Catarata Manantial de Agua Viva
Located in Bijagual, the waterfall known as Manantial de Agua Viva is an impressive site to hold. Cascading for more than 600 feet before crashing into a series of swimming holes. It is one of the tallest waterfalls in Costa Rica and a close rival to Diamante Falls found in Costa Ballena. To get to Catarata Manantial de Agua Viva, you need to drive 8 miles south of Tarcoles bridge and take a left towards Villas Lapas Hotel. Travel 3 miles up the dirt road and you will see a sign that says 'Cascada.' Park your car there and take the well marked trail uphill for about an hour and you will be rewarded with an awesome site and a cool swim. The waterfall is broken into 3 distinct sections with the tallest one being about 300 feet. This waterfall is not well known by tourists so it is rare to find other people there.
