What To Expect

La Leona Waterfall
Let us know if you need transportation and we can quote you the service with a local driver from town.

We have a private parking lot at our office in Curubande where you can leave your car safe while we do the hike.

Our day starts at 8:45 AM / 10:45 AM and 12:45 PM by meeting in our office located 20 min north from Liberia downtown through the small villages of Colorado and Curubande.

From Curubande we will take a 4WD for 1 km that will take us to the entrance of the waterfall trail and here is where the hike begins.

The waterfall is well hidden away on the outskirts of Rincon de la Vieja Volcano . The trail is 1.7 Miles (2.7 Kilometers) singletrack so together it is 6 km. There are some climbing to do in elevation and some caves to go across. Later to reach the waterfall we would have to swim 25 meters. Once we finish with La Leona Waterfall we will serve you fruits and icecream together with a fresh fruit juice.

Our guides Aaron & Alex were very helpful and made sure we were safe. We LOVED this hike! It was our favorite adventure here and felt like this is exactly what Costa Rica should be!
Definitely must do!

This hike was so much fun, right from the ride in the back of a truck up and down steep hills to the hike with stops to see bats and paint with natural minerals. My husband even did some cliff jumping. The rain we had just added to the jungle experience. The water was not the beautiful bue do to the rain, however our guide still got some great photos that showcases this beautiful country.
Not to be missed

We absolutely loved this experience! The hike and waterfall were beautiful, I’m so glad we did it. The hike was legit and a bit challenging for my 7 year old at times but our guide, Daniel, was there to save the day! He was AMAZING! His knowledge and experience left me feeling comfortable knowing my son was safe.

My only recommendation is that they provide a little more information in the listing regarding what you should bring. Water shoes I would say is a must. Also know that you can’t bring anything besides your phone on the trip. They provide a water bag to store it in along with waters. We would definitely do this activity again!!!!
