What we’ll do

After the introduction in the new reception building, guests enter the adjacent trail through the lattice-wooden gate, and soon begin the descent, dropping 100 m to the river trail, finally reaching the waterfall. Steps are sometimes steep, but have handrails. All of this takes place on trails passing through mostly undisturbed, beautiful tropical montane forest. Watch for birds and mammals…

What else you should know

The steps down the canyon to the river are steep and not necessarily smooth. Any physical limitations that might affect walking safely down, or climbing up these many steps, must be kept in mind.

Where you'll be

Our beautiful river canyon with its spectacular waterfall can be reached only on our trail. There is nothing else like it in the Monteverde area, although a small waterfall can be seen in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve. Even though our waterfall is in the middle of Monteverde and close to the main road, few people had seen it before the trail was constructed. Once in the river canyon, you will feel like you are in the midst of a wilderness.
