Beautiful, non commercial gem! Only a handful of people there, staff was very friendly! I loved that it was a family place!

OVERVIEW:
This is easily one of my favorite activities in the 4 trips I've taken in CR. An absolute muat see if you're in the area.

THE GOOD:
- extraordinarily natural falls, pretty highn with a swimable bassin at the bottom, but you have to walk in the water and on rocks to get there (bring water shoes!) But once theren you are in a knee-high bowl with falls surrounding you and modest current so you can stand on thesandy bottom - spectacular and surreal!
- max 25-30 min hike in the shade, with a few mildly steeper inclines but with straight portions in between. Good areas to grip your feet on (steps, roots and rocks) all allow for solid footing.
- minimal cost : 1000 col for parking, 1500 col each.
- a significant number and variety of butterflies when you get close to the falls
- bathrooms at the top and bottom
- very few visitors. We spent 45 min alone and only crossed othera on our way back up (we were there early)

THE UNFORTUNATE:
- Few birds and wildlife
- dangerous rope and board bridge at the bottom that is not closed off but has planks that are missing
- although trail is relatively easy and short, there are lots of leaves that can be sometimes slippery

Definitely recommend

So the waterfalls are beautiful! BUT if you have bad knees, hips or back, is risky. I have all 3, and it took me 1.5 hours to get down and 1 to get back. The trail is, in my opinion, not maintained for people who are not young and/or fairly fit. It is steep, goes up and down, over tree roots and rocks. At one point I sat down and scooted. My hubby was kind and pulled me up or braced me when I had to step down. I used 2 bamboo walking poles, and they really helped. I will be in a lot of pain from this. If you go, bring water. If you have bad joints, mobility issues, or balance issues, I'd think twice about it.

Awesome waterfalls. Quite a hike to get there but worth it. To see the second waterfall, you have to cross the pond at the bottom of the first and walk a rocky trail, again worth it.

THIS PLACE IS CLOSED! The trails are dangerous. do NOT go! There were trees down and erosion. It is privately owned by the water company, I think. We were trespassing...

A moderate walk to the falls but very well worth it. The falls are spectacular! Not a lot of people and places to swim. Bring a lunch and spend the day!

I have been guiding in Costa Rica for 10 years. I just learned about this place after 20 years residing in the country. Wonderful experience. Sure, I went on a weekday in COVID times and avoided the weekend crowd, which I recommend to do if you are seeking peace in nature. The family, who takes care of the parking and the paths is very friendly and grateful for the visit. Recommended place, hidden gem!

Great place to get away from the heat. Beautiful falls are about 1 km down a fairly steep, but maintained trail from parking. Trail though jungle and bamboo stands.

We recently visited and initially were dismayed by big signs at the entry point saying they were closed and it was dangerous to press ahead. Nether the less we pressed on and found a local landowner has opened a new path to compensate for the other route which was damaged during Hurricane Nate. It was a moderate hike in and out and the reward at the falls was worth every step. I would say that anyone is reasonable shape should be able to do it, even accounting for slippery rocks at the bottom for the last 100 yards to the falls.
