Every Step Is Picture Perfect El Tigre Waterfalls

Monteverde is the 3rd region we’ve visited during our vacation. This was hands down, our family favorite activity. The hike was beautiful and it had the perfect amount of hike and walk. Not exhausting but you get a session good enough that you don’t feel guilty about the incredible lunch they’ll present at the end. I’m honestly surprised this is priced as low as it is, I can easily see it at twice the price.

A Great Few Hours El Tigre Waterfalls

This is a combo of a hike, waterfall views, horseback ride, and local lunch. The hike itself wasn’t particularly taxing as most of it is downhill, as long as you choose to take the horses or 4x4 back up the hill. While not the ‘coolest thing’ we did in Costa Rica, it was a very enjoyable way for us to spend a few hours, and felt like a good value for all that was included.

Excellent Hike! El Tigre Waterfalls

Great hike through a lush, beautiful forest. Steeply down at first, then along a river, and past several striking waterfalls. You cross the river repeatedly on casual-looking but sturdy bridges, some a bit high, so not a good choice for someone who is afraid of heights. I suggest you accept the option to ride a horse the final bit of the trail, it is a steep and less interesting part of the route. The lunch at the end was excellent and plentiful, and the staff very friendly.

You Will Love This El Tigre Waterfalls

This is a must do if you are in good physical condition. The trail is about 8 km. It is well marked and slightly rugged. My daughter and I hiked it in closed toe water/trail shoes and my husband wore hiking boots. There are some small areas where shoes get wet and a lot of optional places to get wet. There are 4 large waterfalls, numerous small waterfalls and hanging bridges.

Amazing Experience El Tigre Waterfalls

We went last weekend on a trip to Monteverde and this is a must if you are visiting this beautiful place. If you like to walk and want to have a great experience with nature, water, and some mud this is a great tour, is not a heavy one. They offered the option "All-Inclusive" tour with lunch and you can return ridding a horse or in a 4x4, we choose to return in 4x4.
