Blue Falls of Costa Rica

Ready for your most incredible blue 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, indeed, 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 genuinely blue river with seven blue waterfalls, three typical waterfalls, rapids, swimming pools, views, nature, and hiking. The starting point for all tours will be Catarata Del Toro, Costa Rica’s Ultimate Secret®.

Blue Falls of Costa Rica - Lss Gemelas

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

And as per the 1st of February 2021, we added an extra blue waterfall: the Tepezquintle. It is a fifteen minutes hike over a jungle trail and through a blue water canyon. A mind-blowing experience. Still for the same price.

Blue river canyon

What has done so far:

– Fencing for almost 3 kilometers.
– A bridge to cross the first internal river safely.
– A paved trail of approximately 1.200 meters and 60 cm wide to the first blue waterfalls.
– Safe access to the Las Gemelas and the blue swimming area.
– Another safe trail, through the jungle and blue canyon, to the blue waterfall Tepezquintle.
– We also acquired an extra 15 hectares covered with primary forest added to the project.
– Internal signs.
– We have planted hundreds of trees and plants alongside the trails.
– A new lookout: That gives you 360 degrees breathtaking views towards national park Poás, including volcano Congo, and towards national park Juan Castro Blanco. Towards the northern plains as to the southern dividing range. Unspoiled incredible Views, Views with a capital.

Tepezquintle

What is on the to-do list for 2021:

Since January 2020 – we are working on a new internal fence of 1.5 km where we can plant our trees. We have already put in boxes hundreds of all kinds of fruit trees, all from the area itself. So, they have no adapting problems. And then, in the coming months, we will plant them in the new internal section. Within the year, you will walk through a paradise! And that will get better every month. Good to know is that we already have wild turkeys, toucans and all other kinds of animals around us. A lot more birds and animals since we started. It is that easy: if there is food, they will show up! So, that promises something for the near future!

February 2021– A safe trail to the blue waterfall Tepezquintle.
March 2021 – A safe trail to the blue waterfall La Celestial I and II.
April 2021 – A safe trail to the blue waterfall La Pintada.

Blue Falls of Costa Rica - Trail

The rest of 2021 and first part of 2022

If things go well: a few lookouts, seating areas, another 2.000 meters paved trails so we can connect all the waterfalls. And we will initiate an official entrance, office, green parking area, bathrooms, showers, picnic area, hanging bridge, and a coffee corner.

We have the brand names registered as the official websites. Probably the Blue Falls website will see the light in February 2021. Sometimes things move faster or slower than expected, not a big deal. We know where we are working to, and that keeps us going!

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. 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 still be so, at least till the end of 2021. But as soon as possible, we will add the waterfall Celestial I and II and the waterfall La Pintada to the Blue Falls – Light tour. Without raising the price. Then later in 2021, we hope that all waterfalls will be accessible for everybody on the same entrance ticket. These achievements automatically will mean that the Blue Falls – Full tour will disappear unless you want to have your private tour guide.

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

2 – Blue Falls – Full
