San Luis Waterfall
This 100-meter waterfall is settled deep within the rainforest in an area surrounding Santa Elena. It requires somewhat of a trek to get to, but really, that’s half the fun. The hike in winds along rivers and through rainforests, and takes approximately 3 hours. Have your camera ready and your hiking shoes laced tight, as the trail can be a bit muddy and slippery in places. But it’s all so scenic and beautiful that it hardly matters. If you’re unable to walk or would simply rather not, horseback rides can be arranged, as can taxis to the San Luis Research station, which is only a 45-minute hike from the waterfalls. The research station – which is run by the University of Georgia – also serves hearty lunches during the noon hour, should you get hungry.
