In spite of the short but rather difficult hike, this is definitely a place you should visit if you're in the area. The difficulty was related to the rainy season conditions at the time, and not so much the terrain itself, which was for us...More
If you don't get to see any other waterfalls in Guanacaste, there is a chance that you will be driving past this one and it is worth it for a short trip.

My wife and I were driving from San Jose, CR to Playa del Hermosa and she wanted to see this waterfall which was right on the way as we were taking Route 1.
