Departure at 8:30 am from the Platanillo town, just 10km from Playa Dominical. The adventure begins in our customized Toyota 4x4, on the way to the Natural Reserve through the rain forest.
After crossing a bridge over the Barú River we continue on the road discovering several sparkling streams which rise in the reserve. We then leave the car and follow the hiking trail to the Hiding Waterfalls, a close contact experience with the rain forest where you will see the rich biodiversity while swimming in the natural pools under the waterfalls.
Continuing on the road in the 4x4 until the top of the Coast Range - to appreciate the 360-degree view, Punta Dominical, Caño Island, and El Diamante Waterfall are some of the natural jewels that you see on a clear day.
Finally, with the sound of the crystal waters of the creek as background music, you will enjoy a typical Costa Rican lunch wrapped in banana leaves.
The Hiking is 1km (0.62 miles). Please note that it´s a path in the Rainforest, the path is clear, but is not flat, there are some steps, ups and downs, roots and rocks in the way. We instaled hand rails in the more intense parts. A person in normal shape without any training or hiking experience can do it. You will be with a local experience guide, in smalls groups. Please note it´s not recommended to hike in any conditions for people with recent surgeries, health problems, or for sensitive seniors. You can choose the not-hiking Safari Tour version, please require it in the booking, it´smandatory. By the another hand, if you are experienced hikers, and want to walk more, for example 6 km ( in Costa Rican Rainforest the distance feels longer, due to humidity and hills ), please let us know.
