  • About halfway between Arenal and Monteverde these waterfalls are worth a stop. The path of descent is well made and well kept by the owner for which you go down safely. There are several waterfalls in some of them you can even swim. Along the way there are also small areas for resting and to rest and take in the scenery. The route winds around in the Woods under dense vegetation for which sheltered from the hot sun. En route will accompany endless rows of tagliafoglia ants!

  • GREAT hike! Recommend tennis shoes or hiking shoes. You might want a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get there. Take a rain jacket just in case you get caught in the rain. Beautiful waterfalls. Off the beate...  more »
  • Very sophisticated way with the car and then on foot to all the water falls. Disconnect the good shoes. Car Jeep or something similar! Swimming we have waterfall at the Rainbow. Is not deep but very impressive and we were virtually alone and we could do what we wanted ;)) very good refreshment way is stony, but worth it

  • This was absolutely amazing! Worth the 2 hour drive from the coastal Guanacaste region! You pay at the Google maps location and then drive down the "road" across from the orange office and restaurant. It was a wet day which would have the made the drive down and back up very difficult without 4 wheel drive, so strongly recommend considering that. The hike down to the waterfalls was not easy. Plan to have sturdy footwear that can get wet and muddy and that provides good traction. Handrails are not very sturdy and there were some slippery and loose dirt areas of the trail. The waterfalls were amazing to behold and offered excellent photo and video opportunities. Try to get to all of them! Beautiful views of the valley on the way down and some amazing flora and fauna. Hire me to be your guide in Costa Rica! Would definitely go back with others who have not been to it.
  • Very nice waterfalls to visit. Path is a little steep but well marked and maintained. Definitely worth the trip. Not too busy.
  • Awesome waterfalls, accessible yet still a very challenging hike. About a km of climb down and back up! I went during the dry season and it was great. You can get down there without a 4x4, but it would make me uncomfortable, especially getting back up if it had been raining.
  • Beautiful falls with a major hike in the return. Note that you should have a 4wd car to make the trip to the falls.
  • Jaw droopingly beautiful. We had lunch included for $10 which was basic but very yummy, I would definitely recommend having lunch too. You can’t drive to it without a 4x4. Waterfall walk was not difficult apart from dodging the banana spiders.
