Llanos de Cortez Waterfall, Area de Conservacion Guanacaste

4.5
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Area de Conservacion Guanacaste
Revel in a hidden gem at Llanos de Cortez Waterfall--a rushing cascade measuring 12m (35 ft) high and 15m (50 ft) wide. Park in the lot nearby and hike along the short dirt path to the fall. The area generally remains uncrowded, making it a perfect escape from tourists. Picnic by the waterfall, swim, sunbathe, or venture behind the curtain of water to escape the dry Guanacaste heat. Put Llanos de Cortez Waterfall into our Area de Conservacion Guanacaste day trip app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
