Discover the stunning beach and secret waterfalls of the rainforest


The Tour starts in Puerto Jimenez, where you will hop on a private 4x4 vehicle with your guide for a 40 minutes ride towards Matapalo, there are high chances to spot animals, so you can stop and take nice pictures during the ride. Matapalo is a remote small, laid-back beach town located at the tip of the Osa Peninsula in the southern portion of Puntarenas, the beaches in Matapalo are pristine and the water is perfect for swimming. It is also considered to be one of the best surfing spots in Costa Rica, but because of the access is never crowded so it makes it even a better spot for those looking for peace and relaxation.
Matapalo is located in the middle of a big Natural Reserve, which is famous for the biological diversity and high possibilities for spotting animals like monkeys, sloths, macaws, poison dart frogs and many other forms of life. Here you will access a trail that will lead you to a beautiful waterfall where you can refresh and enjoy the natural beauty before heading back to Puerto Jimenez.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful day with Jose in Puerto Jimenez. We hiked through rivers and forests near Matapalo, walked to a glorious beach, saw many animals and birds-- all of which he could identify for us. We had a slight hiccup in our ships arrival, and he graciously changed our time so we could get in our full tour. His knowledge of the flora and fauna is extensive. He is passionate about sharing the wonders of his country. We had such an enjoyable time with him. We could not recommend him more highly.
