La Fortuna Waterfall Hike

By Ecoterra Costa Rica
We will begin our descent on a downhill trail of approximately 500 m (1640 ft.) with more than 480 steps surrounded by the impressive rainforest until we reach the base of the fall. The waterfall is renowned for its 70 m (230 ft.) fall of crystal-clear water which originates in the Children’s Eternal Rainforest. With a little luck, we will spot animals like coatis, butterflies, toucans, orioles, among other species. Once at the base, you can take a swim in its refreshing waters, take pictures, or simply rest and admire the beauty of the La Fortuna Waterfall and the surrounding nature. When you visit the La Fortuna Waterfall, in addition to discovering an amazing natural wonder , you will help generate income for the Community Development Association to invest in social works to benefit schools, nutrition centers, the local orphanage, recycling center, roads, tourism safety, and more.

No pictures can do justice to this breathtaking waterfall. The height of the waterfall and the power of the water coming was magnificent. Taking a swim in the water is a must. We saw a group of monkeys during our hike down to the waterfall. The facility is well maintained and all personnel were friendly and professional. The lunch was also excellent. Some important advice on the hike to and from the waterfall. It’s very safe but can be very challenging for some. The 530+ steps back up is challenging for the older individual or a younger child. There are rest area with seats which is very thoughtful. Make sure you have a good walking/hiking shoes. And bring a bottle water to stay hydrated. The La Fortuna Waterfall is a must see.

Great trip to the La Fortuna park and waterfall. Nicely developed area with paved/hand-railed walking trail down to/up from the base of the waterfall. Waterfall is spectacular! Swimming is refreshing and fun. Showers/changing rooms at the top. Great time! Go!
