As you walk through the trails of this primary forest you will have the opportunity to appreciate the countless variety of plants and trees. Take your time to spot tropical birds, butterflies and other wildlife. Experience the true beauty of the rain forest environment.

The first trail is a self-guided tour all the way to the bottom of the most impressive waterfall of Costa Rica which is second to none in beauty and splendor; it throws itself 90 meters into an old extinct volcanic crater. First 500 meter of the trail is flat and has several fantastic lookouts; second part is also 500 meters with steps with high impact. People with heart conditions or any other medical condition, older people, pregnant women, etc. should not go down. For the rest of the people they need to take their time coming back up. The 350+ steps are safe and partly made of concrete and it has several sitting areas and the views are incredible.

While hiking down do not forget to look up once in a while to enjoy the rock formations of this ancient volcanic crater and all its colors. Probably you will also notice the special chemical composition of the water.

Whoever takes the effort to go down will be rewarded with the best waterfall experience of Costa Rica!

The second trail leads you through the forest and garden. This easy hike brings you to the edge of the crater from where you easily spot the waterfall from different angles. Besides that, the trail goes through a primary forest with some nice trees, with a spectacular view of the canyon and the national park. Make a walk in our ever-under-construction-bird-garden which has been designed to attract birds and all kind of animals. So, do not expect a flower garden, but you will have nice views and soon there will be a lot of birds and other wildlife.

We have been planting lots of fruit trees from the area which will attract numerous birds under which the toucan and the quetzal; bananas for the monkeys and birds, bushes with flowers which already attracts hundreds of hummingbirds, heliconia’s, etc. Soon we will make some seating areas from where you can enjoy the amazing views and peace.
