  • This waterfall is located a few kilometers north of the city of Bagaces, road to Liberia, where there is a detour to the left that leads to this place. These waterfalls are surrounded by lush vegetation and are several meters high. Its waters form a beautiful curtain that falls into a pond where you can swim and that offers the particularity of having a small beach of clear sand. Scramble down a short, steep trail to reach the spectacular 12 meters high, 15 meters wide waterfall, which you will hear before you see. The entire site is surrounded by greenery. In front of the waterfall, there is a sort of beach area where visitors can put chairs or mats for sunbathing and bring their own cooler to spend a nice day with family or friends. From inside, the water is clear, and although the bottom cannot be seen due to the movement of the waterfall, you can see little fish swimming next to you. If you want to explore a bit, there´s a trail over to the left side of the waterfall which takes you to the top. You will have to use your hands a few times but the view at the top is awesome.

    One of the best things about visiting the Llanos de Cortéz Waterfall is that your visit helps support the local community, on your way to the falls, you will come to a small group of people asking for a donation. There is no admission fee to visit the waterfall; instead all donations go directly to the local school, Escuela Llanos del Cortés.

    On weekends this is a popular Tico picnic spot, but on weekdays you´ll often have the waterfall to yourself.
