This place is super easy to access and just minutes from the parking spot you'll be down to a green surrounded waterfall with a courageous current and lots of spots to chill and relax for a little while. One single recommendation, don't take too much...More

Very nice little hike down to the waterfall. The waterfall is beautiful and you can use it as a slide. Entrance is 1000 colones
