Nauyaca Waterfalls is a totally Costa Rican owned family tourism company, dedicated for several years to tour operations. These are 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 region in Costa Rica, not only for their natural scenic beauty, which offers the tourist moments of recreation and fun, but also to participate in different activities such as horseback ridign tours, swimming, climbing, jumping and to observe much of the beauty of the tropical rainforest, among others.
Nauyaca Waterfalls is the ideal place, not only for those in search of tranquility and nature, but also for adventure and excitement lovers.
The horseback riding tour is over a 12 kilometer route with three resting periods, departing from our office, passing by Don Lulo’s house, where you will have a delicious and typical Costa Rican breakfast.
The horseback riding tour takes approximately from 45 minutes to one hour up to “Don Lulo’s house”. After breakfast and observing animals in the family’s mini-zoo, the ride continues on for 25 minutes until arriving at the waterfalls. You may swim in the natural pools the waterfalls have formed.
On the way back we stop once again at “Don Lulo’s house” to enjoy a delicious and also typical Costa Rican lunch. After a well-earned rest on the hammocks and a delicious cup of coffee, we begin the return trip to our starting point.
The horseback ride in Costa Rica offered by Nauyaca Waterfalls is one of the best experiences that a tourist can find and enjoy in our country.

Nauyaca Waterfalls Reviews
We loved this beautiful place! We drove out rented car and parked. Then hiked the 2 miles to the falls. It was very hot at 11:00am but the sauna walk was worth it when we got to the waterfalls. Both 1... more »
There are two beautiful waterfalls to view, a great swimming hole and lots of wildlife if you hit the trail early. We arrived when it opened and walked the trail. We saw birds, monkies, lizzards, frog... more »
We did the horse back riding tour to the Nauyaca Waterfalls. That was a great experience and the falls were very beautiful. The group spent over an hour at the falls cooling off and jumping in the water. The horses stopped about halfway to the falls and the group was served a lite breakfast - fruit, cake, fried potatoes and juice/coffee. On the way back it was lunch. This was very good. It was a full meal. The guides were very knowledgeable. The horses were very tame and friendly. They pretty much went the way on autopilot. Most of the group had minimal riding experience and it was a easy job keeping the horses on track. If you are in the area this is a spot to see. They offer other options as well - walking, truck ride or horseback riding.
This is a good half day trip and a good workout if you want to hump a 30lb backup up to Nauyaca Waterfalls. The trail is well traveled and you can set whatever pace you want. Regardless of how fast you make to the Waterfalls - it offers the ultimate payoff for a good hike - a dive into the cool waters in the upper pool is super refreshing. Bring lots of sunscreen and water, cameras (submersible and regular) and be prepared to sit back and enjoy a remarkable experience! For those not inclined to hike it, you can get a ride (back of a flatbed truck with seats) to the top or opt for riding up on horseback - which looked pretty cool. Great day, regardless of how you traverse the trail!
