  • About the tour

    Iguana Tours presents a 3 in 1 adventure on demand. We will travel along the Costanera Highway, known as Pacifica Fernandez, which runs along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica to the south. We will visit impressive waterfalls in Portalón de Quepos, the OSA canton, Dominicalito de Quepos and Uvita. We will enjoy the beautiful natural pools and their massages. At Portalón, the gateway to an ecotourism community, we greet the locals and continue to Poza Azul in Dominicalito. Fifteen minutes from here, we arrive at the Uvita Waterfall, where you can experience pure adrenaline or simply take pictures and videos.

    After visiting these three waterfalls, there is the option to, in 20 minutes more, explore El Pavón Waterfall, famous for its formation and the opportunity to jump from 15 meters into its natural pool, or visit the incredible natural formation of Ventanas beach. The excursion includes a delicious lunch, snacks, certified guides and safety equipment throughout the trip. Embark on an exciting waterfall tour, Costa Rican style.
