Montezuma Falls, Montezuma

4.5
Take a steep but reasonably speedy 20-minute hike up the river, observing small water features, until you reach the majestic Montezuma Falls, a beautiful 24 m (78 ft) high cascade of water. Cool off in the large pool at the base of the falls, which is great for swimming, but too shallow for rock jumping. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, scramble up the rough path on the left side of the falls to a deeper pool and a second waterfall, where you can jump safely. Wear sturdy boots, as you’ll have to navigate across slippery rocks throughout the hike.

  • Swim 3 beautiful waterfalls, such as were in the top. 4 m jump in the water, if you want to jump. Which requires a 10 m leap in the Middle, one should be "Native" or young and ceazy because daring. And the trail of the Canopyverabstalter back and forth costs 2000 colones. And you want to go back if the car. But was all in all very nice.

  • A stroll to enjoy walking through a couple of bridges and some beautiful waterfalls. After the walk a refreshing dip in the pools that form under the waterfalls.
