Not for the faint of heart or someone who is not physically fit. Otherwise spectacular! This is not a commercialized property. It's a good 500 steps vertically down the side of a mountain. Some spots have no railings and just mud. We loved it! There is a restaurant and facilities. So many hummingbirds! Take the garden walk it was lovely,... More

There are many waterfalls in CR but of all of the ones I've been to, this is the most impressive. It's beyond words and takes your breath away. I'm really glad I made the detour to visit this waterfall and you will be too. The round trip hike to the bottom is easy if you're fit. At $10 entry, it's... More

Let me just tell you this. Take a bus! Google Maps took me one way through a completely washed out public road. Next it took me tens of miles over the mountain that was a 4x4 only "pig-trail", scared to death and mountain "sick", then finally on the La Fortuna-side of the 702 road there, you could get there, but...

So, 1st- let me say that this is not for anyone who isn't physically fit or anyone that has constricting injuries. You will CLIMB and trek through mud, cross over a mountain and then climb, and jump through the river & large rocks. Truthfully, had I known it was so challenging, I probably wouldn't have gone, but I'm glad I... More

No pain no gain is what we told our 11 yo daughter as we descended to the crater. Wouldn't you know it... This ended up being her favorite hike of Costa Rica. What an amazing experience. I would recommend visiting catarata del toro. For those who do not want to attempt the hike, there are lookout points above the waterfall... More

If you're around Alajuela and have a half day, definitely check this out. But start with an SUV of some sort because the road isn't for passenger cars. It's not dangerous, just in great need of repair. It's definitely keeping the tourist traffic to a minimum, which is nice. At one point, the road is somewhat narrow and the valley... More

This attraction includes a waterfall, small restaurant, and repelling adventure. The scenery, surroundings, foliage, and especially the waterfall are all true wonders of nature. This site is located in the middle of a rain forest and there are literally hundreds of different trees, flowers, plants, and rainforest wildlife. The road to get here is a bit rough and I would...

The waterfall is spectacular. We had a clear day. The views along the hike were amazing. Tip: stay overnight on Sun when the falls and trails are closed except for the overnight guests. We had the falls and the trail to ourselves which made it even more peaceful and enjoyable. We only walked through parts of the gardens, but the... More
