Tree of Life
The Tree of Life tour is located in the southern zone of Costa Rica between Dominical and San Isidro del General. The property is comprised of hundreds of acres of primary rainforest and cloud forest that stretch from the Pacific Ocean to the summit of the Tinamaste Mountains at 3,300 feet in elevation. This mountain range is a vital watershed to the Baru River, which originates in the mountains with a number of spectacular waterfalls, including the magnificent Diamante Falls, which are 600 feet tall.

The hike up to the camp area is quite strenuous, but stops are made along the way to learn about medicinal plants and the land. After a couple hours of hiking, the jungle opens to an amazingly beautiful double waterfall that is approximately 150 feet high. As you walk in, you will notice a cave tucked in behind the waterfalls with a stone walkway leading to the entrance.
The Tree of Life tour company has furnished the cave with everything needed for survival including a fully functioning kitchen, bathrooms, showers and rough bedding. A night in this cave is a moment in time that will never be forgotten!
To fill the time, one can hike to the various waterfalls, explore the jungle or even rappel down the falls. There is a waterfall and pool area within an hour hike that is great for cliff jumping or just swimming in cool, fresh water surrounded by cloud forest.
