Welcome to Catarata Del Toro, Costa Rica’s Ultimate Secret® a privately-owned ecological waterfall project and Second to None in Beauty and Splendor.

And if you prefer to discover new places in your private space, come over; we never have crowds. So, if you like waterfalls in the most natural way possible, this is the place to visit.
First, you will see Costa Rica’s most impressive waterfall tumbling into an old volcanic crater. Then, with the rock formations, flora, and fauna, i.e., the complete setup, the experience is unforgettable and breathtaking.
And at the upper part, you will enjoy the views with our four lookouts, trees, flowers, forest, gardens, panoramic views, birds, and not to forget all the fantastic hummingbirds circling your head. Super and Magnifique, as our French clients like to describe it.
All this beauty together will give serene tranquility. No photo does this place justice.
Catarata Del Toro is a private ecological reserve, and we want to share its beauty with you. Many globetrotters have assured us that the Catarata Del Toro waterfall certainly belongs in the top 10 waterfalls of the world. We invite you to come over and check it yourself. So, please put Catarata Del Toro on your ‘Need to see’ list.
We also want to emphasize our second-biggest natural wonder: birds! With 212 species counted and some endemic species.
Our location is perfect. Close enough for a day trip from San José or Alajuela. Located halfway between the international airport SJO and La Fortuna, you will enjoy a fantastic scenic route.
