Day 4

Hiking, Rappelling, Canyoning!

Today you will experience a truly incredible part of Costa Rica, and you will definitely be off the beaten path. You’ll be hiking in a very remote area called Las Tumbas, named after the abundance of hollowed stones in the area, once used by the indigenous people for grinding flour. The Diamante River flows through the heart of the valley and two kilometers below its natural source, surrounded by 1200feet of cascading waterfalls, you will find the “Casa de Piedra” or as the locals call it “The Cave”. This amazing open air cavern is set behind twin waterfalls and will be your accommodations for the night! This overnight excursion involves hiking to waterfalls, swimming in crystal clear jungle swimming pools, cliff jumping and multiple rappels and of course overnighting in a jungle cave where your guides will prepare dinner for you.
