spend a day surrounded by the natural wonders of the tropical forest in the gardens of the La Paz waterfall. Walk along a paved path to a thunderous waterfall, admire the flora and fauna of the place and observe a variety of colorful tropical birds and exotic animal species up close. Meet your guide in the lobby of your hotel, get on your transfer vehicle and head to the gardens of the La Paz waterfall. Visit ten animal exhibitions to see fascinating creatures, such as butterflies, monkeys, toads, snakes, exotic birds and even felines from the jungle that roam the place. Take a moderate-intensity hike to the gardens of the La Paz waterfall, an exuberant green space where biodiversity is very present. Walk the paved trail of 3 kilometers (1.8 mi), which will take you to the base of the La Paz waterfall. This ecological park, with a height that varies between 1,200 and 1,500 meters (4,000 to 5,000 ft), is home to a wide variety of wildlife and plant species. Make a stop at the aviary and admire this birdwatchers' paradise. Many species take refuge in this fascinating reserve, such as colorful toucans, wild turkeys, macao macaws, finches and honeycreepers. Walk surrounded by more than 4,000 butterflies that fly in the butterfly garden and learn about the different stages of its development. The La Paz waterfall is a perfect and relaxing destination for the whole family, full of opportunities to take photographs worthy of a postcard of the fantastic natural beauty of Costa Rica.

Traveler Reviews

We only got 1 day free to explore San Jose. We chose this Wildlife Refuge and waterfalls to get a little taste of the Costa Rican wildlife and nature. The Refuge is incredibly well design, kept, and harmonized with nature. The falls were beautiful and there were several trails to see them from all angles. My husband and I were extremely satisfied. It is also great for photographers, and my husband happens to be one.
