Gualaca RIVER CANYON
Nature has created the perfect playground for everyone. Brave the meter high cliffs and jump in for an amazing adrenaline rush; or if you are more the quiet sun worshiper, turn off your mind, relax and float downstream.
The river canyon catches all the local sun and is the perfect place to pack a little picnic lunch, maybe a beer or two and spend a day.
Take the local bus or ask us about organized transportation!
Located at the end of a high, narrow canyon, the 30m Celestine Waterfall is one of the hidden jewels of the Palo Seco National Park. Grab a free map and head out on local transportation.
Climb through the boulder strewn creek bed, swim through rugged sections to reach The Chamber, a natural room of thundering water and forbidding stone with walls so high that the sun's beams can only penetrate at midday.
Only a few minutes from the road, the Celestine Waterfall is still so well hidden that only those who know exactly where to look for the secret entrance can ever behold it. We have the map!
Join us for a yoga class in the clouds! No special requirements, skills, or flexibility are needed for our community classes, therefore our classes are open to travelers of all levels.
We offer morning or afternoon classes, completely immersed in nature. The mountain's natural elements create a calming and grounding environment for fellow travelers to connect with their breath, their body, and the beautiful environment that surrounds them. Our classes are typically a hatha-vinyasa styled flow, and by spending at least 60 minutes on your yoga mat you will create an opportunity to give yourself your undivided attention; taking a few moments to step back from your travel plans, to fully reconnect with yourself and find your inner peace. Namaste.
Classes are open seasonally, depending on the availability of our teachers.
THE JUNGLE IS CALLING
Located within the La Fortuna Nature Reserve, we offer access to over 10 kilometers of hiking trails. You can spend hours, or days, exploring the almost magical diversity of the forest. Enjoy a wide range of flora, including bromeliads and orchids. Happen upon a family of monkeys or let your mind wander when listening to the lyrical songs of the many birds. Search for clues hidden in the forest on our Indiana Jones Treasure Hunt, or simply take haven at the river and refresh yourself in it’s cooling waters.
