When we first arrived at Catarata del Toro, I thought the place was closed. The buildings are very run down and only one staff member was working. It seemed a bit expensive but we paid anyway since we had made the long drive just to see this incredible waterfall. We made our way down the steep hill side and were... More

This is one of the best and most exciting places to see Hummingbirds. We saw 11 species in one afternoon. If you enjoy photographing birds, this place will drive you crazy with all the fun! The service is good, the coffee great, lots of other birds too, and a lovely waterfall you can hike to if you are in good... More

This was an excellent way to spend a couple of hours. The views from the top, middle and bottom of the (inactive) volcanic crater are amazing. Be aware that there are several hundred steps you'll need to climb up and down - and these aren't you're average steps. Even if you're in good shape, you'll be huffing and puffing, but... More

This is a really beautiful spot, don't miss it. If you like, follow the trail to the bottom, but its over 300 steps, be prepared for a vigorous hike back up to the top!

Truly one of the highlights of our latest trip to Costa Rica. We found this place last year Feb 2013). The owner, Will, was a delight. We learned that he offered rappelling down the side of the waterfall, but because his helper was not there that day we couldn't do it. We vowed to return and do the rappel. Fast... More

My wife and I wanted something off the beaten path on our last trip to Costa Rica and we found this on line. The drive by itself was worth the trip - beautiful scenery passing amazing farmland with spectacular mountain views. All the things we had read talked about the bad road conditions but I must say, the road from... More

Without a doubt the most breathtaking waterfall I have visited. Living in Costa Rica, I've visited a number of waterfalls and all are beautiful but this surpasses them all. The hike down was shorter than I expected but very steep. A great deal of the 'trail' is a concrete staircase. If you are driving to this place, be aware that... More

This is the most amazing waterfall I've ever seen in my life. The trail leading to the bottom is steep and long, especially when hiking out but worth every bit! The views are amazing all along the trail. There is an abundance of flowers and plants as you walk the trail through the jungle. We were fortunate enough to have... More

Catarata Del Toro is a breathtaking place. We visited Costa Rica from 1 Dec-30 Dec 2012, just after the rain season and it was absolutely gorgeous! One of the most beautiful countries we have ever visited.The hotel had recommended to us to definitely pay this site a visit, known as the 'Secret of Costa Rica'. The road to this site... More

I visited one day while staying in Zarcero. The drive was maybe 25km and with the narrow winding roads and section of gravel road it was a 45-60 minute trip for me. I was glad to have a rental car as this place is sparsely serviced by bus and/or taxi. I think there may be a few tour companies who... More
