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 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.
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 crisscross the river allowing us to enjoy multiple smaller, interactive waterfalls and natural pools. There are 4 different swimming holes and many waterfalls to get under. 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.
