Description

Cascada Elysiana is a Natural Wonderland, featuring one of Costa Rica's most beautiful waterfalls, accessible only to us and our neighbors at Finca El Encanto. Our orchards and hiking trails are a reforestation project 30 years in-the-making, exquisitely designed by Eugene Mitchell, who sought to rehabilitate the land surrounding these majestic falls. We invite you to discover the beauty of this natural environment, investigate the depths of your inner environment, and explore the interconnection between the two.
