  • Awesome place to check out! Give your selves half a day unless your gonna hike it. Up to you but I took 4x4 and I saw a lot of tired people and people returning to parking we’re exhausting. In...  more »
  • Beautiful waterfall, and a challenging hike for us. Nice to have the other two options, horseback and trucks. Best in the dry season, because of muddy, and low spots. Wear shoes with good tread...  more »

  • Very nice pair of waterfalls in what is undeniably a touristic spot. This is all well organized and maintained. There is a 4km hike (about 2.5 miles) to get there and then the same back - the path goes up and down so take your time and bring water. The waterfalls themselves are really beautiful and wroth the effort, but if you want to can take a truck that departs I believe every hour and lets you stay there for two or three hours (which is enough), or you can go on horseback. In both cases (truck or horse riding) you need to reserve in advance. The parking is at the bottom of a very steep dirt road that can be tricky in the rainy season, in that case I'd suggest a 4x4.
  • Just visited today with my family. The falls were big, with strong current in the water. May be because we went in the rainy season...not sure on that. We did the hike and it was great! Our youngest is 7, and she did well, but it was fairly vigorous with a lot of hills. There are many steep steps right at the falls, so even if you ride by truck or horse you will have those steps. The parking lot seemed pretty secure. There are restrooms and changing rooms at the parking lot and at the falls. Half way to the falls there is a rest area. This is where the tours stop to eat, but they have coke, powerade and water for sale. Have cash for that, but the ticket office takes a credit card.
