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.
Other things to note
You can drive to the meeting point (next to Neofauna Cr), or take a taxi and get there. I will wait for you in the place.

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.

Hey All, this was an exactly escape from the beach. A great experience of nature, physical fitness and peace. Do this trip, bring frozen water for it to melt, make sure you have tennis shoes or hiking and be ready for some cool pics and cold waterfalls. Ha! My sisters and I are black girls from thee city and we enjoyed every minute of this.

My waterfall hike was led by Emanuel's partner Josue. Josue was EXCELLENT -- knowledgeable, helpful, animated. We were joined by a neighbor's dog, which was a nice touch as the dog found hidden ways up the waterfalls. The hiking is not super-strenuous here, but it is important to wear shoes that are good on slick or wet surfaces. My trail shoes -- which are otherwise great for hiking -- were NOT GOOD for wet rocks. There are number of places where you climb up the side of waterfall assisted by ropes, so be aware of that going in. I'd say generally one should have good water shoes and be reasonably fit for this activity. The waterfalls and views were amazing. Highly recommend.

10/10 recommend this excursion! Em was AHMAZING and very knowledgeable. You could tell he was very in tune with the area + all the wildlife + plants, etc. I’m traveling solo + felt safe the entire time. If anything, I made some new friends today!! Can’t recommend this enough - it’s nice to have a local show you how + where to get off the beaten path. MAKE TIME TO DO THIS WITH EM! 🙏🏼💯

This hike was absolutely incredible! Josué was our guide for the hike and he was amazing, he literally held our hands through the harder parts. This is by no means an easy hike, but the work was well worth it! Oir guide was full of knowledge on the plants and animals and extremely patient with us. Would very much recommend for those who like a challenge!
