NileGuide Expert tip:
Combine a waterfall and canopy tour for a great day's escape from Jaco.
Romance and adventure come together at these enchanting waterfalls a short trip from Jaco Beach; the Bijagual waterfalls are among Costa Rica's most beautiful and breathtaking sites to visit. Recognized as the highest waterfall in the Central Pacific region, the Bijagual waterfalls may be explored through a variety of options and angles, from hanging bridges strung between ancient trees, hiking steep trails up to the cliffs where the water plunges into the jungle below. Many tours combine horseback riding and hiking, and it's easy to spot lots of wildlife like monkeys, sloths, and especially exotic birds such as toucans and scarlet macaws.
