Not worth the money unless you have NEVER seen a waterfall
Jul 2021
Eh, it's a waterfall, and it's not at all worth the price of admission. On the day we went, there had been heavy rainfall overnight, so it was too dangerous to actually swim beneath the waterfall itself (which is the highlight of the trip).

Instead, we swam in the river immediately downstream, and it was nice and chilly. Clean water, and plenty of fun, but still not all worth the price of admission. I don't know why public and private parks in Costa Rica as so incredibly expensive. It cost about $18 per person.

You'll need to be in reasonably good shape to get to the falls and back. There are about 600 steps each way, but the steps are solid and well-designed.

Overall though, I'd say skip this one if you've seen waterfalls before. I could see it as a great swimming hole for locals if they get a steep discount. But it's tourist trap for the rest of us.

Beautiful Waterfall
This was one of a few waterfalls we went to on our trip to CR. This is a very nice waterfall, however, while the waterfall is beautiful, it’s very crowded. There are lots of people so it makes it difficult to move around and get to the water. The rocks getting to the waterfall are very slippery & getting down to the waterfall you walk down lots of stairs, so make sure to wear good shoes and be prepared for the long walk up!

Beautiful
This is an easy 500 steps down (not as easy coming up! Ha). This is not handicap accessible. The base of the waterfall has two entry points…you can climb over very slick rocks to enter the main waterfall pool or you can enter a side pool that is perfect for younger kids and adults who want a calmer experience. The waterfall(s) are beautiful…worth visiting.

Beautiful waterfall - worth the visit!
Great and beautiful waterfall. There is a stairway of about 500 meters. Going up is harder than going down. However, absolutely worth it. Majestic site. The water is a little cold but pleasant on a hot day to swim in, and very clean. Bring water-shoes - there are rocks at the entry so it gets slippery and hard on your feet. There is a shallow end with more kids. There are schools of fish on that end

I saw this waterfall and Rio Celeste and, not to downplaythe beauty if Rio Celeste, if you have to pick one or the other I would more recommend seeing La Fortuna waterfall. You can swim in the La Fortuna waterfall as well as in the river near it and it is truly breathtaking

Wow. What a current!
A beautiful hike down well made stairs leads to the base of this enormous falls. The pool opens up in a cavelike way with plant growth everywhere and water seeping through the mountainous overhangs. The falls are gorgeous and offer stunning photograph options. I was surprised how few people decided to swim. The water is comfortable and swimming toward the waterfall is such a unique experience. The current is so powerful! Our family are all experienced swimmers and could barely close half the distance to the waterfall. We weren’t intending to get all the way there to be safe but it was nearly impossible to move at all! It was such s rush of an experience. Be careful with the rocks though! They warned us they were slippery but they were the slipperiest rocks I’ve ever encountered so use caution! Totally worth it and highly recommend!

Beautiful waterfall!
This was a beautiful waterfall, not for the weak though, 500 stairs is no joke. We went further from the waterfall to get in the water because it was less rocky and had shallow waters for the little ones, that's where I took the picture of the fish.

Worth every bit of the $18.00 admission fee
A spectacular waterfall made especially worthy of the 500 steps down on a sunny morning. A refreshing swim to reenergize your 500 steps back up.

Worth the hike...but you better be in shape!
Mar 2021 • Family
Had this experience as part of our vacation package. We were warned of the hard hike. My wife and I are in decent shape although we don't hit the gym as often as we should. By the time we got to the bottom our legs were shaking. There were plenty of "break" spots on the stairs and fresh water at each location. At the bottom there was a large area to sit and enjoy a view of the jungle and a platform for taking pictures of the falls. The downside....no one told us to change at the top in the changing area so we got to the bottom in our hiking gear only to find no privacy to change. Thankfully we are not modest folks and just ducked behind a tree and changed in the woods. The water was refreshing after the hike and we spent a good hour swimming and exploring around the falls and river. They do have a "lifeguard" on duty but he was also there to keep tourists from going too far into the jungle. After swimming we started our hike back out....let me tell you, it was brutal! I think even a top shape person would be well winded by the time they reached the top. It took us about 45 minutes to get back to the top. Even our teenage son who is in great shape said it was rough. All in all, we are glad we did it but don't think we would go again but still worth the time & effort.

Great way to cool off at the end of the day
We visited the waterfall as our last stop of the day took about 20 min to get down and we spent about an hour bathing in the COLD waterfall and stream. I recommend water shoes. We bought a combo ticket with hanging bridges which saved us a few bucks. Be prepared for the hike back up 500 steps.
