From San JosÃ©, by car, approximately 2 hrs. One can take the road that leads to the PoÃ¡s Volcano, but, instead, one takes the road to the Waterfall Gardens. It is best to go early in the morning because heavy rain is possible in the afternoon.
The place is paradise on earth filled with butteflies, humming birds, waterfalls and a river. The food is also excellent.
