About
Discovering Cortes Falls is a bit like entering paradise. Covering an area around 15 meters high by 15 meters wide, the waterfall is considered among the most spectacular in Costa Rica. You’ll get to go behind the water curtain that separates the falls from a wonderful sandy beach and mini-cavern. In addition, you can climb the waterfall mountain to observe the site from the top of the falls. This spectacular place is often visited by howler monkeys and white face monkeys.

What to expect
  • Start the day with 9am pickup at your hotel (selected hotels only), then begin the 1-hour trip to Cortes Falls, passing a trio of Guanacaste volcanoes along the way: spot Rincon de la Vieja, Miravalles, and Tenorio. Upon arrival at Cortes Falls, you’ll descend a short, steep trail to the waterfall, where you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the peaceful spot. Swim in the clear pool at the base of the waterfall, and scramble on rocks behind the lacy, 49-foot (15-meter) wide curtain of water. Stretch out on the white, sandy beach, and soak up the sun, listening for the tropical birds and other wildlife that thrive in the surrounding forest. At the end of your time at the waterfall, dry off and visit a nearby restaurant for an included lunch, then begin the return trip to Playa del Coco. This 5-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Unforgettable tour!
Jan 2021 • Couples
This tour was unforgettable. Our guide, Pepito, was really cool, showing us all the best places for pictures, and stopping at points of interest along the way. He clearly knows and loves Costa Rica a lot! For lunch he took us to a local soda that he likes. The food was amazing! The waterfall was beautiful, we had so much fun!

Beautiful area to visit
Aug 2018 • Couples
We just completed our trip to the falls. We had a wonderful time. Our guide was exceptional at explaining the local area to and from the falls. The waterfalls is surrounded by natural beauty and the water is exceptional clear and refreshing. We did even have a howler monkey as a visitor. The stop at the local stand for lunch was a wonderful first time experience for my wife and myself. It is nice to experience something you cannot experience where we live. Great job Costours

Thank you amigos for your precious comments. Indeed Cortes Waterfalls are wonderful. Brings us directly in the heart of Paradise. A must when visiting Costa Rica. It was great having you with us and we hope to see you again soon here in Guanacaste. Pura Vida!

Great swimming!
Jun 2018
We were lucky enough to visit this with Costa Rica Unique Tours on a day in which the water was absolutely perfect for swimming. Others had told us that during the rainy season sometimes it is too dangerous to swim there.

It were a few other people there, but it wasn't all that crowded. I think there is a huge advantage to traveling to Costa Rica during the low tourist season!

beautiful spot to relax
Mar 2018
Had a lovely drive to the falls from Playa de Coco and had a swim to relax, when we arrived. The falls weren't to crowded in the morning when we were there, but I have head it can be busy. A bit of a walk down and back up to falls, but the well maintained cement steps made it easy to do. A definite to see if in the area.

Wow
Jan 2018 • Couples
O my gosh- The waterfall was amazing but out tour guide Eve made it even better. He truly loves what he does. Offered so much information about the country and pointed out things to us on our drive- monkey's, volcano's, mango trees etc. It was a wonderful learning experience. He also took us to a Soda on the way home- we got to experience local food- so fresh. Book all your trips through Costours- just let them know what you want to do and Eve will more than meet your expectations . Also- there was a long rocky walk to the waterfalls so wear good walking shoes.
