“Awesome, if you can even get all the way there”
Review of San Luis Waterfall

San Luis Waterfall
Reviewed December 25, 2012

The hike was beautiful! Amazing! A great experience really! However, you must be very fit in order to complete this hike. The trail is very small and rocky. Ans if it's raining, slippery and muddy. In addition to that there were some "bridges" you had to. Ross in order to reach the waterfall. You have to cross a one foot wide slippery plank across a rushing river 6 feet below. I recommend it but only if you're prepared to get muddy, and are very fit and willing!

This is 45 min. hike thru the cloud forest.
The trail is muddy, so you should wear hiking boots.
The trail crosses the river several times.
You can really swim in the waterfall. We were planning to, but it was a little bit chilly in there.
Definitely recommend it!

Beautiful (though bumpy drive) with small stream-crossing, adventurous hike with river crossings on bridges made of tree lots, and stunning waterfall. We had the place to ourselves which was great!

Well-maintained trail to waterfall. Good opportunity for wildlife watching along the trail. Recent landslide wiped out part of the trail, but the owners are quick to repair it. Swimming hole at the base of the waterfall but there was so much water coming down it seemed a bit dangerous. Probably better swimming opportunity in the dry season.

This is a beautiful site on the outskirts of Monteverde -- great way to go see it is by horseback. Well worth the visit. If you go by horse, you'll have to leave the horse at a certain point and then hike in about 30 minutes. Well worth it!
