Hi Sheila, The Nauyaca are fairly close to Ojochal so if you want to spend most of the day on your way there in Manuel Antonio, just visit the Nauyaca from Ojochal. It’s about a 35 min. drive and that way you won’t be rushed. The hike is a little over an hour in each direction and you’ll want to spend some time at the waterfall. If you need directions and other info about the hike, check out our post Visiting the Beautiful Nauyaca Waterfalls.
