Come and join us at Diamante Falls!

After an invigorating hike up the mountain, and a dip in one of the natural pools, you will enjoy lunch in an amazing open air cave nestled between twin waterfalls perched high above the Diamante.

We offer several tours to the top of the mountain, including hiking, both beginner and advanced rappelling, canyoning, cliff jumping and swimming in magnificent natural pools beneath the falls. We offer one day and overnight tours with accommodations in the cave.

We also offer tours to Baru falls. This tour is set atop beautiful waterfalls ranging from 60 to 120ft. Once at the falls, you are first trained on how to properly and safely rappel on a small training hill. After completion of this training, you begin your exciting 120 ft rappel down the face side of Baru Falls. Once you complete the rappel, there is a short hike to a spectacular viewpoint at the bottom of both waterfalls where there is a large natural 20ft deep swimming hole. You then have the option to engage in a variety of activities listed below. The objective of this adventure tour is actually dual purpose. Firstly, to face the challenge of walking over the face of a cliff. And secondly, we have found that many participants also experience a deeper faith through this symbolic step. For many, this can lead to a joyful breakthrough in growth.

This excursion made our trip to Costa Rica complete only a few days in on a 13 day trip. The time behind the falls was magical and almost dreamlike. Falling asleep to the sights and sounds of a thunder storm was like nothing we ever experienced before. Hiking to and swimming at the base of the upper falls was AMAZING!!!... More

I did this trip with my teenage children. We walked up to Diamante Falls and camped there over night. We were the only people that day.. Just the 5 of us. We were cared for by Lucia and Pablos. They told us about the trees and animals as we walked to the falls. They took us around the garden part... More

Our hike today was so much more than an adventure. It will always be a treasured memory for our family that began as a hike to a waterfall, but ended up being an amazing journey with two guides that treated us as family. The splendor of the scenery on our hike which included breathtaking mountain views of the lush countryside... More

My husband and I did a night in the cave along with the rappelling and cliff jumping. It was the best part of the trip, my husband wanted to stay the whole week. No bugs got to us, and sleeping behind the waterfall is amazing.

We did an overnight in the "cave" which is more clearly described as sleeping under a waterfall. The hike up was strenuous, but well paced, and our guide Jake did a great job of explaining the area and all of the plant life along the way. We stopped in the "garden" that the group runs, and our guide let us... More

We signed up for the overnight Diamante falls tour(#4). This whole excursion was incredible and well worth the money. I can honestly say that our tour guide, Jake, was probably the most knowledgeable guide I have ever encountered. If you decide to go I would request him. I have went on many other adventures around the world, but this one... More
