Beautiful place. The tour pretty much cuts the hike down to about 30 minutes instead of maybe an hour / hour and a half in case there’s someone in your party that might not be able to make a strenuous hike.
Nice but not a priority

Guide Edgar was very good and knowledgeable. Paying the extra money to be driven close to the waterfall was WELL worth it. The falls were lovely and the swimming ok but not spectacular. On the whole however, we also felt the experience was a little overpriced relative to other activities we did (rafting, Manuela Antonio, canyoning). Great experience if you have time but not one we would prioritize if you only have a couple of days.
Swimming at the falls.

Swimming in the waterfall was amazing! A bit chilly. Our guide, Eduardo, was friendly, funny and personable. We had a great time and saw a dangerous dart frog. Thank you so much!
Breathtaking views, serene and beautiful!

Nauyaca Waterfalls tour is unanimously the most memorable tour we did during our stay in Manuel Antonio. While the drive from Manuel Antonio to the waterfalls (which is closer to Dominical) takes little over 1 hour, it was a very comfortable ride in a minivan. Once we reach the waterfalls entrance, there is a 20-minute hike down to the waterfalls (wear shoes with good grip) -- both levels of the waterfalls were gorgeous! There was sufficient time to swim in the water and take photos. We can get very close to the waterfalls, and good swimmers can dive into the pool of water in the upper level. The hike back is uphill and can take longer. Our tour guide and the lunch was excellent! The ride back was very comfortable as well! We saw toucans, and the overall view throughout the tour was breathtaking. We would highly recommend this tour to all!
Definitely check this out!

It’s everything you could want in an excursion. Waterfalls, caves, rivers, it was all really fun. The first waterfall has this little pool like area where you get to swim! I highly recommend it!

Excelente aventura! Increible Naza la guía, contandonos todo para que conozcamos cada cm de la selva.
Las cataratas son realmente hermosas y vale la pena ir. Todo el camino de selva es hermoso!
El servicio fue genial desde que me buscaron en el hotel hasta la vuelta.
Recomiendo esta agencia!
