If you didn’t already know, sliding off waterfalls is a thing now in the Costa Rican jungle.

Yes, that’s right, waterfall jumping is the new huge travel trend in Costa Rica. Paddle 9 tours now lets travellers go on an epic 45-minute hike through some of the nation’s most spectacular waterfall spots. Jump, swim, dive, climb, explore and even slide off the rocky streamers before leaping head-first into the huge pool at the bottom of these natural wonders—one of the falls is 190ft high, so you may want to skip the jumping part if you suffer from vertigo.

Don’t worry though, if you’re a bit of an adrenaline junkie the guides will show you how to master everything before you take the plunge. Instagrammers have no need to fear either. Before you get all wet, you’ll be able to take a load of amazing pictures, chill with your friends and do a bit of mountain climbing. The hike is a bit of a challenge, but YOLO, right?
