This 2 km long hike down a ravine to the river let's us see 8 different waterfalls. The trail is steep, and at one point we'll have to go down a 3 story high spiral staircase. (this may perhaps be the only place where you'll find a steel spiral staircase in the midst of the jungle) Another highlight of the hike is a hanging bridge just in front of one of the waterfalls.

We'll meet in front of the Casino Fiesta by the airport in Alajuela.
Then it's a beautiful drive up towards the Poas Volcano, passing coffee and strawberry plantations. We'll veer off towards Vara Blanca, pass by the Catarata de la paz and we'll stop for breakfast near Chinchona.

The driving time from Alajuela is about 2 hours, and the idea is to carpool. I can take 3 people in my car.
