What you'll do

Just 5 minutes from the center of Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, you can move from the beach to the tropical rainforest, as easy as literally crossing the Street, doing this you will enter the Kekoldi indigenous territory.

We offer you secure parking from where we will begin to walk, and with the simple fact of crossing the main street and moving a few meters, we begin to dive into the forest, first by crossing cacaotales, then we continue to pass about three humble huts of indigenous families. In the depth of the forest we'll see abundant species of timber trees, some with more than 200 years of safeguarding these territories, many species of plants and shrubs identified with healing properties, a wide variety of trees, plants and palms such as chonta and suita that provide materials for the construction of the traditional Bribri house.

Following our path we continue in the forest until we approach our great surprise, for this we descend a bit to the KEKOLDI river, when we arrive there we will walk a little upwards, until we encounter an imposing 45 meters high waterfall with a really vertical waterfall. Here we will enjoy a good time, swimming and appreciating the forest at this majestic place.

After enjoying and delighting in this paradisiacal place we have to return while enjoying the wonderful forest full of life, with abundant wildlife.

Hello experience seekers I'm Roberto Lynch, come join me, visiting my favorite waterfall in Costa Rica and all its secrets, natural beauty, wildlife and swimming hole. Let's get off the beaten path and live truly authentic, natural and cultural experience.


Let me tell you a little about myself. I'm a professional in eco-tourism, graduated from the University of Costa Rica, with 10 years of experience working as a tour guide but most importantly helping maximize the overall experience in Costa Rica off the people that I get to meet on a daily basis.

Thanks to my education I have the tools to sharing with you científico and cultural facts on our trail.

My goal is to share with the people who visit us the vibrant landscape that the Talamcanca area has, in addition to its unique and interesting culture.

Where you'll be

Enter the Kekoldi indigenous territory, where you will also have the opportunity to live a truly authentic, natural and cultural experience.

We move from sea level to the mountains of Talamanca. Hiking deep into the jungle in search of a massive waterfall very few people know about its existence.

You'll encounter an imposing 45 meters high waterfall with a vertical water fall, in a dazzling scenario worthy for an Avatar or Jurasic Park movie.

"Memorable. Thrilling. More than I expected." These will be the words you use when you take this tour. The hike itself was a highlight, trekking through a trail that is obviously not often used. Hearing the life in the trees. Watching out for colourful frogs, toucans, and howler monkeys. That is worth the time and energy in itself. But the real icing on the cake is the waterfall at the end. It was almost too good to be true. Floating in this pool of water, watching this 50ft waterfall tumble down the rocks is unlike anything I've ever experienced. I remember putting my head underneath the waterfall, thinking "I'm living in a memory I will have for the rest of my life". To say that this experience was worth every cent and every second is an understatement. I'm trying to figure out a way to come back and do it again. It felt personal, secret, local knowledge that is only shared with a select few. I have not enough words to recommend you to take this tour.

The tour was amazing It's a little difficult hike, the air is hot, and there's some muddy places you can slip on, but that gives a real jungle vibe, plus Lynch told me a lot about local plants and animals, and indigenous people, who live in the jungle But the best thing was the waterfall in the end This is hands down the best waterfall I've ever seen, and the water itself is pretty warm for the river Overall great, really worth it
