We thought this tour would be seeing pretty waterfalls and my kids were so excited to find out that it was really jumping off waterfalls, going down waterfall slides and exploring caves. Super cool trip, great guides and a delicious lunch at a tilapia farm.

This tour will never get old. Our guides were informative (gave knowledge about the area and how to jump/slide), safe (was with each of us every step of the way), patient (with me- I was petrified to jump), fun (Matty was our DJ and added songs to the "Waterfall Tour" playlist on Spotify), adventurous (took opportunities to entertain us with cool tricks), good hearted (encouraged beach clean up but not insistent).These guys were so kind and genuine... the only thing I would have liked was to eat lunch with them to maximize our time with them. Talipia Fish farm was cool and the lunch was super tasty! I wanted the day to turn into a lifetime... it was that great!!! Thank you Paddle 9!!! Forever grateful for the memories!

We took the Paddle 9 off the beaten path waterfall tour and couldn't have been happier with the experience. The team of guides which was lead by Klaus were fantastic. They made us feel at home, challenged us to go outside our comfort zone while keeping us safe, and provided us with a wealth of information about Costa Rica and their culture. We did a lot on our trip but nothing topped this all day experience. Don't miss it!

This was such a fun tour! It was totally family oriented and lunch was included! We went to three waterfalls, at the first waterfall we were aloud to jump from either eight or fourteen feet (into water), the second was a 30-foot water slide, and the third was a jump from a tree(into water)! We also went to a beach after lunch with an incredible cave! This is suitable for all ages (all activities are optional) and so fun!

Matty and Clint showed up five minutes early (which we weren't expecting because everyone is on tico time). We weren't sure what to expect on the tour. We booked the half day waterfall tour...left at 845am and didn't get home until 445pm.
We started the tour going to a small waterfall where you can jump in and get a start on the adventure. On the drive to Nauyaca falls we stopped at a fruit stand where they picked up fresh fruit to be cut (we bought pineapples, mangos, passion fruit, coconuts loaded with lots of water, plantains to take back to the house). The hike was beautiful and the waterfalls were gorgeous. The guides even helped us get some fruit off the trees! On the way home we ate at Santos (all this food was included in the tour...except the stuff we bought for home) and that was delicious! Excellent experience and would highly recommend!
