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

Low-key, not highly developed spot with lovely waterfalls and pools to swim and play in. There is a hike down to the river, but the trail is well-maintained and gentle. Bring your own picnic and carry out your trash. It's delightful!

I don't remember exactly but it was no more than $3 - $5 and it's about a dollar cheaper for Costa Rica residents.
