We did this hike the 2nd week in December. My wife and I are very use to doing the long hikes or hikes with 3,000 elevation gain and I can say that this hike definitely would count as “moderate to difficult”. This hike is very, very steep, though the hike is not very long. The beginning of the hike had a nice views of the La Fortuna area and the hike through the rainforest was also beautiful. We got to the top, saw the lake at the bottom of the lagoon, but the color was not as spectacular as shown on Google Image site. We then got all the way to the bottom of the lagoon and some people even took a swim there. It was a guided hike and some people had a very hard time climbing steep sections of the trail. After the hike we drove to La Fortuna waterfall, had a lunch there and then went all the way down to the small lake where the falls hit the bottom. My wife went swimming there, but the walk to the water is extremely rough, so have your water shoes if you want to take a deep there. Also water was windy and rough and quite chilly, I would say around 68F. The weather was OK the entire hike: it was not sunny, but it did not rain. Good hike if you want to hike in La Fortuna area.
