We are happy to introduce our second project: Blue Falls of Costa Rica – Nature as perfect as it can get and, indeed, the mother of all blue rivers in Costa Rica.
All waterfalls are safely accessible. You can visit: El Tepezquintle, Las Gemelas, La Celestial, La Turquesa, and La Pintada.
With the most beautiful parts already given to us, like the rivers, trees, and the layout, we want to improve the project in total harmony with nature or at least as much as possible. Remember that Rome wasn’t built in one day either, and all the above: Deo Volente.
The minimum time you should consider is 2 hours, but now you can easily spend 3 to 4 hours, or if it fits you, the whole day. There is no minimum age; however, you must watch your children. We always will have tour guides watching, advising, and helping. The total walking distance is around 4.5 km, easy to moderate walk. There are six blue waterfalls to visit and many pools. You can freely choose how many of them you want to explore. It is all up to you. Also, we now offer very nice viewpoints and picnic areas. No reservations are needed.
You can expect beauty, up to six blue waterfalls, rapids, a virgin forest, and a beautifully secluded part of the river. Besides that, blue swimming pools, mountains, birds, views, a beautiful hike, a workout, a good feeling, and happiness to be back. So let’s beat your expectations! If you purchased the combo, the next tour would be Catarata Del Toro, Costa Rica’s Ultimate Secret®.
You must bring walking shoes or boots, anti-slip tennis- or water shoes for the swimming part, or just old tennis shoes for the entire trip, swimming gear, anti-mosquito repellent, a sun blocker, 1.5 liters of drinker water, snacks, and a camera.
We supply a safe and guarded parking lot, restroom before and after, a walking stick, a tour guide, and the most beautiful experience.
Duration: 2-3 hours.
Age: 4 – 67+
Weight: Easy to medium
Total Walking Distance: 4.5 km.
Price: USD 15.
Reservation: It is not needed.
Opening Hours: Monday to Saturday 07.00 – 17.00 hours and Sunday is closed.
The best time will be early mornings during the rainy season, and the final opening hours depend on the weather. And if you want to do Catarata Del Toro, Costa Rica’s Ultimate Secret®, on the same day, the combo price will be USD 25 = value for money!
Note: Age limits are just an indication. If you are 67+ but healthy and fit, then, of course, you are welcome. If you have any questions about the age limits, please get in touch with us.
Necessary to know and accept: Accept the limitation of liability, no pets, and no kids under six. We offer no transportation to and from our start location: Google Maps – Waze: ‘Catarata Del Toro.’ The customer is responsible for punctuality and bringing the correct clothes/shoes/gear. There is a possibility to buy breakfast, lunch, or a snack.
Good to Know: The tour is as safe as possible. Getting to higher grounds and safety is easy if an earthquake or another natural disaster hits. And also offer the most convenient access. We have liability insurance from the INS, guaranteed by Costa Rica. We care for nature; we pay and treat our employees fairly and squarely.
As of September 1st, 2023, we no longer offer the Blue Falls Full Extreme tour. At least not in its present form.
There are a few reasons for this. First, we have significantly improved the trails and waterfront access. Everyone can visit all waterfalls on the same entrance ticket. Secondly, it showed that most clients did not have the energy to do more after seeing all the waterfalls already included in the standard entrance ticket. So, there is no justification for the price difference anymore. That is why.
Nevertheless, there are many opportunities to offer an extreme tour. But maybe that extreme tour is too intense for most. The other point of selling is that many love to have their private tour guide anyway—especially single female visitors. So, we will return to you later this year with a newly designed tour. But if you need or prefer to have your private tour guide, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us upfront, and we will arrange this against a small compensation.
Why is the river blue? Well, it is optical. The water contains a mineral called aluminum sulfate that is bigger than average. And when the light (from the sun) shines on it, the water reflects a blue color. Read the study from the University of Costa Rica here.
Hereunder, you will find another two awesome videos made by our friends from Australia. The first video is a highlight, and the second is the full version. Be aware that the first part of either video shows Blue Falls of Costa Rica, and the second part shows Catarata Del Toro.
