Waterfalls are abundant where the terrain in rolls high and low. The only other time we saw as many as Costa Rica is when we were in Switzerland. We enjoyed the sighting of numerous waterfalls while zooming by on our way somewhere else. It feels somewhat like an adult nature lover’s disneyworld in the way that where ever you look it is stimulating, awe inspiring and even a little heart stopping with the calm abundance of beauty. There is no such thing as a boring ride in Costa Rica. (if it does bore you, you chose the wrong vacation)
The magnificent waterfalls are not on the side of the road, but a destination, an attraction, and a spectacle worthy of the effort to get there. Verablanca waterfalls are in four parts. In 2009 a 6.3 earthquake occurred right there creating much repair work for the country. We were still able to get in close, get wet, and even stand right behind the main fall. I love the deafening sound of so much water moving. It seems to almost cleanse all the negative worries out of my mind and wash them away to the bottom of the river.
We visited in the rainy season. This means that every morning is beautiful and the day can be enjoyed, but after lunch in the middle afternoon expect it to rain. As soon as we arrived at the falls, the skies opened, and so did our umbrellas. I poked my camera through a ziploc bag and did my best to get some memories. I don’t mind the rain here. It’s not cold and it is not hot. It feels cleansing. I wasn’t bothered by the rain once. The best thing about visiting Costa Rica during the rainy season which begins in May, is that it’s the low time for tourists. We were never in crowds. That’s a bonus.
