Hiking and Waterfall Tour in Jaco

Save

Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Take your pick of a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your guides at the main office in central Jaco. Bring your camera, which will be kept in a dry bag to keep it safe but handy for action shots. Ride a 4x4 up rugged mountain roads to reach the trail head at an elevation of more than 2,000 feet (610 meters). From here, hike into the rain forest to a river, while your guide points out native plant and animal life along the way.

    At the river, you can choose to walk along a trail or put your balancing skills to the test and hike upriver along rocks and boulders. Pass by more than 10 different waterfalls of varying size that flow into inviting natural swimming pools. Take a dip in the pools, and feel the relaxing, massaging rush of water while standing beneath the cascades.

    For an added thrill, work up the bravery to jump from natural ledges down 20 feet (6 meters) into the polls below. Your guide will be on hand to ensure your safety and enjoyment each step of the way. The 4-hour adventure concludes with drop-off back at the starting point in Jaco.

    Eduardo made the trip! He has an incredibly eye in the jungle - stopping to show us exotic birds and educating us on plants in the jungle. He has killer skills driving the ATV up the mountain - half the fun of the trip. And he showed his chops on the waterfall jumps. He kept the
