We thought that the price to enter the park was very expensive just to see a waterfall. There is nothing much more to explore in the park. There are a lot of other waterfalls in the country that are just as nice and far less...More
The price to just go to the waterfall is quite expensive at $18usd - the best way to see it is to book a zipline tour (if your up for adventure) in the morning and then spend the afternoon going to the waterfall. To get...More
We visited the falls as part of a combined tour. The climb down and up can be a bit challenging for anyone unused to stairs. But the view is worth it. If you want to swim beneath the falls then you have to climb down...More
Having read the rave reviews, we were really disappointed here.

It is a long climb down to the waterfall (500 steps we were told)

Prior to us attempting the La Fortuna waterfall hike we read the various reviews on trip advisor. It sounds like a lot of people are very discouraged by the way they experienced this. It appears that they have used a different tour operator than we...More
Totally worth all the stairs (they're not that bad) The waterfall itself is so beautiful and swimming feels amazing, but it is very cold. You can't swim so close to the waterfall because they will blow the whistle at you. Definitely a must see.
the waterfall is very beautiful, worth seeing. the swimming was fun, but they don't let you get too close to the waterfall for safety reasons (which was a let down). water is pristine.
the hike down, and then back up the stairs to get there...More

Hola, gracias por tu consulta, desgraciadamente en este caso la única ruta hasta la catarata es por la carretera ya que las zonas de bosques son propiedades privadas y no es recomendable caminar por estos terrenos.
