This stunning attraction is located 3.5 miles from La Fortuna town; at the base of the dormant Chato volcano amidst a thriving rain forest, the location for this waterfall couldn't get any better. The waterfall is accessible by foot or horseback. The hike to the waterfall takes about 20 minutes and about an hour to arrive by horse. Both ways lead through lush tropical forest, offering up chances to spot toucans, monkeys, and other tropical creatures.
The waterfall itself is about 230 feet high, and plummets into a natural pool of water that is perfect for swimming!. Splash about with friends, take pictures, and enjoy one of nature's finest sights. A non-profit organization runs the waterfall, using the entrance fee to help maintain the surrounding area. There is a visitor's center at the entrance where souvenirs can be purchased.
