Though the price may be much for some, the experience is worth it!! Just know... what walks down...must walk up!

Took a nice walk down here to the waterfall and climbed around the rocks and took a dip. Visually stunning. Water was refreshing but not cold. Walk down and back was not too bad, break a sweat cooking back up but there are little rest areas with inspirational saying... nice touch. Orchid area was very nice, not too many in bloom when we were there but beautiful nonetheless. Nice little Cafe and the usual gift shop. Easy parking. Fun!

Not too far out of La Fortuna town this is a tourist trap with a difference. There is a good reception area with facilities and then it's downhill using a combination of concrete steps and ramps to a waterfall. The path is high above a forested valley and disappointingly there's a zip wire which passes directly overhead. The waterfall plunges directly into a pool where there are dangerous currents but the viewing platforms are well above and offer superb photo shots. Downstream there are a number of bathing pools in the very chilly waters. On the way back up the 500 steps there are seats and viewing spots which meant that the climb was relatively easy.

Beautiful waterfall. Ice cold water. You do not need a guide. Warning: Climbing back up the hundreds of stairs is not enjoyable.

Walk into the jungle and you will see this spectacular paradise. 700 stairs is nothing compared to the amazing view. Try to let your things behind you will only need good shoes, towel, camera, swimming suit and a snack. Is a short tour so you can have another attraction in the afternoon.
