See the tallest waterfall in the country and views of the Pacific at Pura Vida Gardens and Waterfalls. The gardens teem with a variety of plant life, including thousands of flowers and many varieties of domestic and foreign orchids. Follow the easy, well-maintained paths, and spot butterflies, scarlet macaws, and toucans flying overhead. Dine at the on-site restaurant opposite the majestic 183 m (600 ft) waterfall, while overlooking panoramic views of the Pacific coastline and the surrounding mountains. Sunsets here are particularly spectacular. Plan to visit Pura Vida Gardens and Waterfalls during your Jaco vacation using our convenient Jaco itinerary maker.
