Tour operator’s description: Our Tour of the Seven Pueblos is our half-day tour and covers nearly 100 kilometers of waterfalls, rivers, rainforest, countryside, small villages, hidden bars and restaurants. Starting up the same trail as our tour of Bijagual, The half-day tour is a full-circuit covering the mountain ranges of La Gloria and winding south past Hermosa. Like The Tour of Bijagual, the tour begins in the mountains directly behind Jaco, and continues roughly half the distance to the peak of the mountain. We leave the ATV’s and take a short walk to a beautiful 35ft. waterfall – a perfect spot to get a little wet and take some pictures. After the brief stop, we continue up through primary rainforest and above the canopy to the top of the mountain range. Just beyond the crest of the mountain lies a beautiful mirador offering views of the ocean playing against sands as far south as Manuel Antonio, as far west as the Nicoya Peninsula, and as far north as the port cit of Puntarenas. We continue along the top of the mountain and through the rainforest towards the tranquil Pueblo of Bijagual for a drink. After our refreshments, we take one of two possible trails to the next little pueblo of Las Delicias (population: 39). From here we continue on through the similarly small and remote villages of San Gabriel, Pavona, Angostura, and Montelimar. Though it’s impossible to describe every little pueblo we pass on the tour, suffice it to say that each has its own unique charm, and the locals always greet us with a wave and a smile. After five more pueblos and making the majority of the circuit, we arrive at the Tulin River – an opportunity to rinse off a little bit before making the next 15 kilometers to a hidden little restaurant that sits alongside the Tulin River in the pueblo of Mata De Platano. The restaurant in Mata De Platano provides a mellow environment for lunch an opportunity to relax a bit before taking a leisurely trip back to Jaco.
