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”

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.

The tour of La Leona was absolutely amazing. The hike was amazing. Our tour guide Jeremy was the best. He showed us the different trees and animal life in the area. The tour was full of fun, adventure, and laughs. I highly recommend this tour while in Costa Rica. Definitely the highlight of the trip.

Victor was such a total gentleman! He carefully helped this old lady across the slippery rocks and was extremely patient and accommodating when my husband’s shoes broke half way up the trail. 🤪 The drive in does need a 4x4 and the trail is adventurous but TOTALLY worth every minute!!

Absolutely a must do while in Guanacaste! Everything was fantastic, from sign-in to the falls and we even got to go to a bonus falls where we were able to go under them. Michael was an amazing, pointing out trees, iguanas, monkeys and took so many great pictures of our experience for us!

Our guide, Randall, was so great! We did a private tour with our two kids - ages 6 & 9. He helped them out and carried my youngest in the water because it was SO cold for him (hehe) and just went over and above expectations. He kept it fun took some great photos and videos of our family along the way. Very accommodating and good English skills, too. Highly recommend. Side note - the water was on the colder side, so for younger kids maybe an insulated suit for the water?

Had the ultimate experience on this guided hike. The waterfalls were unbelievable and the tour guide, Vlad, was so kind and very knowledgeable about the plants and animals we came across and he kept a great pace for everyone to keep up. He supplied us with waterproof cases for our phones and even offered to take pictures for everyone which was so unexpected and so nice of him to do!! Definitely recommend wearing water shoes like Keens or something similar or be prepared to get your socks and sneakers wet as there is lots of swimming involved. Booking the tour was so easy and once you book they give you a WhatsApp number to contact them directly with any questions AND a direct GPS link to find them which was so helpful. Once we arrived they were waiting by the street to wave us into the parking lot. I highly recommend this beautiful multi-waterfall tour to everyone with strong ankles and knees. Also there’s a bathroom onsite you can use to change. Thanks guys!!

an absolute incredible experience!!! if I could give 10 stars I would straight away!! I highly recommend these guys to take you on an adventure with river crossings, swiming underneath waterfalls, rock climbing and much more! from booking the experience, organising transport to the actual tour everything was taking care off in a hassle free way. I was lucky to be in a small group of 3 people only which made the tour even more special. our tour guide Vladimir went above and beyond to make sure we have a blast! he also was making sure we were safe all the time, told us lots of interesting facts about the area and also has been a very patient photographer!! I have been exploring Costa Rica for 3 months now, but this tour was outstanding! breathtaking views, stunning landscape and the beautiful canyon with its blue coloured water simply blew me away! thank you so very much for making this possible! take care & pura vida!

This may have been our favorite experience in Costa Rica. Our guide Francisco took us on a great hike, pointed out wildlife and shared history of Costa Rica. We stopped to jump in the water and he took some great family photos. Once we got to the waterfall, it was amazing. Highly recommend this tour.
