A wonderful history of the Nauyaca Wateralls...
Don Lulo and Doña Ruth came to this region of Costa Rica 49 years ago. While still very young and beginning a new stage in their lives,they traveled to a farm where Don worked as a caretaker. Everything around was virgin territory and we had to begin working the land. Don grew up very poor, having lost his father when a small child. Having to help his mother, Don left school after the third grade. Something quite similar happened to Ruth, who only attended school up to second grade. Nauyaca Waterfalls is a totally Costa Rican owned family tourism company, dedicated for several years to tour operations. They offer horseback riding tours, traveling through the farm that border with two impressive waterfalls from Río Barucito.
These majestic waterfalls are one of the main attractions of the southern Pacific region of Costa Rica. Known for their natural scenic beauty, they offer visitors recreation and fun. You can participate in different activities such as horseback riding tours, swimming, climbing, jumping surrounded by tropical rainforest.
