Cascada El Pavon

The unspoiled jungle of Southern Costa Rica contains some of the most pristine and incredible natural attraction, and the Cascada El Pavon is one of them. Cascada El Pavon in Ojochal is well known for the massive boulder stick right in the middle of the waterfall. People still don’t know how the rock got placed so perfectly between the waterfalls, but all they know is that it is absolutely fascinating. Looking for a photo op? This is just the place due to the character the rock provides to the waterfall!

Cascada El Pavon is a great place to come swim and cool off during a hot day in Costa Rica. You can swim in the pools or enjoy a nice picnic under the shade the jungle provides. It definitely is a must see.
