What you'll do

Josue, Antonio, or Daniel will be guiding your Experience.

If you are looking to experience the real culture, nature and beauty of Costa Rica, this is the Experience you are looking for.

We will take you to Las Monas (the monkeys) Rainforest around 5 minutes away from Jaco. It is a 25 minute hike in to the jungle you will be learning about the natural vegetation used for medicine by the natives of Las Monas.

The Experience lasts 2.5-3.5 hours depending on how long you would like to be at each waterfall and swim in the natural pools. You do not have to swim if you do not want to ;)

Once we get to the Waterfalls you will get to swim in the 10 natural pools or jump from the top of the waterfalls.

On our way back you will have the pleasure to taste the local cuisine at La Casita del Sabor (The Home of Flavor), cooked by the Grandmother of Las Monas town. It is the perfect tour if you want to be one with nature and local culture.

Hike starts easy then gets a bit more difficult so not suited for anyone with a handicap. Approximately from the start of the river to the 1st waterfall is 1km (15-20 minutes) then will see new waterfalls every 50-100 meters.

Chris moved to Costa Rica in 2010 to get back to nature after building a business in the USA. It was the best move he had made and really found true happiness within himself. He met Antonio almost immediately after moving to Costa Rica. They became brothers. Josue is Antonio's brother. Known for his big smile :)

Josue & Antonio are native and working in tourism for 10+ years now, working with thousands of people from all around the world every day.

Chris & Antonio came together to form Playa Hermosa Vacation and soon became Superhosts on Airbnb, in which they coordinate 100% of their house guests trip. Now they want to offer these experiences to everyone

Our group felt very connected with Josue, our host. We felt this was a special local experience as this was far from the “touristy.” We appreciated how he looked out after us with transportation and food and even got out of his way for taxi at night time and to the airport for the real price. Thanks for sharing your life and country with us. Pura vida!

Great adventure, the waterfalls are just splendid but just be aware that the hike is pretty physical. Josue, the guide is exceptional and will help you and keep you safe. Bring water, hiking shoes that have a good grip and can go in water as well, SPF, dress comfortably (work out clothes), bring a set of change if you want because you will be wet.but overall very fun experience Josue is the best, vey nice and attentive!!!!!!

This was a great adventure. We jumped, swam and climbed. I would highly recommend. I got a lot of exercise doing this lol. Although I wish there was more wildlife here.

This was our First Costa Rica adventure and it was incredible and all we hoped it would be. Learning about Costa Rica flora and habitat along the way fun. The food was great. The tour was wonderful in every way.

Notre Guide était Daniel et il a fait un travail exemplaire. On lui a posé 1000 questions et a su répondre à chacune d’elle. Il connais ce parcourt sur le bout des doigts, chaque roche glissante, chaque section plus difficile, il a été très aidant pour ma conjointe qui parfois avait de la difficulté. Il a également été interessant à écouter sur tout les sujet concernant la foret et le parcourt. Un gros merci à lui et son équipe!
