  • We came with my boyfriend not expecting much and were pleasantly surprised with the beautiful scenery! Very good price, only $16 per person and you can hike 3-4 hours, pack lunch or get your lunch pre...  more »
  • The falls are superb! The height and the power of the fall is really impressive. The road to get to the entrance of snowfall is very pretty. However, it takes a 4 x 4 to get to the base of the trail. And do not forget to take the small Sloth at the end ;)

  • Very bad information, almost no fluency at the Reseption. There is no restaurant at the waterfall, the roads are very bad. I would never again.

  • 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!!
  • This place was wonderful. the hike is difficult and a little treacherous but well worth. We are from Oregon and see lots of waterfalls but this different. Had the place to ourselves, swam in the pools, heard howler monkeys . great adventure.
  • 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.
  • Nice walk and swim. Not sure you have to pay
  • Very nice waterfalls to visit. Path is a little steep but well marked and maintained. Definitely worth the trip. Not too busy.
