Lovely waterfall, nice hike

There is an easy walk (lined with vendors) to a viewing area at an old hydroelectric plant, which allows you to see the falls and the rainbow at the bottom. Very nice (but watch... read more

Drive about a mile or so down a dirt road between banana trees and coffee bushes, park on the side of the road for free if you can, walk to the various viewing sites to see the cascades and river below. The views are marred by signs for this and that and a pipe above the river that ruins one... More

There is an easy walk (lined with vendors) to a viewing area at an old hydroelectric plant, which allows you to see the falls and the rainbow at the bottom. Very nice (but watch out for harmless-looking bugs that leave you with mosquito-type bites on your hands and arms). Also lots of butterflies. But then you can walk further to... More

An easy and quaint drive from Hico through a coffee plantation, this sight is stunning. There is a short and easy trail to walk that will give you terrific views of the waterfalls and jungle-covered canyon. Have a drink or a meal at the Mirador Restaurant as the staff are super friendly and there's a view of one of the... More

We got here late in the day, we could tell it had been very busy earlier, be sure you come in early to see the whole area, we were told this the area where they filmed Romancing the Stone with Michael Douglas, and it is beautiful the combination of the jungle and the water, be prepared for an easy walk,...

I almost left Texolo thinking I had really wasted a long drive to get to a mediocre place and pretty dirty place. Especially after having been to the San Luis Potosi area where you can swim in gorgeous blue water. One important thing - there is no where you can swim here. Don't expect to be able to. I really...

I can not believe the beauty of this place! everything natural, the river and the cascada are so pretty! We could have stayed there the entire day! Careful, the stairs to go down and up are rather long, so, do it one step at a time! it will be worth it!!!!

These waterfalls are very beautiful. When we arrived, people told us that the trail to the falls was closed because people had left too much trash. We crossed the hanging bridge (the older, broken bridge to the right is the one Kathleen Turner crossed in Romancing the Stone) and walked along a nice trail to the upper falls. It was... More

This waterfall is an perfect example of the lush Veracruz, if you have time stop over here for 1 hour the view is worth it. Make sure you walk towards the other small waterfall across the hanging bridge.

Really really nice! Not so far from Xalapa (+-45 min). It's one of the most beautiful things you can see near to Xalapa. I didn't expect a place so nice when I went. For sure it's better to go in a sunyday ;-) You have to know that if you want to go really close to the cascades (behind) you... More

The waterfalls are so amazing and beautiful. There are nice trails to walk on. Free to visit. There is a new restaurant to eat. I didn't try it though. There are great souvenir stands with reason.able prices. This is a great place to take wonderful pictures. The place has amazing views. I've been to the waterfalls twice and will return.... More
