Nauyaca Waterfalls, Dominical
A horseback riding tour to the stunning waterfalls of Nauyaca
Nauyaca Waterfalls Horseback Riding Tour
Tucked away in the dense jungle of Dominical are the impressive waterfalls of Nauyaca located. The canyon is surrounded by gorgeous tropical rainforest and creates several waterfalls with the water from the river Barucito. The highest waterfall is 45 meters (148 ft) and the big natural swimming pool is 6 meters (20 ft) deep, covering 1,000 m2 (10,800 ft2). It will be one of the most awesome places you will ever swim! It is possible to jump from the waterfall into the natural swimming pool (several heights), but you can also just relax in one of the smaller natural swimming pools and enjoy this stunning environment.
This horseback riding tour starts at 8:00 in the morning at the office of the tour operator; just a 10 minute drive from Hotel Villas Rio Mar (we will provide you directions). Transport is not included, but our tour desk will be more than happy to arrange it for you.
