First, you will visit the beachside town of Caldera in the province of Puntarenas, where you will make a brief stop at a private property where a few families of capuchin monkeys are usually spotted. If you are lucky, you may encounter some that are very friendly.
Right after the monkey spot, you will start heading towards the town of Esparza where you will enjoy a refreshing waterfall operated by a humble local family. The descend and return to the falls is steep but not extreme, you can get down and back to the top in approximately 5-10 minutes (each way).
Once you’re done with the visit to the falls, your driver will head over to a local restaurant where you can feast with a typical costarrican lunch.
If the conditions are favorable, you may visit Poza Blanca, a river pool featuring mud that is rich in minerals. You can apply this mud all over your skin, let it dry and rinse it off for a rejuvenating treatment.
Discover great scenic beauty and the relaxing murmur of the flowing water in a day that will allow you to be in direct contact with nature, breathing fresh air!
