Nahuyaca Waterfall

Activity Description

Departing from: Manuel Antonio

The walk from the entrance to the waterfall is about 6 miles round trip on a rural trail, with excellent panoramic views, appreciating at some point the landscapes, orography, as well as, different species of birds, mammals, reptiles and more. The Nauyaca Waterfalls are located in a canyon approximately eighty meters wide. One of the falls is forty-five meters high in free fall and the other twenty meters high in stepped fall, forming at the foot of it, a pool of a thousand square meters and six meters deep. Then there are other natural pools of smaller size, which can be used for the enjoyment of the whole family. Nauyaca Waterfalls in Costa Rica is the ideal place for nature lovers and adventurers where you will enjoy an amazing walk, swim, climb or jump from our waterfalls, take pictures and enjoy a wonderful day in one of the most beautiful places of the south pacific of Costa Rica.

For this attraction we have several options according to your needs which could be an 8 km horseback ride through different paths where tourists can enjoy the beauty of the landscape, as well as observe some of the wonders of the tropical rainforest. If you want to avoid the walk or you do not want a horseback ride you can also opt for a ride on a 4×4 vehicle to the falls and the best thing is that you will only have to walk 100 meters on steps to enjoy the waterfalls.
