Nauyaca Waterfalls is a totally Costa Rican owned family tourism company, dedicated for several years to tour operations. These are horseback riding tours, traveling through the farm that border with two impressive waterfalls from Río Barucito.
These majestic waterfalls are one of the main attractions of the southern region in Costa Rica, not only for their natural scenic beauty, which offers the tourist moments of recreation and fun, but also to participate in different activities such as horseback ridign tours, swimming, climbing, jumping and to observe much of the beauty of the tropical rainforest, among others.
Nauyaca Waterfalls is the ideal place, not only for those in search of tranquility and nature, but also for adventure and excitement lovers.
The horseback riding tour is over a 12 kilometer route with three resting periods, departing from our office, passing by Don Lulo’s house, where you will have a delicious and typical Costa Rican breakfast.
The horseback riding tour takes approximately from 45 minutes to one hour up to “Don Lulo’s house”. After breakfast and observing animals in the family’s mini-zoo, the ride continues on for 25 minutes until arriving at the waterfalls. You may swim in the natural pools the waterfalls have formed.
On the way back we stop once again at “Don Lulo’s house” to enjoy a delicious and also typical Costa Rican lunch. After a well-earned rest on the hammocks and a delicious cup of coffee, we begin the return trip to our starting point.
The horseback ride in Costa Rica offered by Nauyaca Waterfalls is one of the best experiences that a tourist can find and enjoy in our country.
Ecotourism in Costa Rica at it's utmost with us!
The ecotouristic trip is done through paths and roads where tourists can enjoy the beauty of the landscape and also observe some of the wonders of the tropical rainforest.
At Nauyaca Waterfalls we are committed with the environment’s protection and conservation and in recent years we participated in a ecotouristc conservation project, the reforestation of certain erosioned areas.

Nauyaca Waterfalls Reviews
We had the opportunity to hike to Nauyaca Waterfalls yesterday morning. Absolutely beautiful hike. The falls at the top were the reward! We swam in the cool water after sweating through the hole... more »
Beautiful waterfalls and cool pool to swim in. Strenuous 2.5 mile uphill hike to get there. Don't attempt unless you're in good shape. Take water. more »
Very nice pair of waterfalls in what is undeniably a touristic spot. This is all well organized and maintained. There is a 4km hike (about 2.5 miles) to get there and then the same back - the path goes up and down so take your time and bring water. The waterfalls themselves are really beautiful and wroth the effort, but if you want to can take a truck that departs I believe every hour and lets you stay there for two or three hours (which is enough), or you can go on horseback. In both cases (truck or horse riding) you need to reserve in advance. The parking is at the bottom of a very steep dirt road that can be tricky in the rainy season, in that case I'd suggest a 4x4.
Just visited today with my family. The falls were big, with strong current in the water. May be because we went in the rainy season...not sure on that. We did the hike and it was great! Our youngest is 7, and she did well, but it was fairly vigorous with a lot of hills. There are many steep steps right at the falls, so even if you ride by truck or horse you will have those steps. The parking lot seemed pretty secure. There are restrooms and changing rooms at the parking lot and at the falls. Half way to the falls there is a rest area. This is where the tours stop to eat, but they have coke, powerade and water for sale. Have cash for that, but the ticket office takes a credit card.
