  • 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! 
  • Small waterfall. Do only if you are in the Park, otherwise it is not worth of this move for so little.

  • Like all the places in the Highlands of Costa Rica is impressive. Age-old trees, stone benches and, of course, a beautiful waterfall. Well, a little too had to resemble. But sea memorable pictures
