I have been guiding in Costa Rica for 10 years. I just learned about this place after 20 years residing in the country. Wonderful experience. Sure, I went on a weekday in COVID times and avoided the weekend crowd, which I recommend to do if you are seeking peace in nature. The family, who takes care of the parking and the paths is very friendly and grateful for the visit. Recommended place, hidden gem!

Great place to get away from the heat. Beautiful falls are about 1 km down a fairly steep, but maintained trail from parking. Trail though jungle and bamboo stands.

We recently visited and initially were dismayed by big signs at the entry point saying they were closed and it was dangerous to press ahead. Nether the less we pressed on and found a local landowner has opened a new path to compensate for the other route which was damaged during Hurricane Nate. It was a moderate hike in and out and the reward at the falls was worth every step. I would say that anyone is reasonable shape should be able to do it, even accounting for slippery rocks at the bottom for the last 100 yards to the falls.

On the tail end of our week long sojourn through Costa Rica, we were heading back to San Jose and looking for stops on the way. Our guide book mentioned this stop, so we punched it in Waze and we were off. Arriving at the destination, we were questioning whether we had the right place (only a small house with a chain across the driveway) when a gentleman came out of the house and opened the chain. He spoke little english, but my spanish was good enough to figure out we were in the right place. No entry fee, but a donation is always appreciated. We followed him and his dogs to a hole in the tree line. "Follow the path down to the falls, the dogs will go with you." The dogs will go with us? Sure enough, the big lab (Kawi) led the way down and back. It started raining on our descent and the trail got sketchier, to the point where my wife (with her blown knee from a previous accident in the Azores) said "I'm done." I continued down the path (my wife wouldn't have made it), following Kawi, to the bottom where there were indeed impressive waterfalls. This is one of those areas that OSHA would hate because there is very little safety stuff in place. There was no one else around and, should I have slipped and cracked my skull, there would be no help whatsoever. Luckily, I'm not an idiot, and I was able to grab a few pics in the rain, and start my way back....with Kawi leading the way. We made it back to the house with no issues. We did see a review where a couple young women were robbed...and I could see that happening. I would not go down there alone...only as a group. Need to be in reasonable shape to get down and back. If you're the only one there feel free to shuck your clothes and hop in. The rocks are slippery so be careful. Recommended.

Easy hike to the falls. We waded all the way to the first fall and were able to stand in the pool at the bottom of the falls. Absolutely stunning. We had the place to ourself. It cost 3000 colones ($6) to park the car. The owner kept An eye on our car and belongings. This side excursion was definitely worth the trip.

Took an Uber and spent a lovely day playing in the water; absolutely magical. Easy hike down and back out with 2 kiddos ages 8 & 9; take your time and enjoy! Luis was helpful and very kind; please help by picking up any trash you might find.

This was easily one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. A gorgeous hike, and incredible waterfalls. I was there with two of my friends, and we were amazed by the natural beauty. Unfortunately we had the terrible experience of being robbed by two men on our hike back up to the parkinglot from the waterfalls. They took all of our belongings that we had on us. Very scary. I recently read a review of this place from another person who encountered a couple that had been robbed here as well, shortly after my friends and I the same experience. Overall, the place was gorgeous, but for safety, go in larger groups and always be cautious.

The waterfalls are beautiful and it’s fun to wade through the water and explore around them. It’s definitely a local spot with lots of families cooking on fires everywhere. Getting here was kind of sketchy and we got lost a few times. The road goes through a few areas that don’t seem very safe and we almost turned around. There is a bumpy dirt road leading to the parking lot. It said it was closed but once we got up there they said they were open and we paid for parking. Didn’t feel the safest though but they seemed nice. The trail was kind of confusing- just follow the big path to the right and you’ll be fine. There’s another hidden waterfall to the left if you walk through the river a little bit.

This place is a little piece of paradise located in Grecia, near Alajuela. You will need to walk almost 1.5 miles to get to the river and waterfalls but the landscape and nature is totally worth the effort, it is recommendable to wear comfortable shoes and a hat to cover from the sun.
You will enjoy swimming in the river or at the bottom of the waterfalls, there are two big ones and a bunch of small ones too.
Please have in mind there are no bathrooms or a place to change your clothes, however you can find an area with camping tables in case you bring food or some snacks.
This place is perfect to breath pure air and have fun with your family or friends, the entry has no cost but if you go by car you need to pay for the parking space, and also you can bring your pets with you.

We arrived at the place really early and were received by Luis who was amazing and explained exactly where we should go to get the best views. When we got to the waterfalls we were totally alone which made the experience even more magical! This place is amazing, so peaceful where one can get in touch with nature. It was amazing to walk through the river, we wore trainers and they were fine, sandals would have been a mistake.
Amazing magical place, highly recommended!
