The Magical Diamante Waterfall Hike

by JodyCalvi May 26, 2012 | 7:59AM
The hike to the Diamante Sanctuary, Caves, Waterfalls and Medicinal Gardens is like being in Avatar - a spectacular hike through majestic primary forest of Costa Rica to Medicinal Gardens, The Shaman Caves, Waterfalls and Swimming Holes. The hike is tough - many stairs to climb on well-maintained trails - but the reward is well worth it! Farm of Life brings many retreats and guests on this hike with Tree of Life tours. The beauty, the opportunity to reconnect with nature and release fear and limitations makes this hike a transformative experience for most.
