“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I was told this is the second highest waterfall in Costa Rica. A fairly easy hike but kids need guidance. some areas could be dangerous for kids. The family that owns the land has done a lot of work to maintain and keep it safe. The admission fee is well deserved. If you find my sunglasses take to the woman at the start lol.

“Wonderful!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

A fantastic walk (45minutes) in the forest leads to a very big waterfall, very cold but seriously breath taking ! We enjoyed walking in this place, this is very beautiful!

“The closest thing to paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The hike to the waterfall was spectacular and very comfortable. I have many great photos to help remember this enchanting place, along with a great video of my daughter swimming and squealing with glee in the pond at the waterfall.

“Worth the Hike, but you'd better be fit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Super hike up the mountain, crossing a stream back and forth on boards (there is a rope head height to steady yourself with) until you reach the pool at the base of a 200 foot double-drop waterfall. If the day is warm, the cold water is most refreshing, but if you go on a cool day, you will need to be brave to enter the water!

“stunning! Just do it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

The hike to get there is like an indian jones adventure...lots of river crossing on logs. Highly worth it! My daughter swam under the waterfall.
