Beautiful beaches, dense jungle, exotic flora and fauna. These are a few of the amazing sights to be seen upon exploring Costa Rica. Many people come to visit us at Los Sueños Resort & Marina to relax and simply get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life but for those adventure seekers, there is an endless amount of tours and adventures worth exploring. Check out our list below of our top picks!

Enjoy an authentic Costa Rican meal before heading up the mountain to start your adventure. After a short downhill trek, you’ll hike up the river along trails and bridges to take advantage of the smaller waterfalls and natural pools. There are 4 different swimming holes to cool off in the fresh mountain spring water. Or, submerge yourself under the falls for an invigorating water massage. Don’t forget to enjoy your surrounding along the way. You will likely see small neon colored frogs, butterflies, and if you’re lucky you may even spot some monkeys or a sloth!
