  • A beautiful walk to a couple of hours between nature and waterfalls. pristine environment, you walk down a path well cared where nature is the host. Without difficulty you see hummingbirds, leaf-cutting ants, spiders, iguanas. I recommend having this stopover between Arenal and monte and green.

  • Not worth for anything worthwhile to pay $ 16 per person. There are 3 nothing impressive waterfalls that can be seen on any site without paying, only 1 of them is worth the walk. The facilities are nothing cared.

  • Visited today. Place was easy to find. Very welcoming family. Definitely recommend a 4x4 vehicle with relatively decent clearance to get down the road to the 2nd parking lot where the hiking starts - LOTS of bumps in the road and worth taking your time. Hike was enjoyable. Waterfalls were breathtaking. Downside is that they have 2 taps that are labelled as having drinking water, neither of which worked. Wasn't a huge deal since we brought our own, but we were a sweaty mess by the end and could have used the extra hydration. We swam in the 3rd waterfall. Was fairly shallow and not a lot of rocks on the bottom. Thrilling experience. Would rate moderate difficulty. Essentially 1km uphill on the way back. We both do the stair master on a regular basis and this had us out of breath. There was only one other couple there at the same time, so if you're looking for something less crowded and off the beaten path, this is a great way to go. $16 per person, money well spent.
  • Bellas cataratas, no es apto para personas con dificultad para caminar.
  • Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area!
  • Worth stopping on the way to Monteverde
  • Fabulous!
