October adventure and bomb food!
Ivan_M
, Oct 2021
This was an awesome experience! Pablo was my guide for the day and he was very nice, professional, and informative about the habitat. It was so much fun jumping into and swimming the refreshing water pools. Great moderate hike up to all the waterfalls with plenty breaks. October is low tourist season so if you prefer smaller groups and feel like you have the place to yourself come then. Highly recommend Playa Hermosa Vacations! And to top it off Pablo’s mom’s restaurant provided us the best Costa Rican home cooked meal ever!! Check in and pick up point for the tour is in the centro of Jaco, small office next to Cafe Bohio. Nice comfortable shuttle van.

Dangerous in rainy season!

Our tour guide did a great job of trying to keep us safe, but didn't tell us anything about the medicinal plants, or really point out any of the wildlife. If that were the only thing, then this tour probably gets 4 stars. But trying to walk up a fast moving river with water coming directly from the mountains, in the rain, and the water comes up to your waist or at times even chest... This was no joke. We're young, active people, and we had another young built guy with us who was also shook at the end at how dangerous this tour was. Other tours like this doing similar activities would have helmets, and ways to secure the people. We literally were walking on slippery rocks without any security in the middle of a rushing waterfall. It doesn't matter what shoes you take, that's dangerous. I believe that in the rainy season, there's no way that families or elderly could ever do this hike. Even the swimming was a bit dangerous as the quick stream pushed us up against trees or sharp rocks. Any time the girl in our group crossed the river, she basically had to be hugged by the tour guide to get across (and there were around 50 crossings no joke!). If you book this tour, expect to spend 30% of the hike in the water! And we didn't see waterfalls 9 and 10 because the rain and the rushing river tore down the bridge... What makes a tour company think that humans on a medium hike would want to be in conditions like that?! Not a medium hike! If anything, extreme and dangerous, only for the adrenaline seekers. One of our group spent the next 2 days just recovering from the muscle aches that the "hike" produced. A person couldn't really enjoy the surroundings because they were too busy making sure not to be rushed away by the river. Even though our guide did his best to keep us happy, and the lunch was good (even though after all the stress it just made us sick), this is a tour we in the end regret going on. We can imagine that in the dry season the experience is very different and much better. We wish we were warned before hand, that the rainy season turns the hike into an adrenaline activity (which we wouldn't then have signed up for).

Awesome time

The hosts were very very knowledgeable and informative.. The trex up to see the 10 waterfalls is way more than a hike. You have to climb ropes and rocks and it is awesome for those who have the stamina my 10 and 11 year old boys loved it . The lunch was amazing I highly recommend highlights highlights of my stay in jaco

Way better than I expected

Pablo and Will were so patient and helpful for an older lady in our group with asthma who struggled with some of the technical aspects of ascending wet stones as we climbed from waterfall to waterfall. They truly served as great guides—friendly, encouraging, helpful, informative, and competent. They also encouraged a few seeking extra challenges along the way as we used ropes to climb up the sides of waterfalls (not required for the trip but available for those seeking more of a challenge). Eating at pablo’s mother’s soda was a huge bonus afterwards—great local food. The guides were sincerely caring snd endeared us more to the beautiful nature available during this experience.

First time here in Costa Rica with my two girl friends. This excursion was very informative; learned a lot about the vegetation. Waterfalls were beautiful, better yet the sink holes were amazing. Our tour guide Danny Leon was the best! If you are into hiking, this excursion is for you!

Nice and scenic hike, with plenty of waterfalls to swim in or jump into. Our guide was really friendly, funny, and made sure everyone was safe while hiking, and had a great time. Food was also delicious.

Chasing waterfalls! Jose was great, some waterfalls were definitely harder to climb up than others ... the lunch at the end was delicious! 10/10

We had such a great time on this tour! The waterfalls were beautiful and Josué was a knowledgeable guide. The area is privately owned and only rented to a few tour companies and we didn't see anyone else the whole tour. There is a bit of a walk/hike, but it was definitely worth the reward. The meal at the end was fantastic as well. Highly recommend!

Costa Rica 10 Hidden Waterfalls
Kevin_W
, Mar 2020
Antonio, the guide was helpful, courteous, knowledgeable, friendly, Considerate, and spoke fluent English. Each waterfull was amazing, great experience, loaded with wonderful memories. This is moderate for most of the trail, BUT, a few climbs were extreme requiring the use if rope assist for climb. Must have good stamina. The meal at the end of the tour was delicious and plentiful bounty.
