Nauyaca Waterfall Tour

A Hidden Two-Tier Waterfall in the Hills of the Central Pacific.



Rate per person from $125

‘Nauyaca Waterfall Tour’ is perfect for:

Nature-loving couples, families, groups, and solo travelers who want to spend the day hiking and exploring a gem off the beaten path.

Nauyaca Waterfall is up the hills of the Central and South Pacific. Hidden amidst the tree-covered canyons of the area, this spot is ideal to get a dose of exercise and natural beauty.

Follow the Trail into the Forest

A van picks you up at your hotel in the Manuel Antonio area and takes you to the entrance of the Nauyaca property, in a trip across farmlands and the tropical rainforest. Once you arrive, the journey’s on foot!

Hike for about 45 minutes through a trail, admiring the lush flora of the area. Tropical birds, colorful insects, and scurrying lizards may pass by your side, so keep your eyes open to spot them.

Then the space clears, and you spot Nauyaca.

Nauyaca Waterfall Tour: A Hidden Gem

Nauyaca is a two-tier waterfall. The lower section (and the most popular) is 80-feet. This part is connected to a natural pool, where you can refresh yourself after the hike. Climb the rocks around it and jump into the water, or lounge in the riverbank to recover your energy.

Admire the forest that surrounds the waterfall, and then it’s time to climb some more. Behind the lower waterfall, up a rocky area, is your next stop.

This waterfall has a 190-feet face. Stay the good part of an hour admiring the view, snapping photographs, and relaxing by the water. Then hike back, and finish the tour with lunch.

If you enjoy exploring areas away from the usual crowds and immersing yourself into nature, this is the tour for you. Contact us and we’ll gladly help you make it a part of your Costa Rican vacation!
