We had a guide take us through and would highly recommend it. We would have missed SO much if we had done it on our own. The trails are well marked and easy to walk. There is a lovely waterfall for swimming halfway through. You can eat lunch when you are finished, and it was delicious. They provide walking sticks... More

My son, his wife, and I went hiking in Rainmaker. It was great! We spent just over 2 hours walking all the trails fairly slowly looking for wildlife. That time included about 15 mins swimming in a pool and scrambling up and down to an upstream waterfall. The cool water was very refreshing. We didn’t see a lot of creatures... More

It's a pity that such a great park is unknown and underestimated. This place is pure heaven, full of nature, amphibians, reptiles, amazing vegetation and landscapes. The bridges give an incredible view on the valley and it's possible to spot many different animals during the trip. The guides are very good both in English and natural knowledge. The guy I... More

The views are great, suspension bridges a bit scary but fun. Not much in terms of wildlife, but worth the money just for the scenery. You need to be in reasonable shape to do the outer loop all the way round.

This tour will be for someone who can do alot of walking and can handle large amount of stairs. THankful for the walking stick which they provided us. THe waterfall near the end was extremely cold but felt good after the long hot walk.

We greatly enjoyed our night tour of Rainmaker Park. Our guide spotted an owl hidden in the tree, a snake, a bat, many frogs, and a few other critters. You absolutely need a guide to get the most out of a day or night hike through the forests of Costa Rica!

I had read about this place before arriving in Costa Rica. I loved the idea of swinging bridges. Nothing I imagined was as amazing as this was. We all trekked our way on these bridges. High up in the trees, embedded in the rain forest moisture is everywhere and you are truly immersed high above ground in this magical world.... More

We did this park on our way out of town. We did the tour solo, I really do not think there is a need for a guide at all. I would actually recommend not going on a guided tour because then you have to share the swimming spots with 10+ strangers. It was so nice to have the entire pool... More

The Rainmaker consists for a set of looping walks through the rain forest overlooking the Pacific Ocean 7km away at the end of a moderately difficult dirt road. We managed to get there is an ordinary sedan but a 4WD would give more confidence. The private reserve offers a choice of looping walks through the rainforest rising up a few... More
