It was such an amazing trip! We spend the afternoon walking across the waterfalls, while we were the only visitors at that moment. The nature is beautiful, the Parc is beautiful and so are the waterfalls. Our car wasn't good enough to reach the parking...More

Definitely off the beaten path...was very grateful for our 4WD vehicle. Isolated, quiet, beautiful. Take the time to hike to all of the waterfalls and take plenty of water! My trekking poles also came in handy for this hike.

The road is rather dicey, we had a small SUV which was helpful. The water is cold, but very refreshing. Trail conditions are better than the road. :)

This is a great side excursion if you are in the Lake Arenal / Tileran area. The drive is a bit bumpy and if you do not have a 4x4 I recommend you walk to the falls from where you buy your tickets versus driving.The...More
