San Ramon Waterfall
From Finca Mystica you can hike to the impressive 90 meter dropping waterfall of San Ramon. This is a moderate 3-5 hour hike from our hotel. Good sneakers or hiking shoes are highly recommended for this hike. The last kilometer can be a bit rocky, but when you reach the waterfall you will be happy to feel the cool mist blowing from the falls, or take a dip if you would like. If you are not up for the full hike, many of our guest enjoy riding horses from our place up to the last kilometer, from there you hike the rest of the way. It takes about 3-4 hours on horses roundtrip from our lodge.
Thier is a $3 entrance fee to get into the waterfall at the entrance gate.
