Waterfall Trail

Visit our very own beautiful and majestic 65 foot waterfall, which also provides us with 100% clean electricity at the lodge! Located 500 meters from the hotel, the trail takes you deep into the cloud forest where the most attentive hikers can catch a glimpse of the Resplendent Quetzal, a Capuchin monkey or a relaxing three-toed Sloth.

Once at the waterfall, take a swim in the natural plunge pool or relax at the water’s edge immersed in nature.

The trail is of moderate difficulty and normally takes guests about 1 hour to complete.

Access is free to guests of the lodge, non-guests can access the trail for a $10 fee.

(price includes a complimentary drink at the restaurant! )
