This park hike was beautiful through the jungle with its suspension bridges and waterfalls. We didn't see any wildlife. I thought the $20 entrance fee was high compared to Manuel Antonio park which was $16. Swimming in the water near waterfalls was pretty cool though. I'm glad we went. It's close to Quepos but off the main road onto dirt... More

Our family is a 3 year old, 8 year old, parents and grandparents. We spotted colorful beetles, centipedes, plants and walking over the many swinging bridges was challenging/exciting. We swam at the waterfall, played in the creek and ate here. It was a wonderful area to explore with only a few other people. We had a tasty lunch at the... More

We did the self guided tour and it was easy to follow and really nice. I am sure the guided tour is filled with a lot of information about the flora and fauna but we went on a day when the guided tours aren't available. The park is well kept and quite nice. I suggest early morning as it can... More

He showed us all the creatures that lived in the rainforest....he was so personable and knowledgeable....it was suppose to be a 2 hour hike But he took his time to show us all the creatures that were out, I never felt...

A little bit of a workout but easily done even if you're not in the best of shape. Lots of hiking wet trails and of course the bridges. Didn't see much wildlife but still well worth it. Definitely take advantage of swimming in the pools of the waterfalls! We got rained on so make sure you keep your camera in... More

The park is accessed down a 7km dirt track road. We visited the park on a Sunday. Unfortunately they only have guides available Tuesday - Friday so we went around on our own. We saw poison dart frogs, lizards and some beautifully coloured butterflies (although I should imagine with the aid of a guide you would see a lot more!)... More

Luis was a wonderful tour guide through the jungle with flashlights. He pointed out so many frogs, insects and plants. I would have found less than a tenth of what we saw. It was great fun and not too strenuous. I want to go back in the daylight to roam the paths and swim in the waterfall pools.

We visited Rainmaker Conservation Project in April. Our group of ten included young children and adults in their 40s. In direct contrast to the overcrowded Manuel Antonio National Park, Rainmaker stands out for its relative isolation and traffic-free trails. We felt as if we had the place to ourselves. Only once did we encounter other hikers, and that was at... More

Nice quiet private park. Very few people, so you have rain forest for yourself. Many hanging bridges and platforms to walk. Great 2hr walk with the guide. Delicious typical CR lunch and fresh lemonade at the end for 7$ .

Just 45 minutes from Jaco is this really cool private park. Our family spent an afternoon here. It is worth paying for the private guide to show you the birds, frogs, plants and other cool things. The highlight of the hike is the hidden waterfall and pools and the adults really like the huge suspension bridges above the jungle floor.... More
