Don't miss out on this waterfall. The entire place is magical, from the waterfall to the restaurant to the hummingbirds. Absolutely gorgeous. This place was my favorite in all of Costa Rica. I only wish that I had treated this as an all-day destination, or...More

Fantastic Waterfall! The hike is steep but completely worth it. We also saw tons of hummingbirds here so have your camera ready! We think it’s the best thing we’ve seen in CR during our 3 months in the country.
