What You Can 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 4×4 up rugged mountain roads to reach the trailhead at an elevation of more than 2,000 feet (610 meters). From here, hike into the rainforest 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.
