La Fortuna Waterfall is in central Costa Rica. In Spanish, it is known as Catarata Fortuna. The waterfall drops about 70−75 meters and is at the base of the dormant Chato volcano, near the Arenal. The waterfall is one of the must-see attractions in the La Fortuna area and the waterfall hike, about 500 steps down and then back up, is well worth the effort. Attractive rest stops along the steps allow for necessary respite.

Bridal Veil Falls, North Carolina
Bridal Veil Falls near Highlands has been famous for generations as the only waterfall in North Carolina you can drive behind. However, the section of road behind the falls is now blocked off from automobiles for safety. This allows you to walk behind and enjoy it more. The 60-ft. waterfall in Nantahala National Forest doesn’t have a large volume of water (unless it’s right after a big rain), making it safe and fun to stand behind.
