Hosts were super accommodating. They made us dinner when we got in a little later, were extremely helpful and friendly, and you can't beat the view of the waterfall! The hike down is pretty easy and the food was wonderful-- try the homemade hot sauce. :) Perfect rustic hide-away.

When we went, it was raining, so the lodge looked close and there was no one else there. We paid the entrance fee and hiked down, which was quick (25 mins) and easy if you are in shape (tough if you don't exercise). The falls are impressive from a lot of different angles. It is just unexpected from the entrance... More

Out of the way waterfall in volcanic crater with grounds of birds and flowers (saw toucans, hummingbirds etc.) Impressive waterfall and hike to bottom. Romantic restaurant. Rooms are sparse, but OK. Best of Costa Rica attraction.

The southerly approach to Bajos del Toros is challenging to say the least. Although the roads were paved, they were the narrowest, steepest, most tortuous we saw in Costa Rica. There was one point after a hairpin turn that the hill was so steep I did not think our rental Daihatsu Trios was going to make it. In early 2017... More

My wife and I consider ourselves waterfall chasers. And Del Toro is one of the most impressive we've ever seen! The hike is not as bad as you imagine it will be. Just take a break once in awhile and your back at the top before you know it. It was easy to find and lunch was great.. And there... More

We were staying at the nearby El Silencio. The walk down to the waterfall is mainly by steps put in by the owners family a few years back. A fantastic achievement. Although steep, the climb is not difficult and the view is spectacular: not to be missed.On the way back don't miss the garden loop, more great views, birds and... More

This is a waterfall worth seeing. It's place in the canyon makes it spectacular to view from the top or from the bottom. The hike down and back up is rather intense. But if you take it slow, it's not a big deal. On a rainy day, it might be challenging as the mud is slick. We lucked out to... More

You need to go to this location and descend to the base of the waterfall, it is astonishing and unique. The ascent is a little bit demanding, around 30-40 minutes, but the experience is nice. Also the paths are well maintained, not excellent, but good enough considering the wet conditions of the area. Finally, consider they close on Sunday, the... More

The aerial view of Cataratas del Toro is so wonderful that angels must have gazed down on it in flight.

Roads from Zarcero or from Sarapiqui are in better conditions. From Alajuela I only recommend a good engine car because of the hills. Everybody could admire the waterfall from above, just a 5 minutes walk and it worthy. If you have a very good condition, do down, its amazing!!! Just remember that then you have to go up 350 steps...
