Visited in Nov 2018. Great day out. Lots of animals to see although the big cat sanctuary was a bit sad. They are all rescues so they cannot be released into the wild but many seemed distressed and the enclosures were quite small. Birds and...More

Some of the largest waterfalls to be seen in Costa Rica. You can get up close and personal with them, with several viewpoints allowing for amazing shots. Included is the wildlife reserve which is definitely worth a visit. Toucans, sloths, butterflies, big cats, and much...More

What's not to love about La Paz. 5 breathtaking waterfalls and beautiful and safe trails. I suggest you start with the animals and exhibits, eat lunch at their amazing buffet and then take your time to enjoy the waterfalls.

The shuttle is typically used when you walk all the way to the waterfall trail. If you only stayed in the area you will need to walk back to the stairs

There are ramps where the animals are located but not for the waterfalls. Only steps to see the waterfalls.
