Las Gemelas Waterfalls Hike

Since the surrounding cloud forests is constantly covered in clouds, rushing water is not hard to find. For this tour we invite you to enjoy our stunning private trails! Your Eco-Concierge will guide you along paths that trace a pristine creek to find soothing waterfalls. Along the way, you’ll learn fascinating secrets of the rare and vulnerable cloud forest ecosystem. A challenging and well worth hiking session to reach a pair of Costa Rica’s most stunning azure waterfalls. The vibrant glowing blue color is caused by reflections of the volcanic mineral content of the water, creating a sight to behold and photograph!

Oxcart painting class

Painting Traditions

Ronald Jiménez

“Costa Rica’s traditional oxcarts are recognized by UNESCO as a precious cultural patrimony of humanity. Graced by intricate designs of kaleidoscopic beauty, they are the most iconic graphic elements of our heritage. I am proud that the roots of this art form can be traced to my hometown, the community of Sarchí (30 minutes away from El Silencio). I learned the technique from my grandparents and I am honored to share this emblematic art form with our guests. Teaching how to paint a memento of an oxcart wheel fills me with pride.”
