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...More

2 amazing waterfalls. Tucked away in untouched nature this is a hidden gem. Well worth the trip and the walk to the falls themselves. You can even get in the water (if the current is not too strong) and get under one of the waterfalls.

This was an excellent trip to see the beautiful waterfall but definitely not for the faint hearted. The walk down through the rainforest is steep and slippy in parts so a walking stick and strong shoes are a must. It was well worth the trek...More
