18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Nauyuca Falls

This was one of the most beautiful scenes I have ever seen in my life. Nauyuca Falls is in in the heart of Costa Rica, and one of the things that makes it so special (besides the immense size) is the multiple tiers. You can hike to this view or even higher up to get to the top of the falls. It is the definition of serene, with the golden sun, crystal blue water, and lush jungle life. You can get in the water here and it feels rejuvenating down to the soul!
