The Extreme Adventurer Mixed Adventures

This is an all day quest geared toward adrenaline junkies but also for the more subdued. There are no jumps that are required so if you are travelling with an adventurous spirit but just want to watch or swim that is fine too. It starts with a drive South to the wild and rugged Osa area. We will trek to five different waterfalls in three locations with each one getting bigger and more beautiful.

1 - Your Adventure Begins
After picking you up from Herradura, Hermosa, Jaco or Quepos we will head South along the coast to the first waterfall in Dominical with the rope-swing. After swinging and swimming we will drive about 15 minutes South to Uvita to the 2nd set of falls. Here we will practice jumping (if you want) from about 15' and then move up from there. We will also be able to slide down a 33' natural water slide and cliff jump from 40' if you desire.

2 - Lunch, Swim, DIVE!
Off to a wonderful, unrushed Costa Rican lunch and then drive deep in the mountains to begin our 20 minute hike to the most beautiful waterfall in Costa Rica! Your guide will show you how to safely climb up through the face of the waterfall to cliff jump or dive from 25' or 33' into the deep water below. For the really adventurous there is an opportunity to jump from 75 feet!! With all your desires for swimming, jumping, flipping and diving quenched we will drive back to Jaco for a GREAT night's sleep.

This tour runs daily all year round.

There is no age limit on this tour as it's suitable for everyone from the subdued to the adrenaline junkies as, although we may be in adrenaline filled environments, no activity is mandatory, and all water activities are to be done at your own discretion.
