and not too far off the beaten track in the forest...the walk was not difficult and the view was spectacular, even when it is muddy and rain is falling (after all you are in a rain forest). if you are a waterfall buff, this is a great place to stop and wonder and delight.

This is a great waterfall right off the beaten path. We went during the rainy season and the trail was quite muddy but that was expected and made the short hike that much more challenging and fun!

We asked the lovely guides in Monteverde Cloud Forest about this waterfall and they tried to warn us that there was no water in the waterfall anymore, but considering we were in the beginning of rainy season and it had been raining quite frequently, we thought we'd give it a try. First off, the road down is awful, but we... More

There are a lot of steps down to view this spectacular falls, the downside is, you have to come up again. Is it worth it? you can bet your sweet bippy it is. There is a chance to swim in the pool beneath but be careful, rocks are slippery.

If you are in the park and heading in the direction you might as well stop by. The waterfall is not anything special but it does offer a different kind of setting than the green of the forest.

This is a small nice waterfall in the reserve that is worth a visit but do not expect anything spectacular.
