Beautiful!

Tucked away from view is this pretty waterfall where you can enjoy a dip in the water as well as sit and watch the brave ones that slide down it!

It's very pretty, nice little hike, but the waterfall itself isn't that big or amazing. The water is a great temperature and there is a little rock so you can jump in the river though.

This waterfall was the perfect way to end a hot day in Uvita. It is 1000 colones to go in but super refreshing. There is three main area for swimming and relaxing. Just be careful as the rocks are slick!

Absolutely beautiful waterfall worth seeing. It's a pretty easy climb down to the water. To be honest we didn't know how to get to the top and slide down but it was beautiful either way. We had some all natural/real mixed fruit smoothies at the restaurant too that were the best we ever had!

Lovely way to pass a couple of hours ... our kids (aged 14) had a blast jumping off the cliff and sliding down the waterfall. Entertaining to watch, and the crystal clear water makes for a refreshing swim. Costs around $US2 per person but well worth it. There is a cafe up the top where you can get drinks and... More

My family and I enjoyed our stop at the waterfalls. We had drinks and snacks at the restaurant before heading down, which were inexpensive and good. It costs 1000 colones per person to visit the falls, but definitely worth it. There was a small crowd at the falls when we arrived, but everyone was very friendly and we enjoyed the... More

Ample parking, and a short hike take you to this beautiful waterfall. Entrance costs 1000 colones per person or about 2 dollars. You can slide down the waterfall pictured in the photo. There are several other smaller falls and pools to swim in.

The Uvita Waterfall was easy to find and fun to visit - Our kids are 10 & 11 and handled the trek down to the Waterfall. Pretty Cool - spent an hour swimming and watching as people slide down the Waterfall and jump from a cliff point :)
