Blue Falls of Costa Rica

Untitled-1-1

Ready for your bluest and coldest waterfall experience in Costa Rica?

We are happy to introduce our second project: Blue Falls of Costa Rica – Nature as perfect as it can get and truly the mother of all blue rivers in Costa Rica.

Situated close to Catarata Del Toro in Bajos Del Toro, Sarchí we will offer you something mind blowing. A truly blue river with 7 blue waterfalls, 3 normal waterfalls, rapids, swimming pools, views, nature and hiking in one. Starting point for all tours will be Catarata Del Toro, Costa Rica’s Ultimate Secret®.

Since late 2017 we are offering this amazing project. And we are proud to inform you that we have made progress since then. As we speak, we can inform you that you can reach the first blue waterfalls, the so-called Las Gemelas and the blue swimming area, completely safe and mud free!

What has been done so far:

– fencing for almost 2 kilometers.
– a bridge to cross the first internal river safely.
– a paved trail of approximately 1.200 meters and 60 cm wide all the way to the first blue waterfalls.
– safe access to the Las Gemelas and the blue swimming area.
– also, we acquired an extra 15 hectares covered with primary forest what will be added to the project.
– internal signs.

What is on the to-do list for the rest of 2019 and 2020:

June 2019 – the first phase of a safe trail to the blue waterfall Tepezquintle.
July 2019 – in co-operation with the Minae and volunteers we are going to plant 1.000+ native fruit trees. These trees will be planted next to the internal rivers and creeks. In a couple of years, it will attract birds and wildlife in plentitude and probably the Quetzal will return.
Rest of 2019 – a few lookouts, seating areas, access to the waterfall La Celestial and another 1.200 meters of paved trail.
The year 2020 – if things go well, we will finish the internal trails and we can connect all the waterfalls and initiate the building of an official entrance, offices, green parking area, bathrooms, showers, picnic area, hanging bridges and a coffee corner.

Most beautiful

With the most beautiful parts already given to us, like the rivers, trees, and the layout, we just want to improve the project in full harmony with nature or at least as much as possible. The project is not finished yet, far from that, we know, but we are running on schedule. Three years we said before to complete it and probably it will be three years or a little more. Just remember that, as they say in Holland: Aachen and Köln were not built in one day either. And all the above: Deo Volente.

Two different tours

We always offered two different tours, that will be still so, the coming months. But as soon as possible, we will add the waterfall Tepezquintle (July 2019?) and the waterfall Celestial (January 2020?) to the Blue Falls – Light tour. Without raising the price. Then later in 2020, we hope that all waterfalls will be accessible for everybody on the same entrance ticket. These achievements automatically mean that the Blue Falls – Full tour will be cancelled.

However, we are planning to add a guided extreme tour …  just stay tuned. Thank you for reading so far, anyway.

For the moment, we offer two different tours:
1 – Blue Falls – Light

2 – Blue Falls – Full

Please scroll down for a video, and more information.
