Package Itinerary

These amazing waterfalls will take your breath away. They are located south of Tilarán on the way to Monteverde, a place where the majestic scenery of the Guanacaste mountain range is incredibly beautiful. There are five waterfalls, you will start at a high point and you will walk downstairs looking at each waterfall. Once you are down in the last waterfall, we will have horses ready to take you back, but they will go through different farms and you will visit the town of San Miguel.

Waterfalls in Costa Rica:

La Fortuna Waterfall

The little farming town of La Fortuna near Arenal Volcano is named for its beautiful neighbor, the La Fortuna Waterfall. As one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the country, it’s appropriate that La Fortuna has become so well known! Luckily enough, it can only be arrived at by foot (a 15-minute hike) or horseback. From the lush rainforest greenery, La Fortuna plummets 200 feet to fall into a pool of crystal clear water. Don’t forget a swimsuit – the pool is delightfully cool on hot summer days!

Rio Celeste Waterfall

The Rio Celeste Waterfall in Tenorio Volcano National Park in the northwestern Guanacaste region is renowned for its hypnotic blue color and tropical surroundings. According to local legend, when God painted the sky, he washed his blue brushes in the river, turning the waters an entrancing shade of turquoise.

La Paz Waterfall Gardens

Located in the Cloud Forest outside of San Jose, the La Paz Waterfall Gardens is the most visited privately-owned ecological attraction in Costa Rica — and for good reason! The area is a combination of a nature walk, five waterfalls, and a rescued wildlife preserve with over 100 species of animals. The preserve also includes a Butterfly Observatory, Serpentarium, Frog Exhibit, and Hummingbird Garden.

You can expect to see the following animals in the gardens — over 40-species of birds including toucans and 26-species of hummingbirds, as well as marmosets, white-headed capuchin monkeys, black-handed spider monkeys, two-toed sloths, jaguars, pumas, and ocelots, and a thriving frog exhibit.

Bajos del Toro Waterfall

What a sight to behold! As one of the most spectacular and tallest waterfalls in the country — with a 90-meter (300-foot) drop — Bajos del Toro Waterfall is hidden away in a valley between the Poás and Rincon de la Vieja Volcanoes, located in the Bajos del Toro Cloud Forest about 1 1/2 hours from San Jose.

Nauyaca Waterfalls

The stunning Nauyaca Waterfalls are located in the South Pacific region of Costa Ballena, just 20 minutes from Dominical. Though featuring less impressive drop-offs than the towering La Fortuna or Bajos del Toro waterfalls, Nauyaca is unique in its layout – it’s split into the upper and lower cascades; water pours over the cliffside to fall over 140 feet before the next 60-foot drop.

One of the most amazing things about this waterfall is the location. Remotely tucked into the deep rainforest, the trip there might be a bit of work, but the views are worth it!
