How to get from Liberia to La Leona Waterfall?

To be honest there aren’t many options to get from Liberia to La Leona Waterfall, it’s either: You drive with your own car, arrange transportation with us directly or take the bus (the bus has only 2 schedules and that’s why it is not very reliable to depend on it) here are your options:

By bus:

La Leona Waterfall is located in the small town of “Curubandé”, 20min outside of Liberia downtown. The Comapany that provides this bus service is called “TRANSBASA”

The bus leaves from the “Terminal de Buses Municipal de Liberia”  

La Leona Waterfall Liberia

Now, the issue with the bus is that there are only two schedules: bus schedule la leona waterfall liberia

*Sale Liberia (Leaves Liberia)

*Sale Curubandé (Leaves Curubandé)

The times marked in red color means that the schedule only applies on week days, meaning that those times won’t be available on the weekends

As you see, the issue with the bus schedule is that it doesn’t give you many options to choose and you would have to either take the bus and wait in Curubandé but on the way back you might have to pay for a taxi in order to get back to Liberia because the last bus leaves from Curubandé to Liberia at 1:15pm.

By Taxi (Private Transportation)

Depending on how many people you have in your party you can choose to arrange a private car to do this service for you. Here with us we are able to send you a quote for round trip transportation from Liberia to La Leona Waterfall and back to Liberia.

La Leona Waterfall Excursion Our guide Ian went above and beyond in terms of knowledge, safety, kindness, and patience. We had an absolutely amazing adventure with him leading us across the Rio Blanco, up rocky trails, through cavernous spaces and finally to the falls. We dove under the falls and jumped into the pools of an indescribable blue. Ian pointed out all types of flora and fauna along the way, educating us about this bountiful country. We will come back again and again and specifically use this tour company and hopefully Ian.

Don't miss the La Leone Adventure Hike! I cannot recommend this guided hike enough. La Leone waterfall is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and our private guide from this company was just wonderful. He really went above and beyond to give us an amazing adventure. It was so much more than I even expected when I booked the hike. I loved that booking private allowed us to go at a much earlier time and so the trail was much less crowded. On our way out I noticed bigger groups coming through and I'm glad we'd been there early to enjoy a bit more solitude. We saw beautiful blue Morpho butterflies, bats, caves, waterfalls and the most gorgeous blue water. It was my favorite activity of our trip (and we did alot!)

Incredible Family Experience! We just had the most incredible day at La Leona Falls! Our family of 4, including 2 teens, spent the whole day there. Our enthusiastic, experienced and friendly tour guide Randall was the best!! First we hiked to the waterfall, which was challenging walking through rushing water, but such a great adventure. Then we were driven to Canon de la Viejo Lodge where we did the zip lining on 8 stations. Amazing views flying over the jungle and river! Our favorite next was tubing down the river. The ride was so fun because it included moderate rapids! We then had a nice lunch at the lovely restaurant on property. Our last activity was going to the hot springs which is located on a beautiful spot next to the river. There we were slathered in warm volcanic mud, rinsed off in the river and outdoor showers, and then relaxed in the 3 separate pools, each with different temps. This tour is well worth the trip if you are near Liberia. Fun was had by all!

Amazing hike and waterfall Such an amazing and cool experience. We paid for the private tour and it was well worth it. From the hike to the cliff jumping to the waterfall itself, it was all so cool and amazing. Our tour guide John was super knowledgeable about the area, plants and trail. Made for such an amazing excursion. It was probably the best thing we did on our trip and highly recommend it!

Amazing Waterfall Tour with Outstanding Guides This was an experience of a lifetime for our party of 8, 4 adults and 4 teens. We are so glad we found La Leona Waterfall Adventure Tour. Our guides Jeremy and John were both wonderful. Ask for them!! They kept us entertained the whole time and you could tell how much they loved sharing this beautiful place with us, It was truly unbelievable. There were not many people on the trails to and from the waterfall so you really get to feel like it is your own private tour with no one else in all your pictures!! If you can add this adventure to your travel plan, it will be worth it!! Can not recommend it enough.

Great trip! This trip was SO FUN! The hike included jumping in bright blue pools, a little rock climbing, going through caves, and finally swimming through a beautiful canyon to a waterfall! Our guide, Vladimir, kept me and my kids (11 and 8) safe and kept us entertained with local history and information about the ecology of the area. Go! You won’t regret it!

Epic experience One of the highlights of our trip for sure! The adventure was incredible but Jeremy elevated the whole experience. He was so knowledgeable yet fun and got my 9 year old to loosen up and explore without any fear. Book private, it’s totally worth it and you won’t regret it for a moment. It’s simply A Cachete!!

Amazing adventure We had an incredible time with Fabricio, Victor, Jeremy, John, and Joseph. We came with lots of young children and they made this hike so much fun! They made us feel safe while providing them with an incredible adventure. The end waterfall was spectacular. I couldn’t recommend enough! This hike is physically intense but was so worth it! The guides pointed out monkey, plants, and different insects to us along the way. Thank you for a great afternoon in Costa Rica. Pura Vida!
