It is located in Alajuela province and it is an impressive act of nature with 200 feet/ 70 m of total height. If you don’t mind its chilling water, you can dive in the pool below the fall. We forgot our swimsuits but I don’t think we would plunge in with Chloe-Sofia at this age. It had to be really refreshing though as everyone who came out was telling us to jump in.

If you have a toddler, I recommend taking a carrier with you. You’ll climb down many stairs to reach the waterfall so you’d better forget about taking stroller. The hike is steep and going back is physically challenging. I found it quite hard but luckily Chloe-Sofia enjoys being carried. The only thing that bothered her was the heat. Once we undressed her and put her in only in her diaper, she started to have fun.

I brought with us a travel size sunscreen to cover her hands and legs that were sticking out. She does not like wearing a hat but as you hike in the forest, we were covered by the trees. When we were somewhere more exposed, like on the beach, I wore a large brim straw hat to keep her covered. Even if Alex thinks that I am too serious about it, it is better to be safe than sorry. Not to mention that he burnt his back on the beach, not me or Chloe-Sofia.

Besides bringing proper hiking clothes and swimsuit, I would recommend not to look around much. The forest is full of snakes and other creatures that I prefer not to see. I am true Ophidiophobic – I can’t even see a picture of snake without feeling sick. Meeting a real snake is definitely not on my bucket list. Do you have some animal phobia as well?

    I was really looking forward to finally getting to reading your blog on this Miri. The little Chloe-Sofia looks so snuggled and cute in her sling. I’m sure carrying her would have made the hike even more of a workout. Good idea with the hat to keep her covered. Babies have such delicate skin and you would never want to risk sunburn. OMG with you on the snakes! They scare me to no end, along with spiders and any other creepy crawlies!

    Oh wow. How beautiful! And you all look like you really enjoyed the hike! Ha – and my husband is the same way about sun protection. But curiously, he is always getting burnt…and I very rarely have an issue. Hmm. Haha.

    Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!
