How long to stay in Jardín
I like Jardín. In addition to the famous Esplandor waterfall, there are many tours to organize with our local partner.
Choose between their many cultural activities (coffee plantation, beekeeping), observe colorful birds, rappel down waterfalls or organize 1 or multi-day hikes.
I recommend a minimum of 3 days to enjoy Jardín. If you like to book activities to discover new places, then 5 days will be an ideal length!
