“Must do in Monteverde”

We traveling to Costa Rica to learn about social entrepreneurship and in our travels we always go on adventures. This was a beautiful hike and envigorating. We had a five year old and a 74 year old hike and we all enjoyed it. Remember to wear your bathing suits, the students were jumping in the shivering waterfall and loved it. Must do in Costa Rica.

The waterfall is about 300 feet, the view is just breathtaking. Best part is it's so quiet, I think there are no more than 10 people every day. We were the only family under the waterfall and we had a good swim. The water was cold but so refreshing. The view all along the trail is very very beautiful too. A must go in Monteverde.

On the road to San Jose from Monteverde we drove past the San Luis Waterfall where we stopped and took the hike to this fantastic waterfall. The hike was easy with some neat log bridge crossings. The waterfall was spectacular – with three levels visible and when the sun came out we ventured in for a cold but refreshing dip. It is a beautiful spot and well worth the $10. Also it was deserted at the time so yet again another piece of paradise there just for us!

We have hiked to many a waterfall, including several in Hawaii, but this one took my breath away. As you approach, the falls reveal themselves slowly. The first look appears to be an average waterfall, until you get closer and look up the rock face to several more cascades. The farmer that provides parking and access charges $10/person. Well worth it. Had the hike to ourselves.

You see a lot of waterfalls in Costa Rica, this one is spectacular. The hike is fun and easy for families. The falls are stunning, majestic, incredibly beautiful. We could have spent a lot of time swimming, wading and observing wildlife. It was a great morning adventure and shouldn't be missed if you are visiting Monteverde.
