Rainmaker Park Tours

Rainmaker Park
Brimming with lush forest, wildlife, and waterfalls, Rainmaker Park provides a quieter alternative to the often-crowded Manuel Antonio National Park. As well as being home to animals such as dart frogs, snakes, and butterflies, the off-the-beaten-path attraction offers great forest views from a set of swinging bridges.

The Basics
You can explore Rainmaker Park on a self-guided walking tour or book a guided tour to learn more about native flora and fauna along the way. Day tours typically include traversing the tree-top canopy via swinging bridges and swimming at the base of waterfalls. Adventurous visitors can visit as part of a night tour, which increases your chance of observing nocturnal wildlife such as bats, owls, and frogs.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Rainmaker Park is a must-see for nature lovers and outdoor adventure enthusiasts.
  • Reserve your tickets in advance or arrive early before the park reaches its daily visitor quota.
  • Don’t worry about taking your own food; an onsite restaurant offers convenient and affordable meals.
  • Trail maps are available at reception and are posted throughout the park, making it easy to explore on your own.

How to Get There

Set in the rainforest 14 miles (22 kilometers) outside of Quepos, Rainmaker Park is located off Route 34 (the Costanera) in the small town of San Rafael Norte. Rainmaker signs along the route make the park reasonably easy to find. However, if you don’t have a car or would rather avoid navigating on your own, opt for a tour that includes hassle-free hotel pickup and drop-off.

When to Get There
The park is open for self-guided tours from 7am-6pm, but to see the wildlife at its most active, book a tour that extends your time in the park past opening and closing time. Birdwatching tours begin at 5:30am, while a reptile and amphibian-focused night tour begins at 7pm.

Hiking in Rainmaker Park
The park’s 1.5-mile (2.5-kilometer) loop trail is a moderate hike that takes you through old-growth rainforest, past waterfalls and along a picturesque river. Several shorter loops branch off the main trail and lead to scenic viewpoints and suspension bridges that provide an aerial view of the surrounding rainforest. Hiking routes are suitable for most fitness levels but some include steep and slippery sections.
