    Nauyaca Waterfalls
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    We will take you on a hike to the majestic Nuayaca Waterfall. The hike is about a 40 minute trek through the jungle. Once at that waterfall we will take you in the swimming hole of the bottom waterfall (80ft), show you places to jump (not mandatory) and explore areas around the top waterfall (160ft). This is truly a one of a kind gem, and should be a stop on everyone's list while in Manuel Antonio
