  • We have visited the waterfall during our tour in the October 2018. The exit of the highway is not easy to find. The best based on the rivers.

But the howler monkeys and lots of local guides, one for a few bucks everything very helpful show. To sit in the shade and listen the nature a really beautiful part of the world that we have seen for $7 per person should be.
