The water was a perfect temperature and in the most breathtaking setting! Highly recommend visiting if in the area!! I normally don’t get in the water when on excursions like this, and this time I went in without hesitation!

I didn't mind paying to go the waterfall because it meant my car was secure. The waterfall is very nice. The trail down is pretty well kept. Definitely recommend.

We went for a quick tour and checked out the falls and pools.. It's a $1.00 to get in, the staff is friendly and there's a bar on site. Go take the plunge! It's a good time.. Very close to Rancho Pacifico, Kura and Oxygen..

This waterfall is right on the way to the house we were renting. On our last day, we finally got around to going to it. It costs about $1 each, but that was more than worth it. It's a short walk down the trail (which might be somewhat difficult for old, very young, or disabled people). The falls were beautiful,... More

We went to this waterfall on a couple of occasions during our stay in Uvita. It was only $1pp to enter and was a quite hidden away. It was safe to swim in and although we didn't swim directly where the waterfall descends, we swam in the next pool down the river. We only saw two other people there when... More

The Uvita waterfall is very pretty.There was many people the first time we went on the weekend. We went back on a week day and we were the only one there. There's a few slippery stairs to go down to the waterfall but fairly easy to manage. While going to jump from a rock on the more quiet part of... More

A short drive from the the main road. Parking available there. Then a short walk down to the water. A large rock-water slide in the falls that the younger people enjoyed. Several nice pools for swimming...nice, cool, enjoyable.
