Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula Sights

Llanos de Cortés

  • Body Of Water/Waterfall

Updated 04/14/2014

Fodor's Review

Just 3 km (2 mi) north of the Palo Verde road at Bagaces, take the dirt road signed for Llanos de Cortés to get to this hidden waterfall less than 2 km (1 mi) off the highway. About ½ km (¼ mi) along the dirt road you'll see on your right a large rock with "Cataratas" scrawled on it. Follow this bumpy road about 1.3 km (0.8 mi) to its end and then clamber down a steep path to the pool at the bottom of a spectacular, wide, 15- meter (50-foot) waterfall. This is a great

place for a picnic; avoid weekends if you can when it's often crowded and noisy. Don't leave anything of value in your car.
