The Catarata del Toro (Toro Waterfall) is located in a private reserve placed between the Poas Volcano and Juan Castro Blanco National Park. There, you could admire the highest waterfall of Costa Rica (295 feet) that falls into the crater of a dormant volcano. If the weather conditions are good enough, the adrenaline rush lovers will surely want to practice rappel in it.

Besides, there you can enjoy the views from the different scenic views strategically situated in places where the best panoramic views of the country can be admired.

A series of paths will lead you to the area’s most beautiful hideouts. There is a path that leads to the foot of the cataract, where you can enjoy the colors formed by the water when it hits the rocks due to its chemical composition. Another path goes deep into the cloud forest, which is inhabited by lush plants and trees and wild fauna.
