Terraced cataract in the preserve. Walking paths are generally well maintained in the immediate area so an easy walk (reserve still recovering in some areas from Hurricane Nate's rainfall). Well worth the modest additional exertion

The water was so refreshing and our guide to get there was professional and accurate. They views and scenery to get there are just stunning. Would definitely recommend. Take a water camera and explore & have fun.

This is a great waterfall right off the beaten path. We went during the rainy season and the trail was quite muddy but that was expected and made the short hike that much more challenging and fun!

We asked the lovely guides in Monteverde Cloud Forest about this waterfall and they tried to warn us that there was no water in the waterfall anymore, but considering we were in the beginning of rainy season and it had been raining quite frequently, we...More

Sorry, the waterfall is closed because it is dangerous. Two people have died already don't push it!
