Beautiful waterfall and very easy acces. Also good for a swim, because it doesn't have a strong current. Only downside is getting on top of the waterfall, this is a slightly risky climb along the wall

When else in your life can you say you slid down a waterfall? It is an easy walk to the falls and only costs a few dollars to enter.

The waterfall is a wonderful place to hang out and spend the day! There is a natural slide that looks a little scary at the top but is super easy and fun to go down! Don't miss out by not trying it!

The Uvita waterfall is amazing. It's a few minutes off the main road, free parking on the street, you pay a $2 fee to walk down a 30 second downhill hike to falls. The adventurous can jump or slide down the upper falls and everyone...More

we popped up the road to this natural swimming pool and enjoyed a dip. it is not huge and it is popular but we got to swim and to see the lovely space around the water. worth the modest entrance fee.
