It is a very nice waterfall and a well maintained path down to the viewing point, but 14$ is ridiculous! I think last year it was 10$, according to previous posts, and in my opinion a 40% raise can be hardly justified, except with greed!...More

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...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...More
