About us – Catarata Del Toro is a private owned reserve of 100 hectares or 250 acres. Located a little north of San José and the international airport Juan Santamaria and on the Caribbean side of the central mountain range. The reserve borders two national parks, Juan Castro Blanco (which is one of the two water parks in the world !) and Poás, on both sides for 1.5 miles which creates a ‘lost in the jungle’ feeling of 50.000 acres or 20.000 hectares. The first neighbor in the south and the north is 0.5 mile away, the east and west part are neighbor free. The valley of Bajos Del Toro, where we are located, is almost 100% unspoiled. Here you can find mountains, many more waterfalls, forest, national parks and a lot of wildlife. As said before: unspoiled, what leaves a lot of opportunities for sustainable tourism :). You are welcome!
Since that day we have opened 10 hectares for the public and this part includes the famous waterfall Catarata Del Toro, one of the waterfalls in Costa Rica you have to see. And since April 2017, on the other side of the property, we have opened our second project: Blue Falls of Costa Rica. This will be developed to full maturity in the coming years. Besides those two projects there are also some real estate developments in the form of building lots.
The reserve is owned by a Dutch – Costa Rican couple.
Catarata Del Toro and Blue Falls of Costa Rica wants to offer their visitors a ‘WOW’ experience. Everything as natural as it is possible. WYSIWYG – What You See Is What You Get. Visitors always leave different as they came in, and hopefully with a special extra love for nature and Costa Rica.
By opening the reserve to the public on Monday to Saturday and offering value for money.
Being aware that the environment, as we know it, is changing rapidly caused by human interference. Please do watch Home and you know where we are talking about. And we know that we have the responsibility to act as a good steward. Our location between two national parks and in cooperation with the authorities gives us a unique chance to preserve what we have and create zones and buffers for the ecosystems. Ultimate goal for the owners is to create a special tourist attraction based on the natural beauty of the reserve and surroundings with as less human impact as possible. So that countless people from around the world can be blessed by this reserve: economically, physically and mentally and that for decades to come.
We like to use this moment with you to draw your attention to the most needed ones in Central-America, children in Guatemala. AMG Guatemala is a Christian non-profit organization who helps more than 8.000 children daily in Guatemala with: food, education, medical care, safety, the Gospel and more. All of these children are from broken families and are in some way (severe) hurt.
Please check their website and if you feel it in your heart please support.
We, as a couple and as a business, are committed to help what we can. So, we do sponsor some children through AMG Guatemala. Hereunder a photo of our visit in August 2018. They were so gentle and sweet! Check the picture and feel free to sponsor too.
