“Really nice hike, nice falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

This is a neat place to visit. The walk if pretty reasonable, and one definitely should wear their suit. When we were there there was one section that was pretty to keep one's balance on. This was likely because a recent earthquake took out the regular bridge.

“La Fortuna Waterfall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Well worth the ten dollars they charge. If you walk past the river and continue on the trail you come across an unexpected and very cool hanging bridge.

“Beautiful Waterfall!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

This was an absolutely beautiful place! I would highly recommend spending a few hours there. Unfortunately, we did not have that much time. It is a bit of a hike up and down the staircase, but both my 6 year old and 9 year old did it without any difficulty.

Nice hike and a spectacular waterfall. Inexpensive - 10 dollars US. Few dollars cab from downtown La Fortuna.
