Tour description:
Explore the spectacularly breathtaking Nauyaca waterfalls. The Nauyaca Waterfall is located about 20 minutes from Dominical, deep into the heart of the tropical jungle. This magnificent waterfall has two sets of falls measuring a combined 61 meters (200ft) tall and large natural pools.

Though this site can be rather remote, MASS makes this excursion an easy and fun one. The tour will begin with hotel pick-up and the 25-minute drive to Dominical. From there the group will traverse through scenic back roads and into the hills enjoying grand views of the ocean, mountains and jungle on the road to reach the trail to the waterfall. While many visitors to the Nauyaca have to take a 2-hour trail by foot or horseback, MASS will bring the tour group to their own secret trail that provides quicker and easier access.

From there, the group will enjoy a short hike with a beautiful river crossing to reach the waterfall from a difference entrance. The hike will culminate into a wide canyon with lush greenery where guests will be awestruck by the magnificent cascading falls. Once at the Nauyaca waterfall there will be the chance to enjoy the view, take pictures, swim in the refreshing natural pool, walk underneath the falls and even climb and jump off of the many cliffs. At this time a picnic snack on the side of the waterfall will be provided. After enjoying this amazing natural wonder, a delicious lunch of typical Costa Rican food will follow and the return trip will ensue.
