Costa Rica is overcrowded by tourists. Everything is nicely set up for them. Even the prices. Costa Rica actually made it possible to provide access to their beautiful nature for each and everyone. Also for the ones that do not like to walk. Ecology and conservation are highly valued in Costa Rica. And so that everyone can admire it, they build big road up to the sights like the volcanoes. Then they charge high entrance fees for nature conservation (I guess the most part of the money though goes to cover their investments). Costa Ricans are just so happy that thousands of visitors come to marvel over their unspoiled nature. For sure, this is one of the best ways to sustain the nature.

The mud-road winds down to the waterfall another 30 minutes or so. Be careful and do not slip. Most probably your shoes will get stuck in the mud at some point. Best is to walk barefooted. Once the waterfall is reach you will be amazed how beautiful nature can be. And most likely you have it all on your own. You can climb behind the waterfall, swim to the sunny spots on the rocks or just enjoy true nature. Do you dare to jump from the top of the waterfall?
