Do not miss this hike if you are in Montezuma. The waterfall is amazing to see, smell, hear. The water is cool and refreshing so make sure you come with your bathing suit so you can dip in the water. A must see!

Cheap to park at the base, but avoid anyone leading you up the trail, as they are going to ask for a pretty good sum of money at the end, when it is quite easy to traverse without having been. There's another natural pool above...More

I have to be honest and say it was tough physically with all the rocks as well as the mud to get to the waterfalls. We paid the 1 mil colones (2 USD) to have access to the swinging bridges that got us to the...More
