For the experienced and inexperienced
Waterfalls are one of Costa Rica`s main attractions. There are numerous waterfalls along the south coast and are known for many associated activities, from swimming in the numerous pools, climbing the falls, basking in the natural jacuzzi formations, jumping into the deep waters, and feeling refreshed by the cool waters ..to bird and plant scouting.
A most well favored trip is one offered by Don Lulo. This begins above Dominical on horseback. Saddling up around 8 am the horses set out down toward the river, stopping on the way for a delightful “Tico” breakfast at Don Lulo`s house. While there plan on being entertained by their Scarlet Macaws and a very friendly toucan. After breakfast the horse and guide with take you through a jungle, cross two rives and then down the mountain side to the incredible spectacle of a double waterfall towering 150 and 65 feet in the air. The natural swimming hole below is 20 feet deep with a 3000 sq. ft. surface area. You can plunge into this crystalline pool or climb the waterfall with the aide of the guides and ropes.
Leaving this area around noon you will return for a sumptuous lunch of chicken, potatoes, rice, beans and other delights back at Don Lulo`s. The trip ends close to 2:30 back at the starting point.
