About the BriBri Waterfalls

  • Volio Waterfall
  • The Two Waters Waterfall
  • Bribri Hidden Waterfalls, also called Catarata Ma-Cu – BriBri Sparkling Waterfalls.

During this tour, we visit the three best Bribri waterfalls. The Volio Waterfall, a magnificent 15-meter-high cascade, is nestled within the Bribri Indian Reservation. It allows you to meet abundant wildlife and immerse yourself in the splendour of the natural world.
