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.

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.
