Some accurate information on here already if you read the last dozen or so reviews. Thank Heaven for Tripadvisor so you can know before you go. Follow the signs for Pura Vida Gardens and the waterfall hike is clearly marked at a turnoff (small parking area) before it. The man in the hut, pay $20/pp, the walking sticks. All true!... More

We travel to Costa Rica quite a bit and love to hike different waterfalls. We got there mid morning and only saw 6 other people on the trail. It is a very steep and long hike but if you're up for really immersing yourself in Costa Ricas beauty and nature I highly suggest it! It is $20 to park and... More

My boyfriend and I found this hike on TripAdvisor and we are REALLY glad we did. The start of the hike was not hard to find, and there's a little section for parking (we got there at 8am, but not sure how filled it gets later on in the day). The guy that owns the land was waiting there for... More

Awesome hike! The falls were outstanding and refreshing. There were a few pools to swim in and cool off. Lots of wild life to see.

It is a great place to visit during your stay in Jaco. A great place to bring your own food and enjoy the day surrounded by nature.

We went to the waterfall (catarata) next to Pura Vida Gardens in the morning and spent 3 hours there. The entrance fee is $20 per person and to hike to the waterfall takes about 1.5 hours (it takes another hour to get back). The trail is beautiful and we got to see birds, leaf cutter ants, butterflies and a poison... More

This hike is not for the weak. I do every year and the experience is always great. Make sure to carry water and good water proof hiking shoes. I just love swiming at the different pools and standing infront of the water fall is a must the power received and the feeling has no explenations. If you are not a... More

We were not necessarily prepared for this - being water and good hiking shoes! The guy at the gate said it was 45 down and 45 mins up. We saw birds and poison dart frogs and lizards on the way. We did not hike to the waterfalls, instead stopping at the second pool which was fantastic! We lounged around for... More

We were told it was 45 minutes down & 45 minutes up.............what a joke. It took us over 3 hours to get back & the man at the hut had left for the day. If one of us had been hurt, no one was anywhere around to help us.. You can see this waterfall, plus others from Pura Vida Gardens... More
