(NO HANDYCAP RAMP) Uhhh it seems like a lot more but hahaha its A LOT!! And they can be kind of slippery so just be aware of that.
This is the famous La Fortuna Waterfall, and um if you guys come during the rainy season or its raining a lot theres a second waterfall over here to the side that looks really good. Well show you pictures of that was well.
Now were going to meet you back up. Now if youre not in shape like I am you might have problems going up and you might need to rest a bit. Me, I use this as an exercise workout.
I think ummm almost half way up theres a bench area where you can rest if you need to other then that youre gunna just have to stand on the side and rest But, me Ill meet you guys up there see you in a few okay?!
I didnt think coming up was too bad!… yeah right!!, anyways I hope you guys enjoyed the La Fortuna Waterfall guys you definitely want to check it out if youre in the area Im Michael alan and Im DAngelo for www.TravelCostaRicaNow.com hope it helps.. Peace!!!
Hey guys, quick tip theres two souvenir shops here one outside (by the parking lot) and one inside. The one inside is a little bit bigger and has more stuff here, so if youre looking for souvenirs and youre in the area, and youre up here this one (inside the park) might be better than the one outside in the parking lot. Just a quick tip Peace!!!
