Family trips to the beach are always so much fun! Sunny days, sandy castles and salty pranks create the best memories! But why not try something a bit more adventurous for a change? Next time that you plan a trip to the beach, set aside a day for a fun exploration day at the wonderful Pozo Azul waterfalls!
Located in Dominicalito, about a 3-4 hour drive from San Jose and 2 hours from Jaco; the Pozo Azul waterfalls are a great way to inject some excitement into your holidays! This family-friendly spot is not only easy to access as it is close to all major beaches in Puntarenas, but it is also quite convenient when it comes to budget.
Getting to Pozo Azul is quite easy, however, do keep in mind that a 4×4 vehicle is recommended, especially during the rainy season. Parking is available, however, If you prefer to get there by joining a tour, you are welcome to do so too!
Pozo Azul waterfalls are said to have the same majestic feeling as the Nauyaca waterfalls but at a smaller size. Even the hike is much easier and quicker, which is best if you travel with smaller children.
It will only take you about a 5-minute walk from the parking lot to the actual waterfall, but once you get here you will be amazed by its natural beauty! Pozo Azul offers its visitors deliciously fresh crystalline waters that will make you want to jump right in! Both children and adults can enjoy chilling in the waterfall’s great swimming hole or even go crazy swinging off the pendant rope.
Keep a close eye on the nearby trees as you will usually find that the area is famous for its curious monkeys and sloths. If you are lucky enough, you’ll get to see these amazing tropical animals!
Snacks and refreshments are always welcome at the Pozo Azul waterfall, especially if you are planning to spend the day. However, do make sure you clean after yourselves once you are ready to leave.
