“Short Hike with a Nice Reward”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

We were staying at a home up the road from the waterfall, so we drove by several times before stopping. As noted by other reviewers, the hike is short, but steep in places. The waterfall is very beautiful and in an idyllic setting. We went around 10:00 in the morning, and only saw three other visitors.The pools of crystal clear water are very refreshing . When we were there it was raining every afternoon, so the water was flowing at a nice rate. Didn't have a chance to try the restaurant / bar but heard good things. If you're in the Uvita area I can't think of a single reason to miss this natural beauty.

“Excellent waterhole”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

The waterfall is small, but you can ramble up past the waterfall for some time meandering with the river. It was a great way to cool off and enjoy the sound of water fall.

“Beautiful waterfall experience~”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

This waterfall is beautiful and the grounds are awesome. And the admission is very cheap - only $1 a person and worth every penny!

“Very relaxed hangout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

I enjoyed the jungle and falls. Varied crowd . Great soda at the top. Friendly people . Try a sapo de agua at the soda.
I walked to and from my casa so its easy to get to. Water shoes would be helpful on the slippery Rocks. I have a bad knee and fainted well
SoI recommend this for everyone.

“Beautiful waterfall with swimming in pools beneath falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Set in middle of the jungle but with the sun able to cut through the canopy. Park in small restaurant and a very short walk to the falls. Entrance fee only about 500c per person. Water is warm and pure. A must see attraction if you are in the area.
