Living in the Rain Forest as we did for 4 months, we did not need to do the typical "zip line" kind of adventure that everyone asks about..we were already living that forest. .this adventure is more like a love of a lifetime than a momentary 'affair." Karl was understated and interesting...not once did we feel like we were receiving the "what tourists want to hear" kind of 'blah blah blah.' from him...We moved at our own pace, took a lot of pictures, in areas that were often "off the grid."
We saw an interesting waterfall, not a small task in the very dry summer,) bought some wonderful organic coffee at a mini plantation, and saw a breathless snapshot of life in rural Costa Rica. I never use the word 'awesome', but the views this trip lays out for you when you get to the top of the mesa and look down to the beaches of Dominical, Dominicalito and the famous "Whale's Tail" formation that defines this part of the Osa Penensula are without parallel..
One caution: We were told that the hike to the waterfall was doable for a "69 yr old woman with Cancer." That well may be, but it was not possible for a 68 yr old woman with a new knee, and nearly killed her strong 80 yr old husband...... in other words, the waterfall part of this route is not for anyone who is not very strong and has good balance. On the other hand, we had our own quads, and at 69 and 81, 50, 59, we had a remarkable 5 hr trip. After 4 mo in Costa Rica, this was by far our best adventure. Do not miss it! One of the few things we would do again in a heartbeat!
