The front desk staff at the Hard Rock Resort & Casino in Jaco Beach, Costa Rica had a variety of tour options available for hotel guests.

They included an ATV tour, hiking tours, surf lessons, dirt bike tours, nature walks, a jungle adventure, a rainforest canopy tour and the Crocodile Man tour.

We chose the "Waterfalls Canopy Tour" which is offered every day at 8 AM, 11 AM and 2 PM. The cost was $58 per person which included the tour guides, bottled water, fresh tropical fruit, helmets, harnesses, and insect repellant.

The taxi dropped us off at the Waterfalls Canopy Tour company's small office, we paid with a credit card and were taken to the equipment area.

As the tour guides helped us put on our harnesses, they recited a short speech on the safety guidelines.

Then we were led on a "Nature Walk" through the rainforest past a few small picturesque waterfalls and streams. After crossing a rope bridge and climbing up a long wooden staircase we arrived at the first platform.

The Waterfalls Canopy Tour consists of 13 platforms, 7 zip line cables of different sizes, a 3 story tree house, a suspension bridge, a Tarzan swing, and a 90 foot rappel down at the end of the approximately two hour tour.

The Waterfalls Canopy Tour company has been seen on the E channel's Celebrity Adventures show, MTV's The Real World, NBC's The Today Show, and the Discovery Channel's Romantic Adventures show. This is the only tour company that has been inspected and approved by the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT).

After the exciting canopy tour concluded, the guides led us to a table covered in plates of tropical fruit and bottled waters. It was a refreshing way to end an excitement filled afternoon. We both really enjoyed the Waterfalls Canopy Tour and highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Jaco Beach area of Costa Rica.

Neo Fauna
While waiting for a taxi arrive to bring us back to the hotel, we walked into the gift shop of the Neo Fauna attraction located just before the Waterfalls Canopy Tour company's office. Neo Fauna features a butterfly farm, serpentarium (snake farm), and a tropical frog garden.

We also experienced the Tarcoles River Crocodile Feeding, Manuel Antonio National Park, the Fincas Naturales Wildlife Refuge, Hotel "Si Como No", The Backyard Bar on Playa Hermosa, a Playa De Jaco Sunset, and the Jaco Beach to San Jose Bus Ride that winded through the tropical countryside.
