The trails aren't very difficult to navigate in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. The paths are well-maintained and easy to follow. Our guide gave us the choice of resting, or going another half mile to the falls. The falls were lovely, though, we saw them...More
Terraced cataract in the preserve. Walking paths are generally well maintained in the immediate area so an easy walk (reserve still recovering in some areas from Hurricane Nate's rainfall). Well worth the modest additional exertion
The water was so refreshing and our guide to get there was professional and accurate. They views and scenery to get there are just stunning. Would definitely recommend. Take a water camera and explore & have fun.
This was another trip up into the mountains. The road is rough but once you start your trek to see the waterfalls, the ride is forgotten. Our tour guide made sure we saw all there was to see. He found us a small viper, and...More
and not too far off the beaten track in the forest...the walk was not difficult and the view was spectacular, even when it is muddy and rain is falling (after all you are in a rain forest). if you are a waterfall buff, this is...More

The Place has been closed due to previous tragic accidents. You may see the waterfall from two different places in Monteverde, on the main steep road to San Luis that is a bit risky and from the Observation Deck at Ficus... More
The Place has been closed due to previous tragic accidents. You may see the waterfall from two different places in Monteverde, on the main steep road to San Luis that is a bit risky and from the Observation Deck at Ficus Trails.
The San Luis waterfall belongs to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Preserve and you can't access the waterfall from the preserve so a family who owns land on the bottom part of the fall has charged visitors for many years so people would walk on a trail that goes mainly on the river bed and that's why it is dangerous. San Luis is located at 700 meters above see level and the preserve at 1500 at the entrance so it is a big drop and you kind of have to walk through a canyon and there's no place to run if there's rock slides and San Luis is on top of a fault line as well that comes from the Preserve.
So, enjoy it from the distance, better safe than sorry. Besides, the Observation Deck at Ficus Trails has an overwhelming view from the top of the Continental Divide all the way down to San Luis and the Ocean and the islands from the Pacific coast.
