The road to entrance is on some parts difficult to drive over, but you can come also with normal car (you dont need 4x4). Entrace fee is 1000colones, but i think after 17pm you can come for free, because the girls on cash desk leaves...More

Really close to town and easy to get to - well signed. 1000 colones per person to enter. Stone steps down with a handrail in case it's wet/slippery - maybe 5 minutes walking, if that (and we had a baby with us). A handful of...More

This is a very easy hike down to a beautiful waterfall! And it is literally right in town! So cool that you can walk down to a waterfall in a matter of minutes!

We had our Airbnb call us a taxi to take us here because we had been traveling and were pretty tired. We ended up going mid to late afternoon and I expected it to be much busier than it was. It cost 1000 colones to...More

OK waterfall with swimming spot and "slide". Was SUPER busy and crowded and the water was ver low (end of March). Not my scene..I prefer the more natural waterrfalls with a good hike to get there.

The waterfall is defintitely worth a visit! Surrounded by beautiful plants and animals (lots of lizards!), it is a really relaxing and refreshing place. Although I climed up to the top, I didn't dare slide down the waterfall or jump as others do. Arriving late...More
