#13 of 21 in Parks in Monteverde
Surrounded by verdant rainforest, San Luis Waterfall plummets an impressive 100 m (330 ft) into a pool below. Take a dip beneath the falls, have a picnic, and keep your eye out for monkeys and different varieties of birds in the thick forest surrounding. Choose from several options for getting to the waterfall; you can opt for a scenic horseback ride or three-hour trek through the forest (but be sure to wear appropriate footwear as it can get slippery). Alternatively, taxis are also available to the site. Put San Luis Waterfall into our Monteverde trip builder site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Monteverde.
