  • Beautiful waterfalls! Our guide took us there on the way from La Fortuna to Monteverde. We paid an entry fee of 16.00 USD (approx. 13.00 GBP), I think.. and then were taken down a very bumpy road in a...  more »
  • We stopped here on our way to Monteverde ( we didn't make it to Monteverde.) We loved it so much that we decided to spend the whole days enjoying the falls. We were a group of 5 and only saw 2 other p...  more »
  • Viento Fresco is a complex of four waterfalls, which is an hour's drive from Monteverde in the land of green hills (as I called it) with incredible views. There is a large family in the reserve: women work in the kitchen and prepare dinners for tourists, men raise horses and work as guides. I recommend taking a tour on foot and riding. To the waterfalls you walk through the stunning landscape, and along the way the guide is looking for you animals (we saw a snake, a giant frog the size of a handball ball, parrots and monkeys, then go down ...

  • I did the 3hr with horseback riding, it was not worth the $55. First of all it didn't even last 3hrs, it was barely 2hrs, then the horseback riding part was only the last 30 minutes or so...it only went up a hill and not past or thru any waterfalls. It was rigorous hiking to see the waterfalls. They were pretty, but not that amazing. The best part was the home cooked lunch when we got back for an additional $5. Ohhhh and they made us pay in cash, we barely had enough money to pay them after that surprise!
  • If you are searching for waterfalls, in which you can swim, here we go. 4 of them on 1km of steep stairways. Beautiful nature. Private property. 16USD entrance fee. Toilets and drinking water from pipe included. Have a nice day and don't litter.
  • Very nice place, where you can see 4 waterfalls and it is possible swiming in two of them! Only minus is way from cash desk to parking - you must buy ticket in cash desk, which is situated along main road. After you drive to the parking - way is absolutly bumpy! Entrance cost16 USD fo forigners (residents 12 USD). We saw there birds, snake, ants, lizards.
  • We ate at the restaurant just before you start the walk to the waterfall. The chicken dish was very tasty. Better than some high end restuarant s in san jose!. Must eat here if you visit the waterfall
  • I have this a 5 because it's worth every penny you spend!!! It's a hike not for the faint-of- heart. If you are in moderate to good shape, you can make it all the way to the Slide Waterfall. There are 4 other waterfalls that are not as hard on the knees. I would highly recommend to go and see.... You might find some friends along the way!!
