Stunning! A nice steep, little jaunt down (and back up) with views of the gushing waterfall along the way into the lush, green crater with a pool at the bottom. Take along one of their walking sticks.

First off the road trip to get here was an adventure in itself. There are sections in the gravel/dirt road that are too narrow for 2 way traffic. It took us over 1.5 hours to get to bajos del torro from alajuela thru grecia. The hike it self is hard on the legs. Steep cement steps lead to wet muddy... More

Been here twice now and it is wonderful. Half the fun is the drive to the location. Some of the most beautiful views in Costa Rica. Not the best if you afraid of heights. Although even if you are this is a must see. Food is pretty good at the location and the hike is challenging, but so worth it!... More

1.5 hours North of Atenas and well worth the drive. Like most day trips in Costa Rica during the rainy season, (June 1st is when we were here) leave early to get the best chance for clear views before the afternoon clouds roll in. The hike is moderate....too much for bad knees but just fine for most average fit lazy... More

My two photographer/Nature enthusiast friends and I spent about 4 hours here recently after a long drive from Alajuela via Zarcero with lots of photo stops along the way. The pros: clearly marked trails through the gardens, forests and to the waterfall; the views from anywhere are unique - a cross section through the volcanic mountains that are the backbone... More

Cultivated gardens buzzing with hummingbirds with paths that lead down to a view of the spectacular waterfall. A must see and do in Bajos del Toro

This hike is a must do! After some minutes you reach a totally different world - the hike is worth it! The waterfall is simply breathtaking. When we reached the waterfall we were alone, there were no groups of tourists there which was very beautiful. When you are there, you have to see the "garten- jardin" aswell! We had a... More

Following advice from a blog post, we went to Catarata Del Toro waterfall after visiting Volcan Poas. It was well worth the trip, with an exciting walk down, an incredibly beautiful waterfall (a great spot for a picnic) and an exhilarating walk back up :). A variety of walking sticks are provided and fun to use (as well as helpful!).... More

We arrived in the midst of a very wet afternoon during the rainy season, less than an hour before they closed for the night. There was so much mist and low-hanging cloud that we could only hear the roar of the waterfall until we reached the dirt steps at the base of the crater - however, this really leant to... More

I loved this trip. Only thing is that I am afraid of insects and those were def lurking. It was very pretty still. Great place to visit if you are ever in San Jose.
