People Also Ask
Q:Is Rainmaker Park worth visiting?
A:Yes, Rainmaker Park (officially Rainmaker Conservation Park) offers a unique opportunity to fully immerse yourself in Costa Rica’s virgin rainforest, far from the crowds of more famous natural parks and reserves. There are hiking and river trails plus canopy bridge walks to take in the central Pacific scenery and spot native wildlife.
Q:How do I get to Rainmaker Park?
A:No public bus or train runs to Rainmaker Park, so you must reach the reserve with a rental car, driver, or a tour that includes transportation. The park is set a few minutes off Highway 34, about a 30-minute drive from the city of Quepos on Coast Rica’s Pacific coast.
Q:What should I wear to Rainmaker Park?
A:The only way to explore the park is on foot, so avoid flip-flops and shoes with smooth soles and instead wear sturdy walking or hiking shoes that can take on the slippery trails and canopy walkways. Bring a swimsuit and towel if you plan to dip in the streams.
Q:How many miles is Rainmaker Park?
A:Rainmaker Park has a 1.5-mile (2.5-km) trail system through the rainforest that skirts a natural river, passing several waterfalls and swimming holes. The main trail is generally level and suitable for most visitors; steeper side trails loop off the main trail, leading to lookout points and suspension bridges.
Q:Are there hanging bridges at Rainmaker Park?
A:Yes, the park’s trail system includes a canopy bridge system with six small suspension bridges stretching about 800 feet (250 meters) high in the treetops. The bridges span between platforms built around hardwood trees, offering views of the forest from above that stretch to the Pacific Ocean.
Q:Is Rainmaker Park or Manuel Antonio National Park better?
A:It depends on the experience you are looking for. Rainmaker Park is a compact reserve that is remarkably pristine, filled with wildlife, and with few tourists. Manuel Antonio National Park is much larger, with more trails to explore and many more visitors that crowd the park in high season.
