What you'll do

We will meet at the base of Jaco mountains, its 5min from town. This is where we start a beautiful hiking for 45min, next to a River thru the forest. You will see 7 waterfalls, and many natural pools for swimming. If you want to jump from them thats optional. If you want, we also can climb using ropes as rapel to get to the final and highest waterfall. Its an intermediate-advanced level.

I am a local Costarican guide, certified and authorized. A passionated nature lover. I have hiked for 15 years, like to climb, be sorrounded by nature and jump from waterfalls. I like to show my country, explore and share the beauty of these places. Also I just got the Wilderness First Response license.
Hope you come to do this great tour and have a good time. Pura vida.
Live the life you love!

Where you'll be

We will go deep in the mountains of Jaco, to a very unique place. Very preserved, full of nature n adventure, you will have lots of fun. I will explain you the biological n geological formations as well. River has very fresh water to swim during the hiking.. Such a good idea. In lucky days we may see animals (frogs, birds). We may see other hikers, but never crowd.

Emanuel is een zeer kundige gids, die goed rekening houdt met zijn publiek en interessante zaken weet te vertellen over de natuur. De wandeltocht is interessant en de watervallen zijn magisch. Top ervaring!

Emanuel was an amazing host! He was truly knowledgeable about the rainforest and different trees/plants/fruits. He made it extra special by giving us all coconuts and a special type of fruit! He was adventurous and pushed us to make it to the level three of the waterfalls, which were breathtaking! Thank you so much Emanuel!

This is a very unique and special experience. Swam in waterfalls, jumped off the rocks and learned a ton from our amazing guide, Emanuel.

Daniel was our host for the tour and we had an amazing time. I would definitely recommend this for anyone visiting Jaco and looking for a little adventure, good exercise, fresh water swimming, and some beautiful sightseeing. You truly can’t get this experience anywhere else. It’s definitely a bit of a challenge, but nothing too crazy. The water feels amazing to swim in, the entire walk is full of stunning views, and a sweet little dog from the animal shelter even followed us partially along the way. Do wear shoes / clothes you don’t mind getting completely wet and bring a water bottle (we filled ours in the waterfalls.) This tour was definitely a highlight of our trip and we even recommended it to our neighbors at the condo we stayed at. Thanks so much Daniel!
