How to get to El Tigre waterfalls
The El Tigre waterfalls are 10 kilometres outside of Monteverde centre located. You can reach the entrance without a 4×4 car, but you will drive over a dirt road for about 4 kilometres. You will need your own transportation to get to the entrance. But you can also book a tour through a tour company in Monteverde which includes pick up and drop off from your hotel.
Best time to go to El Tigre waterfalls
It’s quite obvious that you will need to start the El Tigre waterfalls trail in the morning, best before 1.30 PM. However, considering the wet and dry season, take into account that the wet season in Monteverde goes from May to December. With its peak of rain in September and October. So try to avoid these months when visiting Monteverde.
However, when we were in Monteverde in April, we go soaked while hiking the El Tigre waterfalls trail. This is because of the altitude and because Monteverde is mainly rainforest. So always be prepared for rain. Bring a rain jacket or poncho and make sure to wear proper hiking shoes with enough grip.
