Traveling and visiting sights in Costa Rica comes at a price. Sure, the landscapes and biodiversity are impressive but more often than not, you will find someone collecting an entrance fee, parking fee or whatever kind of fee for you to check out a waterfall, swimming hole or hike.
Returning from Ricon de la Vieja, which park was closed temporarily due to water problems and which popular hiking trails have been closed for years due to volcanic activity, we found this picturesque canyon. Exploring its waters, jumping from its rocks and observing colourful birds and hidden petroglyphs, this is a perfect place to spend a few hours away from the tourist traps and enjoy the beauty of nature.
