About
Our Full Day Waterfall Adventure really is a tour like no other from top to bottom. Our attention to detail on every aspect of this tour is second to none. There is very limited hiking on this tour with easy access to each of the 5 locations, so this tour is perfect for large families ranging in ALL ages as well as athletic capabilities so that no one needs to be excluded. We have perfectly curated this tour to combine that "outside your comfort zone" sense of adventure without compromising you or your families safety! You are given the opportunity to SAFELY and EFFICIENTLY do some things you may other wise not have the chance to do by licensed and EXTREMELY capable tour guides. However, you will NEVER be forced to do anything you do not wish to do, only encouraged to try something you may not normally do! Safety and detail are what we hold in highest regard on our Waterfall Adventure and you will see what we mean first hand when you book with Paddle 9!

A fantastic experience!
We will be talking and laughing about our day with Paddle 9 for years! We were a party of 3 60+ adults and two in their early 30’s, and everyone — even the ones who didn’t want to jump— had a wonderful time. Ismael, Ruben, Cory and Roberto were hilarious, but also knowledgeable, helpful and caring guides who helped everyone across streams and rocky terrain and made sure we enjoyed ourselves. Be sure to bring water shoes or Teva-like sandals to wear for this part of the day — you’ll be much better able to walk through the stony rivers and terrain. We also visited a sustainable tilapia farm and had a delicious lunch. Some in our group have dietary restrictions, and Ismael coordinated with the cooks to ensure that their meals were free from allergens. The final stop was Las Ventanas Beach that was yet another highlight. Along the way to the beach, Ismael told us about the Spheres of Costa Rica, and showed us an exhibit. If you love adventure, learning, good food and a lot of laughter, this is the day trip for you.

So much more than a waterfall tour
Nov. 2021
Don't let the name of this experience mislead you; this is SO MUCH MORE than a waterfall tour. Led by a group of extremely enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable locals, this day-long excursion takes you on what is sure to be the HIGHLIGHT ADVENTURE of your time in Costa Rica. Yes, the waterfalls are the focus of this tour, and they are certainly breathtaking but the real magic here is the interaction you get with nature, with your group and the amazing Pura Vida culture. I learned so much on this tour about the local history, wildlife and ecosystems, which makes it a great way to start your stay. I also learned a lot about myself and how far I am able to push my limits; I didn't think I'd be able to muster the courage to make the 30-foot jump on our final waterfall but Ismael offered me the support and inspiration to overcome my fear. And boy, was that jump worth it! The beach was also a nice final stop and the lunch spread at the organic tilapia farm was the best meal I had during my entire trip. There were about 14 others on the tour and we all agreed -- this was the best tour for fun and value any of us had experienced in this region of the country. Thanks, guys, for a wonderful day I'll always remember.

Amazing family experience!
Nov. 2021 • Family
I had family visiting me and town and I brought them to Paddle 9. It’s the best experience for them to see the most beautiful waterfall in Costa Rica. The guides are professional, and take great care of us. In fact, I stepped on a thorny plant (barefoot, not advised) and Roy our guide took time and care to clean out my foot. Super sweet!

MOST EPIC PART OF OUR TRIP - FULL DAY WATERFALL TOUR 🤟🏼
Nov. 2021 • Friends
The full day waterfall was an AMAZING tour!! Absolutely amazing. Very adventurous, but safe. Ismael and Corry were so professional, yet super fun.

From the ride to the start of the tour all the way to the end we were never bored. It checked all the boxes and was the perfect start to our first adventure in Costa Rica. HIGHLY recommend PADDLE9.

Exhilaration in Manuel Antonio!!
Nov. 2021 • Couples
From the beginning of the day my husband and I were greeted with energy and excitement from our guides Ismael and Roberto. We felt safe and well informed about the entire itinerary of the day. We were taken to 4 locations with waterfalls that increased in height at every stop. Personally I was very hesitant but got such great encouragement from our guides and was able to jump from the highest waterfall at the end. We highly recommend bringing rugged waterproof sandals (we had tevas), you’ll wear them all day. We stopped at a beautiful tilapia farm and had one of the most delicious meals of our trip, whole fried tilapia, rice, salad, tostones, yuca fries and juice. Roberto and Ismael were super helpful with photos and keeping our belongings safe and secure. The day ended with a trip to the beach before we headed back to our resort. We had an amazing day and would recommend this tour to anyone craving adventure, adrenaline and a true Costa Rican experience! Pura Vida at its finest/fullest!!

Paradise you should't miss
Oct. 2021
What a great day. Tour guides were excellent. They informed us everything we would do and asked if there was anything else we would like to do. We went to 3 different beautiful waterfalls. Jumping off rocks and sliding down the falls. When the rocks got to high we just swam in the pool with the beautiful falls next to us. The guides explained different things we could encounter. They went out of their way to make sure we seen native animals. We didn't't get to see a Tucan or Cayman yet but this tour we did. Lunch was one of the best meals we have had. Beautiful restaurant near the last waterfall. we ended with a nice dip in the waves of a local beach. Luis and I would love to thank Ismail and Cory for a great day.
