  • This smaller case is worth a detour, invite many small pools for bathing. The accessibility is easy, directly from the Banco de Costa Rica, is a road in, first paved, then gravel and there are small signs. From the entrance, admission still C 1000 P.p.., arriving in only 5 min. on the case.

  • The waterfall is about 1 km away from the Centrum Uvitas, water is super clean and it super can swim against the Ströhmung, a tip about finds 500 which road to follow and you more for bathing. PS in the hostel Cascada Verde opposite offered a coffee!
