“Run along the Savegre River to two beautiful, thundering waterfalls; the first in a cave, the second 30 meters high.”— Bren B
Swimming in the Savegre Falls can be fatal; there are underwater currents, and it is not recommended. Rocks are very slippery.
Beware of diverging paths if you take the upper trail; try to stay along the river, to the right. Signage is sparse, worn, and sometimes misleading.
The trail is accommodated by rusty stairways and rope guides which are in severe disrepair, but which make the descent and ascent to the falls simpler. There are also two footbridges that cross the river.
The trail is on the border of the Los Quetzales Parque Nacional, in the Reserva Forestal Los Santos.
