What you'll do

We’ll go to the cloud-forest in the mountains of Heredia on a LEVEL 4** hike that features two beautiful waterfalls and amazing landscapes. We’ll meet in Heredia city center and drive to a Protected Area where we’ll trek through a recovered cloud-forest with exuberant vegetation and some fauna. We’ll visit two waterfalls and if you’re up for it, swim in the pure, cold mountain water! After exploring the upper layers of the forest from atop a lookout point, we’ll head back to town to enjoy a "casado" in a typical lunch (included). Ages 8 to 17 pay only $20. PLEASE READ ATTENTIVELY: ** Level 4 hike means "INTERMEDIATE HIKE WITH GOOD INCLINES, SOME STAMINA IS REQUIRED!! YOU NEED TO STAY HYDRATED. GOOD FOR SOME KIDS AND TEENS. NOT FOR BEGINNERS ". ** Starting time is 8:00am. ** We’ll drive 11 Km (7 miles) to the venue and we’ll hike about 3 hours. This experience takes 4 or 5 hours. ** This 4 Km trek has a 160 meters altitude gain (2.5 miles hike in 525 feet incline). ** The trail is not paved and does not have handrails. Some rocky, steep or muddy terrain must be expected. ** Do not sign up if you have important knee problems, you are not moderately in shape or you never take walks since these situations create stress and slow the trek for others. ** Mind the facts I just described as they are specific and clear. ** Please also read "Guests requirements" section.

Where you'll be

Tapir Mountain is a private forest reserve with plenty of water streams, tropical trees, birds, small mammals, butterflies, mushrooms and ferns. There, we hike three hours to a recovered cloud forest and breathe the cool mountain air. Once we reach the second waterfall you may enter the chill-water pool, or not! Back in town, a delicious lunch is waiting for you to recover your strength. You'll love to share the experience of this new trail!
