What you'll do

Antonio, Josue, 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.

Other things to note:
If you have children younger than 7 years of age just ask us as it is typically not an issue but we need to set a standard guideline of 7.

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 :)

Antonio & Josue 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

A very new nice excursion. I’m 65 years young and the hike was not an issue. The guides were helpful and helped everyone in difficult passes. It rained in the rain forest toward the end which was fantastic. We only saw a couple of goats 🐐... bring water shoes.
