This was part of a stop on our ATV tour, another beautiful waterfall in Costa Rica. This is was the first waterfall where I got to see people jumping and sliding down a waterfall. Interesting and terrifying to watch people do this....just wow! The walk down the waterfall isn't too bad, as always watch your step. Great photo opportunities and a place to stop for a some food and drinks as well.

Easy to find from main road, entrance fee 2usd.
On top a small restaurant (more like sandwiches u can have), here u pay the entrance. Washroom, shower facility (extra charge) and very tasty fresh juices!

Steps going down to waterfall, bit uneven but ok to manage.
You can swim in the waterfall lake, you can jump down from top of the waterfall.

There are 2 other smaller "pools" you can bath in.
(No benches or sorts so bring towels, put your belongings on rocks, trees around).
Water clear, fresh.

Good little trip from Manuel Antonio. (Drive like an hour)

We were excited to visit the waterfall and experience the natural slide. Unfortunately the day we went was after a night of heavy rain and the waterfall was rushing to much to get in and feel safe. It is definitely worth a try on most days.

Like most of the people said it's a good spot to rest and listen to the nature.

For those more active you can jump or slide to the pool from the top(be careful), it's very popular for local people(bit be careful with the jump they make it look so easy) pets are allow, in the entrance you pay only $2
They also have toilet, beers and restaurant but make sure if you don't want to buy anything at the place, you should get your things from the supermarket on the way

Very refreshing after the sunny mornings

I never actually made it to the waterfall because my friend and I were mugged by three masked men with machetes on the main road just next to where people park. The policeman told me that it happened in the same place two months ago. Please be careful! I doubt these guys will be caught, so please just bring a towel or whatever you need to swim and nothing else.
