La Paz Waterfall Gardens-a must see place in Central Highlands

a small but beautiful waterfall at La Paz Waterfall GardensLa Paz Waterfall is the most famous waterfall in Costa Rica where visitors often stop on the road to take photos on their way to Sarapiqui or Arenal but the best waterfalls are actually above the La Paz waterfall along a steep canyon accessed by the safe hiking trails making the most easily accessible waterfalls in Costa Rica. The waterfall, a great excursion for those who don’t have weeks to comb the rainforest to see Costa Rica’s wildlife in its natural habitat, is located immediately alongside the road from Alajuela that leads to the northern plains of Costa Rica. The River La Paz forms the waterfall after traversing 8 kilometres (5 mi) of volcanic terrain, and then continues through the rainforest of the eastern side of Poás Volcano.

With over 3.5 kilometers of walking trails,you need a minimum of 2 hours reserved for your stay. However, as the gardens highlight butterflies, hummingbirds, snakes, frogs, and trout and there is also an orchid display and birding tours are offered, you will probably want to stay the whole day. Be sure to check out the traditional farmhouse on site and the great restaurant.
