Pacific Journeys

Come and join us at Diamante Falls! After an invigorating hike up the mountain, and a dip in one of the natural pools, you will enjoy lunch in an amazing open air cave nestled between twin Waterfalls perched high above the Diamante. We offer several tours to the top of the mountain, including hiking, both beginner and advanced rappelling, canyoning, cliff jumping and swimming in magnificent natural pools beneath the falls. We offer one day and overnight tours with accommodations in the cave. We also offer tours to Baru falls. This tour is set atop beautiful Waterfalls ranging from 60 to 120ft. Once at the falls, you are first trained on how to properly and safely rappel on a small training hill. After completion of this training, you begin your exciting 120 ft rappel down the face side of Baru Falls. Once you complete the rappel, there is a short hike to a spectacular viewpoint at the bottom of both Waterfalls where there is a large natural 20ft deep swimming hole. You then have the option to engage in a variety of activities listed below. The objective of this adventure tour is actually dual purpose. Firstly, to face the challenge of walking over the face of a cliff. And secondly, we have found that many participants also experience a deeper faith through this symbolic step. For many, this can lead to a joyful breakthrough in growth.

Los Cusingos Neotropical Bird Sanctuary

Reviewed By Chomondley - Los Gatos, California

A wonderful (flat) hike through a protected rain forest with Andreas, our knowledgeable guide, who saw things we didn't. His telescope brought the forest to life, with beautiful birds, dragon flies and stories of the various plants. You should wear hiking boots or sturdy sneakers, as the paths not smooth. Takes about an hour to walk through and then make sure to see the museum where Dr Alexander Skutch lived - it's because of him that so much more was learned about the birds in the forest when he first moved out here in the 1930's. He became a very well known naturalist and died just a week before his 100th birthday. This is a lovely, off the beaten track place, and make sure to visit early morning, when the birds are around.

Eco Chontales Waterfall

Reviewed By casaba842017 - Alajuela, Costa Rica

If you are adventurous enough to know something different, this is for you!! It takes a while to get to the place, on a unpaved road. 4x4 vehicle is not required, but it could be difficult to get there in a sedan. Once to are over there, there are around 600 m of walking to get to actual waterfall. The path could be difficult if you are not used to do physical activity, but there are horses available either to get you down the waterfall when you arrive, or to get you back to your car at the end. The service is excellent, there are also people available to help you when required. They have a little restaurant with local food, that is also excellent!! In summary... An amazing place to visit!! 100% recommended.
