The fall can be arrived at by foot or on horseback. The trail runs through pasture and rainforest, offering up chances to spot toucans, monkeys, and other tropical creatures. It takes about 15 minutes to hike down the stair set to the waterfall and an hour to arrive by horse. For more information on visiting the waterfall by horseback, please visit our page on the Horseback Ride to the La Fortuna Waterfall.
A local non-profit association administers the waterfall. The entrance fee is $8, with all proceeds being reinvested into local conservation efforts.
Please see the La Fortuna map to find the waterfall’s precise location.
