Completed the cascada San Ramon waterfall hike yesterday as a group of 3.

Logistically this begins from the small town of San Ramon. To get there you will need your own set of wheels - there is no obvious public transport connection. Be aware the road from maybe around Santa Ana to San Ramon is all dirt. We had a ATV and scooter and we both managed to get there without incident though.

Entrance is 100 Córdoba or 3USD.

The trail is 7.2km with a 594m elevation gain if you depart from the entrance. You CAN go the first 2-3km on an ATV but looking at the path it’s pretty rough (particularly between the 400-800m part) so we elected to walk rather than risk damage to our rented ATV.

I would rate the trek as moderate. It starts along a rocky road then narrows as you go up. You follow the path along the stream for some distance until you reach a fork in the stream. At this point you go RIGHT and have to actually rock hop up to the waterfall. There should be some yellow tape to mark the way.

The waterfall itself is impressive but the pool at the bottom is small and barely knee deep. Enough to get yourself wet after a sweaty hike.

Only obstacles were a few bees at the end and a fairly aggressive but malnourished dog that followed us. We did see a small coral snake along the way as well.

Overall a good day but be prepared to hike with appropriate supplies - water and hiking shoes.

Beautiful vertical falls at the end of a pretty ~50min ~2km hike. Sit for a bit and splash under the falls before you turn around. Truly stunning, even in summer when the water is low.

We took an ATV up the extremely bumpy road for the first 2km, it’s about 4km up total if you don’t have sturdy wheels to get you half way there.

Extremely beautiful hike. We were able to drive our 4WD about 1 mile up the volcano, and we hiked the rest. Saw and heard two kinds of monkeys. Only bad thing is that we didn’t reach the falls. We didn’t make any obvious errors but after going for 1.5 hours, the path seemed to end without any clear path to proceed.

Even if you have seen a lot of waterfalls, this one is exceptional. The heat of a hike up makes the fresh, cold water more rewarding. Entrance is 100 córdobas.

Drove past the exit 3 time's as the signage isn't great. Once we found it we were very happy we didn't hike the whole way. The first part of the hike looked long and boring. We rented a quad and then hiked the rest. The was wasn't difficult, but it also wasn't easy. Take good shoes with you, and water. We stopped lots along the way and took our time to hangout in nature. The waterfall was beautiful and a lot bigger than I thought. You can take a quick dip, which I recommend. Bring a towel and snacks and enjoy.

100 cordobes to enter - park at the ticket office and walk along the farm, up through the forest and eventually through the thicker forested area. Monkeys and Morpho butterflies along the way. Ditch your car/bike and walk it from the start!

We rented an ATV from our kayak tour operator for 25 dollars.This ATV gave us a spectaculair 15 min ride to the mini parking spot up the hill. Saves you an 1-1,5 hour hike so I would recommend doing this! From there we walked 45 minutes up, it was a challenge, but beautifull! Nature was amazing, we saw howler and the capucin monkeys! The waterfall was also stunning. Dont expect it to be huge but definetely worth it :)

The cost is 100 cordobas to enter the site. You can leave bikes at the entrance safely because there is someone there to watch them. The hike is 3 - 4 km long. The first part is a rough road and the last part is trail. At the end, you have to scramble up a fairly steep, rough trail. If you have an atv or motorcycle, you can drive up about half way. There are lots of monkeys along the way if you look and listen for them. The waterfall itself is really high and has a refreshing pool at the bottom. In dry season, there is only a trickle coming over.

To get to the waterfall, you drive to San Ramon and then have to take a trail another three km. You can take a scooter half way up the trail or rent horses. The first half is like a rough road and the second half is a forest trail. At the end it is a bit steep and there are places where you are scrambling over rocks. The waterfall is spectacular with a little pool at the bottom which is refreshingly cool. There are lots of congo and white faced monkeys along the way.

We were there in rainy season and heard it's not great in dry season.

You don't need a guide.

From the main entrance it is around 4km to the waterfall. If you have a scooter you could park at the comedor. If you have a motorbike you can ride to a large tree before a steep incline. If you are a confident rider or have an ATV you can ride to the higher parking spot.

The hike is nice and the waterfall is fresh so you can cook off in it. Although it's not very deep.
