Hi, J -

This photo looks a lot like a waterfall I visited in thew area called was accessed via horseback rides organized by an old gentlemen called Don Lulo. Are we talking about the same place? I'll upload my own photo to the same location.

yeah, i guess it goes by a bunch of names - Barú, nauyaca - santo cristo was what i was told, but the Don Lulo thing sounds familiar. we hiked in.

Hi J, I believe this photo is placed on the location of Diamante Verde Waterfall, which is usually considered the tallest in Costa Rica. Nauyaca is nearby but likely not large enough to be visible on Google Earth. I thought at first it might be one of the upper tiers of falls of Diamante. I will upload some photos of Diamante from my "front yard." Pura Vida!
