Less than 30 minutes north of Jaco you can hike to a waterfall and take a swim in the pools. The hike is steep in areas, yet almost any ability hiker can do it. The round trip may take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending upon your speed.The cost is about $20 per person, which goes to pay the family who owns the land and lets us enjoy their exotic property. You will need to travel there by car or taxi, and typically a taxi driver will wait for you to return for just a small fee.
