river using trails and bridges that criss-cross the river allowing us to enjoy multiple smaller, interactive waterfalls and natural pools. There are 4 different swimming holes and many waterfalls to enjoy. These natural pools will invite you to swim in the fresh mountain spring water and submerge under the falls for an invigorating massage. For the more adventurous there are a couple of places you can jump into the pools from 4′ and up to 25′! When you are done we have the 10 minute hike back to the truck. During the entire tour we are totally surrounded by beautiful Costa Rica virgin rain forest. Bring your camera to capture all your amazing experiences and your guide will keep it in a dry bag and make sure it stays safe.
This is an all day quest geared toward adrenaline junkies but also suitable for the more subdued. There are no jumps that are required so if you are travelling with an adventurous spirit but just want to watch or swim that is fine too. It starts with a drive south to the wild and rugged Osa area. We will trek to five different waterfalls in three locations with each one getting bigger and more beautiful. You can observe the falls from dry-land, swim in the pools or climb up and jump right in! It is up to you to decide what you are up for.One of the falls has a rope swing that you can swing and then jump off into the natural pools below.The next Waterfall has jumps from 8-40 feet and a natural water slide. We will then enjoy an authentic Costa Rican meal at a typical local restaurant. After lunch we will enjoy a 4×4 trek deep in the mountains to arrive at arguably the most magnificent waterfall in all of Costa Rica. When conditions are right you’ll have the option of cliff jumping from 20, 30, 45 or 75 feet into the deep pool at the base of the 75′ falls. During this tour you will be deep into the Costa Rica Rain Forest. The first 2 locations have a 5 minute hike to the falls and the last hike is only 30 minutes.
Canyoning or Canyoneering is an exciting multi-sport adventure that is gaining popularity for the masses. We have combined Ziplining, Waterfall Rappelling, and Hiking along with optional Swimming and Cliff Jumping as high as 25 feet. Canyoning is no longer just for die hard adventurers and expert climbers anymore. At Jaco Canyoning you have the opportunity to experience true Canyoning even if you have never been in a harness. Just 20 minutes from Jaco we will arrive at our base to start your adventure. After fueling up with an authentic Costa Rican meal let’s hop in our 4×4 safari vehicles and drive up the mountain over 1000′ to get to our private reserve. Your guide will stop along the way to point out interesting flora and fauna and the incredible views of the ocean and countryside. When we arrive at the top you will be outfitted with latest and safest gear from Black Diamond in the USA. You will be instructed on the safe and proper use of our equipment then begin your 5 minute hike to the first zipline. After 2 “zips” over the river we will do a dry training rappel to familiarize you with the proper technique. A short hike down river and we will have some swimming and cliff jumping (4-25′) opportunities if you desire! Now it is time to get wet! 4 rappels through the waterfalls and YOU will do it all on your own. At all times you will be “safe and backed up” by your guides! After a short climb up we will exit the canyon and hike 15-20 minutes back to the truck. By the time you are finished you can say “I am a canyoneer!” and can check this off your bucket list. Fun for the whole family – we have taken people from ages 7 – 78 on this exciting excursion. All you need is a little sense of adventure! Note: If you have any physical limitations that you are unsure of please contact us to see if this is an issue or not. The hike out, while steep, is on an excellent trail and is only a ¼ mile.
