This is one of my favourite places to go in Costatica. Ive done this trail 2 times. In the rainy season we had to cross a couple rivers so prepare to get wet! 2 waterfalls and then you get to the hot springs. So magical.

I don't think I realized what I was getting myself into when I started this hike lol. It was tough! We hiked it in March which is the hottest month of the year. I made the mistake of just wearing hiking sandals. Some parts were so steep and rocky which is rough on the ankles so I definitely recommend boots if you have. It was a beautiful hike though and takes you in and out of different terrains. The last stretch that descends to the waterfall was quite difficult (especially when knowing you have to climb back up that afterwards). The waterfall itself was stunningly beautiful and felt so refreshing- although you're technically not supposed to swim in it luckily nobody was around to stop us- no way was I gonna go through all that and not jump in! As I expected, the hike back was pretty hard for me as it's a lot of uphill. I'm a pretty avid hiker but do get winded easily. I felt so accomplished though once we got back to the car- like I can do anything now!

Great hike in the rain forest. 2 waterfalls near the middle of the hike are both beautiful. Both waterfalls are found on short offshoots of the main trail. You can swim in either. Hot springs at the end are nice and feel about 90-95 degrees F. We saw a ton of spider monkeys playing together on the hike. The road to the trail is awful. There is a rundown ranger station where you check in. $15 per person and they want to see your passports. Bring sunscreen and mosquito spray

WalkingNo shade

Mainly a road hike, which is okay since there's no other trails other the on the beaches. Most of this is in a remote development project area or through Hermosa.

A rustic though crude rural access road. There are Howling monkeys in the trees. The road is fairly rolling until you hit the concrete part then it's nearly 20%. At the top you get a decent view of the cove, beach and resort. As you get half way down the other side there's a gate. End of hike. Return the way you came.

We parked on the side of the road near a lot of construction. We then had to walk through the newly developed condos down to a bar by the beach. The trail started at the beach here, there are clearly marked signs. The trail itself was easy to follow and ended at a beautiful secluded beach. We stopped and had a few drinks at the bar by the trailhead to watch the sunset, they had a happy hour from 530-630.

This is a wonderful trail! Through the dry forest with huge beautiful trees, into the prairies with beautiful views, then down the rocks to a gorgeous waterfall! Told no way to do it in under three hours, but I made it in two hours and 27 minutes! Have to catch a plane now, and will travel home with a big smile on my face! It's great for solo traveler because you do see others, but at 8 AM it was not very busy! Totally worth the travel :-)

This is a nice walk. The trail is part of the Salventura Adventure Park. Check their website for the current entrance fee.

This is a beautiful hike. We paid 2,000 colones per person and per car (i.e 2pp w/ 1 car = 6,000) at the private access point. The guy at the gate offered walking sticks and current weather conditions. The trail is wide and well maintained. We hit very high winds once we reached the ridge. This seems to be typical, so pack accordingly. Loose hats or glasses could fly off. All that said, the views are gorgeous.

Nice easy trail, beautiful waterfall and some cool volcanic activity. Worthwhile if you have the time to spare

Long trail but good reward at the end with a gorgeous waterfall and some relaxation. The hike back is the hard part! Saw some Iguana and lizards, unfortunately no monkeys! Overall great trail and great workout.

Unique hike on a well maintained trail. You will see a volcancito, bubbling sulfur mud pools, catarata (waterfall), amazing trees, and more. Plus you support Costa Rica’s commitment to national parks.

Beautiful trail and loop. Best done early morning as it can get very good during high season. December to May. Be aware of mountain bikers going up or down the trail. Not the best trail signs. Stay on the trail with the orange and white arrow wood signs. Can’t miss them. It’s the trail in best shape and used by mountain bikers. Bring tons of water. The December to May season is the driest and one get get dihydrated very quickly. Don’t be fooled by the beautiful weather and the beauty of Las Catalinas. Dress properly including proper shoes and take sufficient water.
