Not a very exciting hike up and very hot when not in shade, but the falls are worth it!

3820 metros de fortaleza mental, acompañado a senderos maravillosos!

Beautiful walk along the ocean. Land crabs, sloths, monkeys & gorgeous beaches!

Trail was a bit slippery. Freezing cold on top of the mountain. Bring rain gear, warm stuff and gloves! Tough hike all around but very enjoyable.

The falls are worth the effort of this hike. Start early because it gets sunny and hot fast. Most of the trail to the falls is uphill. There are steep areas with loose rocks. when we visited there were also muddy areas. There are areas with little shade. Bring protection from the sun and hydration. There is shade around the falls and the water is cool. It was fun to climb around the lower waterfall. We took some video footage of the hike and falls https://youtu.be/u4vGRo786b4

Trail was in relatively good condition. Hiked with wife and four kiddos (ages 10, 8, 4 and almost 2). Baby was carried. Steep spots in some places. Miss May point is absolutely stunning. Keep little ones in check. Several places to slip and fall.

Do exactly what Ray Schmidt says below, start in Puerto Vargas in the morning, then have a late lunch in Cahuita. Was perfect. Great hike. Took a little longer because we stopped and swam and spent a lot of time staring at monkeys. Lots of monkeys in the trees by the beach.

Did this trail with the wife and four kids (ages 10, 8, 4 and almost 2). The baby was carried, but the rest were troopers. Flat trail with lots of sand. I regretted wearing the hiking sandals. Beautiful wildlife and scenery. We saw toucans, squirrels, monkeys, lizards and my son almost grabbed hold of a tropical bird snake. This trail is a must-do if you're in the area. Do yourself a favor and ride the bus back to Cahuita. Especially if you have little children.

A coastal walk along a beautiful beach, the trail is flat and easy to navigate. The tide pools near the point are fun for the kids to play in. Pay attention to the sky behind you, storms can move in rapidly.

Definitely worth the effort! The weather is so uncomfortable and I was soaked before I got there but the waterfalls are incredible and the jungle is beautiful. Would definitely recommend.

Vraiment magnifique. C’était comme se balader dans une carte postale. On a vu plusieurs animaux: paresseux, chauve-souris, singes, tortue... On s’est baigné dans une mer cristalline.

Beautiful spot!! Try and get there as early as possible. For those taking the bus the first bit down to the parking lot is fine heading down but pretty tough coming back up, especially if it’s sunny and hot like it was for us! Amazing pool to swim in. Totally worth any payment! A must if you’re in the area.

I would classify the trail as moderate to difficult but worth the effort. Get there early to avoid the crowds. We hiked for an hour and arrived to find just a guide and his nephew at the end of the trail. We had the waterfalls and the pool all to ourselves for at least 30 minutes.

So here's the deal with this trail: you can either start from the Puerto Vargas entrance to the southeast or the village of Cahuita entrance which is more northwest. There are well-maintained bathrooms and the entrance fee to either (since you're entering into the national park) is $5 USD per person in your party. From one entrance to the other is 5.2 miles so you can either go out back to bring your mileage total to about 10.5 (incline is negligible and shade is abundant but the heat can be punishing). If you decide to only go one way, you can take a taxi or public transportation back. Northbound buses pretty reliably run every half hour on Route 36, which you will need to walk out to from the southern entrance to catch (this is only another 0.1 miles down a dirt road out to 36, and you might not even make it that far because red taxis are often parked on the road waiting for people just like who did the one-way hike if you want to avoid the bus schedule altogether). If instead you went from the SE entrance to the NW entrance, there is a bus station a few blocks from the trail terminus along with an abundance of small restaurants and the like to keep you occupied while you wait. This last point may be the most important so pay attention closely. Roughly halfway through the trail is Punta Cahuita (the northernmost point on the trail that sticks out). At 2pm or some time thereabouts, 2 park workers will set off from this point, with 1 heading towards each entrance. You will not be allowed to pass them as they will inform you that the hiking trail is closed, meaning ***whatever side of Punta Cahuita you are on at 2pm is the side you have to finish on, you can NOT go back to the other side***. If you can do the entire hike this one is truly spectacular. The Puerto Vargas side is a mile of boardwalked path through dense forest followed by a long walk along the white sandy beach that offers excellent views of the bay. The Cahuita side follows a path along the rougher, rockier side of the beach before smoothing out into beaches of its own. The entire hike offers several opportunities to see wildlife and some helpful signage about the local flora and fauna. My advice is to start at Puerto Vargas before noon and end in Cahuita in time to get a late lunch/early dinner then hang around the beaches and pools until the sun starts to go down.

this was the hardest trail I have done but it was so worth it for the views and wildlife. it took me 11hrs to get to the top and 7 to get down. I split it in 2 days. we did it the first week of may which is officially rainy season in Costa Rica but the weather was beautiful both days I was on the mountain. the forecast changes minute by minute so dont let that deter you from doing it or over packing as we did.

Compléter l’aller retour en une journée, total 42km et 3000m de d+, nous somme parti le matin à 5:45am et retour en soirée juste avant la noirceur 18:00! Un beau 12h d’effort, nous avons marché rapidement 3.5km/h sans vraiment prendre de temps de repos. Il y a deux point ou on peut se ravitailler (eau/toilette/ nourriture/ liqueur), le premier à 7km et le deuxième à 14.5km. Il a fait très chaud n’oubliez pas crème solaire et casquette! Super sentier, très bien entretenu et de super vue!!

So...read my other review to Base Crestones. If you’ve made it that far, you have to go the rest of the way. It’s all a challenge but well worth it.

Not your normal CR adventure but well worth the effort. Think Kilimanjaro of Central America. You travel steeply through 5 microclimates, and it’s hard if you’re not a seasoned hiker. Views at the finale are spectacular. Most people base camp but I suppose you could do this in one day.

The trail description as "out and back" is a little misleading. If you start at the Cahuita entrance you can exit 8.1 km later at the Puerto Vargas exit. The Peurto Vargas exit is a 7 minute walk to the highway where you can catch a public bus or taxi back to Cahuita. We loved this flat, mostly shaded trail that follows the coastline. Saw lots of birds and animals, and there are great places for swimming along the trail. The last 2 km to Peurto Vargas are along a well-maintained boardwalk over wetlands and through the jungle.

Amazing trail! I advise you to start the trail a bit before 7am so you don’t have to pay. The guard arrives around 8am to check the entry.

Hike was boring, basically a dirt road. (1/5 stars) Waterfalls were amazing. We spent about 1.5hours swimming and hanging out. (5/5 stars) Make sure to get there early before it gets crowded.
