See the best of La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano area in just one day with this tour. Start with a hike along the La Fortuna River, continuing to a suspension bridge tucked deep into the jungle. Then walk to a local indigenous village followed by a traditional lunch. In the afternoon, visit the Arenal Volcano for more hiking before wrapping your day up with a soak in a natural thermal river.

Our family of 4 visited La Fortuna Waterfall on October 12, 2020. We appeared to be the only ones in the park that afternoon due presumably to reduced tourism because of COVID-19. Needless to say, having the entire place to ourselves was pretty amazing. We purchased our tickets in advance online and after washing our hands (Costa Rica COVID protocols are particularly good) were introduced to the park by the very nice person at the reception desk. We then made our way down the ~500 steps to the spectacular and powerful waterfall. While we couldn’t swim by the waterfall, our kids had a blast swimming in the pools a little downstream and hiking around the rocks. It was definitely worth the price of admission, especially since kids were free. One tip, if you are also going to visit Hanging Bridges look to see if there is a combined package (we missed out on one after already buying standalone tickets). Highly recommend if you are in the La Fortuna area!

Before the upgrades and investment in infrastructure, visiting this waterfall was a dangerous steep and slippery way down. Now it is very easy to go down the 500 steps, with enough resting spots to enjoy the forest and catch a breath. Be sure to go as early as possible as a lot of people come to see and take a dip in these crystal clear waters. Nice services like bathrooms, changing rooms and restaurant at the beginning of the trail.

How can you charge to see this? Its a totally ordinary waterfall. Do not pay for this, it's a waste of your money

We got the waterfall all to ourselves. Getting there is pretty easy, after parking they welcome you in at the front desk and explain to your how to get to the waterfall. You need to go down a lot of stairs (dont worry there are resting points on the way up) to the bottom of the pond were the waterfall is in plain sight. It is an amazing sight. The water is cold but refreshing! Take some snacks and make it a half day. We got the waterfall to ourselves and saw a lot of fished, hummingbirds, frogs and other nature creatures. Following all Covid safety rules. Amazing experience.

We had a stop at the Waterfall as part of a tour of the volcano and other. First you walk down down and when you are there you just have to have a swim. Walking up again is good for the training :)
