Tenorio Volcano National Park, Alajuela Reviews

  • This is an incredible place! The hike from the Park entrance to the famous waterfall is about 1 h 30 minutes. It is considered easy/moderate. Bring hiking shoes, snacks, water and bug repellent. This is truly a magical, wild destination. Once there don’t rush. Take your time to look, feel, absorb and appreciate the beauty of Mother Nature. The blue colour is a gift and the energy is completely pure.

  • Great hike. Lots of things to see. Stunning waterfall with blue water. Not crowded. There is a very long stairway to get to the bottom of the waterfall and then back up. Be prepared.

  • We loved our guide Jonathon who shared his passion for this park. This isn't a well traveled area, but the Rio Celeste is definitely worth a visit. We enjoyed the 2.5 hour hike which was fairly challenging even when it's not too muddy. I think more locals are staring to check out this area and soon it will become more popular.

  • We booked an excursion through Conchal Fun and Diego was our guide. This place is amazing on its own but Diego made it even more so. The hike is short but worth the trip!

  • Let's see, how do I put this? Amazingly spectacular, surprisingly stunning beauty, seemingly surreal or magical. This park is really worth the entrance and the walk in. Just a couple of warnings: no bathrooms or water once inside so go before you go and bring a full water bottle. Also the walk is pretty rigorous and steep in places as you near the falls, so be prepared.
