Llanos de Cortez Waterfall is a secret gem that’s mostly Ticos. It’s about 30 minutes from Liberia Airport and 1 hour from Playa del Coco, Costa Rica – an easy day trip. Did I mention it’s FREE? A small donation to a local school ($2) and $5 parking opens up a day of exploring at this beauty. You can enjoy swimming in the water, a waterfall massage, or jumping from the rocks underneath, but I would suggest hiking to the top – the view is so worth it! We took the longer way down and stumbled upon a few swimming holes as well.

TIP: Wear water shoes! All throughout the area is very slippery… I slipped on the rocks and half of my toenail was ripped off =x We all got lots of cuts and bruises as we were barefoot.

Enjoy some of my favorite moments in the video above!
