After a twelve day trip I had forgotten about the falls until I looked at my photos, but remembered how much we enjoyed it at the time. It's a beautiful location and the 250 steps were welcome after sitting too much. The children that ran along side the bus and sometimes accepted a ride were sweet. The falls weren't too... More

We went there on a Saturday so we got some native children to guide us. They knew the place and helped us getting to the waterfalls. It's wonderful and it can probably get even better if after a few rainy days. There are natives selling handcrafts along the way. I'm not sure it's cheaper than in the village but I... More

This falls are very nice, a little dry since it was not during the rainy season. I was told in September they are better. I did not go all the way down since you have to go down 250 steps, not good for my High Blood Pressure. But I did walk around it and took some great pictures. The tarahumara... More

We visited Cusarare Falls during the month of December, 2012. The falls were mostly frozen, and absolutely breakthtaking. A local kid took us down to the bottom of the waterfall, and we had stunning views looking up. Tarahumaras were there selling their wares along the trail to the falls, and I will say that the necklaces and baskets here were... More

This water fall is special because the water falls at 90 deg. sharp right down to the bottom. The whole view is breath taking and unique.
