Llano de Cortes Waterfall & Liberia Shopping




The secluded Llanos de Cortez Waterfall  spans 35ft high and 50 ft wide and cascades into a white sand pond. It is only a 1 hr drive from most of the Playa Hermosa, Coco, Ocotal and Playa Panama resorts.   The falls drops into a freshwater pond rimmed by a gold-flecked, white sand beach and rich tropical vegetation. There, you can sunbathe, swim, drift over to stand directly under the falls, or climb onto the rocks and tuck in behind it. The tumbling water keeps the air cool and fresh, making it the perfect escape from the Guanacaste heat. Although Llanos de CortÚs is well known to locals, the waterfall has never been part of established tours for visitors. So if you go, it is possible to enjoy this getaway in utter seclusion.

Lunch time!  We are now off to Liberia for a typical Costa Rican meal and some shopping if you wish.
