Definitivamente es un tour que e debe de hacer las 5 cascadas son espectaculares, el recorrido es un poco cansado cerca de 4 km pero vale la pena more »It's definitely a tour that e should make the 5 waterfalls are spectacular, the travel is a little tired about 4 km but worth
Best park I've seen. It's breathtakingly beautiful with 5 amazing waterfalls. You can even walk up behind and under one. The walkways are really made nicely. It's got everything all in one spot. Zoo, butterflies, good food, trout pool, multiple bars to have cocktails, very nice accommodations, the staff is the best I've seen. I like it so much that I got married there. There should be 6 stars for this place!
Excellent park/zoo like atmosphere. If touring Costa Rica this is the place to start. Make this your 1st stop to get a start of what beauty Costa Rica has to offer... Highly recommended!!!
