Things to do (optional)

Canopy tour at Hacienda Bar National Wildlife Refuge

This tour imitates the flight of the chestnut-mandible toucan, as it leaps off a branch, swoops down through the forest, and then up in to another tree. On this tour, eight separate cable rides take you from one ridge top to another, across valleys and streams. There are 14 land-based platforms and 1 tree platform with a view of the coast.

Canyoning tour

Take the five minutes walk from the base camp to the top of the canyon where youll receive thorough safety instructions before starting your adventure. When you reach the first waterfall, which is 5 meters, you'll then be taught the fundamentals and proper techniques of rappelling. Then you are on your way with five more waterfalls to go.

The largest of the falls is 25 meters. The canyon ends at the Uvita River where there are some pristine swimming holes to relax and reflect. Then the Canyon cruzer will pick you up and take you back to the base camp.

Horseback riding to Nauyaca Waterfall

This horseback tour is over a 12 kilometer route with three resting periods. You'll depart from the paved road and arrive about an hour later at Don Lulo's house, where you will have a delicious typical Costa Rican breakfast. After breakfast and observing animals in the family's mini-zoo, the ride continues on for 25 minutes until you arrive at the waterfalls. You may swim in the beautiful natural pools the waterfalls have formed.

On the way back, you'll stop once again at Don Lulo's house to enjoy a delicious typical Costa Rican lunch. After a well-earned rest on the hammocks and a delicious cup of coffee, you'll begin the return trip back to the starting point.

Kayaking in the mangroves

Explore one of the most important mangroves of Central America located on the Terraba-Sierpe River. Discover the beauty of its canals and enjoy the great variety of flora and fauna. You'll also have the opportunity to find six different types of mangrove trees and learn the importance of their ecosystem.

Ocean kayaking
