Beautiful! For me, the perfect mix of relaxation and adventure. This is QUITE a climb/hike - lots of walking across rocks in the stream, holding yourself up with ropes, and climbing up tree roots. Be prepared and wear good shoes, preferably closed-toed! My Keens were perfect. There are pools at the bottoms of the waterfalls to swim in and you... More

We loved this experience. We were able to hike to all three waterfalls and spend time at each. We spent most of the day here. We were travelleing with two kids and they loved jumping in to the first waterfall. We did pay up front so were able to access the three waterfalls using our wristband. I would recommend this.

Quite a bit of debate on here about whether this is an easy hike or not. To put into perspective I am a 24 year old distance runner, who considers myself above average fitness. The hike may vary according to seasons. We went end of August. It requires you to wade through the river, the isn't a clearly marked trail,... More

This is for the adventurous. You can get to the bottom of the falls without any dangerous climbing. However, if you want to go to the top of the water falls, you will have to climb some cliffs using hands, legs and tree roots to hold on to. This is risky if you are not in good shape and you...

We enjoyed the intense hike up to the falls, and it's beautiful once you get there. Since we went during a time when they are having a drought, I think the fall wasn't as active as it could be, but overall, it was still beautiful to see. I would go again for sure! We didn't swim, but there were others... More

It is a bit of a hike up to the pools but well worth the effort. Make sure you jump instead of dive into the pools to be safe.

I visited with Sun Trails Canopy Tour. Definitely a must see! The waterfall is about 20 feet deep with no rocks so you can jump off. If you're not a swimmer or would like to bring your kids a long there's an area that is not deep at all. You feel like youre in the middle of a Tarzan episode... More

If you go this this amazing fall..on your way back keep looking to your right and you may spot some stairs...pretty steep, but they take you to a gate where you can pay about 1 colone to go through. This will get you to the other two falls that you hear about. Also, you will get here if you do... More

Loved this spot, a beautiful get away from the rocky beach, get ready for a hike! I would highly recommend wearing water shoes (chacos, ect.). Once you get to the falls totally worth the view!

It's an easy hike athletically speaking, but a hard one technically! Worth it though! Awesome to swim at the foot of the waterfall even if the water was brown. Did sprain my ankle on the way down unfortunately, but was still worth it. Even with two youngish kids too.
