What can I say, this was an amazing hiking experience near San Jose. Transportation was arranged, all meals were provided, couldn't be any easier.

If you're looking for a real hiking experience versus a bus walking tour, doticotours is the perfect choice for you.
Calling Hiking and Waterfalls Enthusiasts

Eric (owner) and Natalia provided an excellent hiking trip that the locals typically take. The volcano and mountainous sights during the reasonable drive from San Jose to Bajos del Toro were unique to other tours we took...must take photos and an incredible day altogether.

Highly recommend you hikers and waterfall lovers make this trip a "Must Do" on your trip to Costa Rica. The breakfast and lunch were also delicious and fresh at a local restaurant.

Went on this tour with Eric in October 2021 with a buddy of mine. The views, waterfalls, and water were incredible. The hike was very challenging and we were really tired after, but we sort of had a glow about us the whole time. Eric is very personable and easy to talk to. He provides great information about this gem of a place.
Book the TOUR!!! Highly Recommenced

This was the best tour ever. The tour guide was very encouraging and considerate.
The tour was an amazing experience of 4 gorgeous waterfalls. The terrain was challenging at times but the tour guide would stop and slow down as I needed. This tour is for real adventurists and the challenge is more than worth it.

I also was able to book a solo tour on the company website.
Absolutely Amazing Hiking!

Absolutely amazing hiking! We were promptly picked up from our hotel at 6 am. We had a nice Costa Rican breakfast on our way to the trailhead. We arrived at the trailhead after about 2 hours. The hiking was through muddy fields and crossing many streams. We went to the Roca Verde first and then to Catarata Germelas and Catarata Celestial. There were over 500 steps on the way to Catarata Germelas and Celestial. Also, the last section of the Celestial must be descended using a rope to get to the bottom of the waterfall. We had lunch at the Catarata Celestial before returning to the car. The hiking was about 6.3 miles with 1220 feet elevation gain.

All 3 waterfalls were absolutely beautiful.
