Easy hike in even for the novice hiker, provided you have good shoes on. We didn't plan on doing the hike that day and walkedminnlike idiots in flip-flops. Did the hike but would have been a lot safer / fun in closed toe shoes! The falls are breath taking, swimming in the lower pools with the tall cascade behind was... More

This is a long trek down to the falls but once you get there it is well worth the visit. The falls are beautiful and the people watching is awesome!

Nice 30-45 min hike, bit challenging over wet rocks, but it's an adventure. 3 waterfalls - most people stop at no.1 and swim, relax. Worth the hike but not appropriate for children. I saw a newborn being carried - brave/stupid! 45 mins from Tambor beach, 1 hour from Paquera ferry port. Cheap parking: $2 all day with someone supervising. TAKE... More

The walk to the base of the waterfall is a bit bumpy, but that is only the boring part. There are two ways to reach the higher lying plateaus above the waterfall including natural pools and a smaller waterfall. There is a steep path with steps on the left side (facing the waterfall), a bit laid back. At the top... More

A pretty good hike through the waterfalls and treetops to see the best view of the Montezuma, Saint Teresa area. Definitely want to make sure to wear the appropriate gear since climbing relatively steep cliffs is required in order to get to the third waterfall. Atop the third fall, there are some great adventurous "toys" (rope swing and natural jumping... More

This is just a short hike from main street in Montezuma. There are a series of pools that go into one another. There is a rope to swing into the water and also for the adventurous, you can jump off the top fall into the lower pool. Beautiful. Busy but not annoying.

Beautiful hike walking thru the water on rocks and up muddy hills some with stairs most without. Very exhausting. Glad I did it but doubt that I would do again

This place is just amazing. The water is so clear & you can also jump from the rocks. To go there, you can pass by the road that go up in the mountain (nice view & A LOT of owler monkeys) and pass by the ziplining station but there gonna charge you 4$ per person just to use their trail.... More
