What people are saying about Jaco

It was a great experience. The instructors were very helpful in riding a horse for the first time. The horses know the trail very well so if they do go ahead of the pack no need to worry. The waterfalls are quite gorgeous beautiful blue water coming down, great place for pictures. Go to the waterfall park your horse on a tree then enjoy the waterfall and get right back on your horse right back to the station by that time you’ll dry up and be warm.

Our guide was informative and told us all about the plants and animals. We walked through the butterfly pavilion, around the grounds, and rode up the gondola to the top. We were able to get out and walk a short distance to the beautiful overlook. It is well worth the visit!

Great experience with Fernando! Wonderful time swimming in the waterfall, hanging out in the hot springs while it poured and delicious food!

Super organizado e com todos os cuidados necessários. Longos trechos de tirolesa, total de 3,5 km. Adorei!

The horses, guides, scenery, waterfall and swimming were all top shelf. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
