Your breath-taking adventure begins with a pickup from your hotel in San José and drive through the wonderful Costa Rican countryside. You will arrive to our first stop: Tarcoles River. Famous for its large American Crocodiles, the Tarcoles River is home to one of the world’s largest crocodile populations in the wild and they are very easy to admire from the Bridge. Then we will taking lunch at our Ranch "Base Camp" once we finish we will begin with the activity. Experience the true meaning of ‘Pura Vida’ as this guided trip takes you to the rain forest in the hills above the Pacific Ocean to a majestic setting of pure Costa Rican natural harmony. We will take a 4×4 drive up the mountain over 1000’ to get to our private reserve. 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 criss-cross the river allowing us to enjoy the 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.

Fun for the whole family – we have taken people from ages 7 – 78 on this exciting excursion. All you need is a little sense of adventure!

Note:If you have any physical limitations that you are unsure of please contact us to see if this is an issue or not. The hike out, while steep, is on an excellent eco-trail.
