Go for the waterfall. It is one of the best if not the highest accessable waterfall in Costa Rica. The small price of admission is worth just viewing it from the hilltop restaurant. But hiking the trails and climbing the stairs to the bottom is that best part. It is somewhat strenous so take you time and enjoy the solitude.... More

On our 5 day trip around Costa Rica, we visited 4 waterfalls: the much famed Rio Celeste, the popular La Fortuna waterfall, the little known Los Chorros in Grecia, and Catarata del Toro which was our favorite. I sprained my ankle carelessly going down the stairs because I was so excited to get to the bottom of this behemoth cascade,... More

It's so beautiful. My husband and I came here on our wat back to San Jose. It was a quick trip. Easy to find. It cost us $10pp. Going up and down is steep and is a challengd. But worth it!

We visited the waterfall and surrounding trails. The waterfall is very impressing and the canyon is beautiful. What we really liked is the fact that it is not too touristic and the couple that manage the place is very nice and helpful, they showed us the gardens and we had interesting talk

Worth the hike. Lots of steps but worth it for the views. The path is nice, the steps are steep, but it's beautiful at the bottom near the waterfall. It rained on us coming back up the trail but if it wasn't for the rain, there would be no waterfalls.

Billed as "the best secret in Costa Rica," this place lives up to the billing! A hike down a series of hundreds of steps to the base of a 300' waterfall in a gorgeous otherworldly basin. "Vale la pena," as the Ticos say...¡pero es pena! Relative physical fitness is a requirement for this outstanding nature experience, where you'll hike down... More

incredible waterfall and worth the hike down. if u are in decent shape and take ur time I would recommend giving it a try. it's a bit muddy and slippery in spots but the steps help a lot and u can just take ur time the whole way. plenty of spots for pictures or just take in the spectacular surroundings....

Nothing like hiking down into an extinct volcano crater and feeling the cool mist of the waterfall on your face! We also enjoyed the very active hummingbird garden!

I may be a bit short of detail, as it has been several months since we were in Costa Rica, but I believe this is one location that deserves my review. Short Version: This was one of the most awe inspiring things I've ever experienced, when we were at the base of these falls. Some might describe it as just... More
