La Paz Waterfall Gardens Tours

star-4.5
109 Reviews
La Paz Waterfall Gardens
This popular jungle oasis is the number one ecological attraction in Costa Rica. With incredible hiking that’s easily accessible from the capital city, as well as stunning waterfalls and indigenous wildlife, it’s a destination that’s truly worthy of a visit. 

Travelers can explore the 3.5 kilometers of rugged trails and 10 animal exhibits on site to gain a deeper appreciation of Costa Rica’s famed biodiversity and natural beauty. Whether it’s hiking to the five waterfalls that give this garden its name, wandering through the cloud forest or venturing into the aviary, there’s plenty to do, see and discover at La Paz Waterfall Gardens. 

The grounds are easy to navigate, and most visitors choose to self-guide their tours. But travelers looking to gain a deeper understanding of conservation efforts, as well as to learn more about the unique flora and fauna here can also opt for a guided tour.

Practical Info

The gardens are open daily from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Entrance is $40 for adults and $24 for children three to 12. Add-on experiences are available for an additional fee, including a guided animal encounter and a waterfall gardens tour.
Address: 126, Costa Rica
Hours: Open daily 8am-5pm
Admission: Adults: $40; Children: $24
