From the mountains to the Sea and everything in between, Costa Rica is filled with beautiful landscapes to explore. While our villas are surrounded by some of the best beach views and jungle forest, we also offer tour expeditions to the surrounding mountain regions for our guests to have a varied experience. The waterfall tours are some of our favorite. We want to feature them on our blog this week along with some stories of experiences there.
Nauyaca is one of the most stunning waterfalls in Costa Rica. It is situated in a river valley that is surrounded by lush, tree covered, sweeping mountains. There are a few different options to access it. You can ride horses, a truck, or take the hike. Once you arrive at the waterfall you can swim and explore. It is a breathtaking experience. We offer a guided tour that provides everything you need: transportation to and from our location, horses or truck, food, entrance, and a guide.
Here’s what a few of our guests have said about the experience:
“This is the most majestic place I’ve ever been.
I’ve always wanted to do this! I’ve imagined swimming in a pool of a waterfall my whole life and now here I am in Costa Rica living my dream.
“A bucket list item checked off for sure! ”
“It’s so incredible to be surrounded by so much natural beauty. I haven’t traveled much outside the US, but this is by far the best place I’ve ever been!”
“This experience was the highlight of our trip!”
“I was filled with wonder again at the sight of that waterfall.”
“The most wonderful, refreshing, invigorating swims of my entire trip to Costa Rica, and maybe in my entire life!”
The personalized services of our concierge Fabio are included in your visit at the Espadilla Ocean Club. We offer a variety of tours, this trip to Nauyaca is a rare experience we can set up. It is more challenging than our other tours, so we don’t always recommend. It is worth it for those who are looking for something different than the typical tourist destination.
If you choose to hike, note that it is not for the faint of heart, it is for avid hikers. For families we recommend taking the truck or horseback ride option. On a scale of 1-5 this hike is a 4. The views through the mountains are incredible and this waterfall is one of the most famous in Costa Rica.
