Cool waterfall, not so cool 10k drive on a very bumpy road. In the middle of no place but there were all kinds of Tarahumara ladies and kids displaying their on tables set up on the path to the falls. Walked down to the bottom of the falls on a good set of concrete steps. Nice diversion.

We walked to the falls during the rain, very muddy, but well worth the trip. Two Tarahumara girls showed us a trail down, and we enjoyed them, gave them about ten bucks plus some candy and chocolate. The falls were bursting because of the heavy rains, not sure how they are other times. The culture of the Tarahumara is very... More

We enjoyed watching the Tarahumara ladies do their basket weaving and display all of their handicrafts the children help sell and offer to guide you along the trails.

Very nice falls, about 15 meters high and very wide. Really quite spectacular during the rainy season when it's flowing at full capacity, not so much the rest of the year and at times it's just a trickle. Very nice hike to get there and often there are Tarahumara women selling their baskets along the trail. I should mention that... More

I was afraid my two teens were going to be disappointed if the waterfall turned out to be too small. We missed the tour guide so we ended up taking the long route that took at least 45mins to an hour. It was well worth it to see the big waterfall full of water. It might not be the Niagara... More

Of course it's a beautiful place, and a cool journey to get there on a 4x4, but it's a normal waterfall if you can say that, i think the journey itself and walk in the forest are worth more than the waterfall itself, but you should go there

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

A waterfall worth every step. You can take the long hike in (about 1 hour) or you can continue on the main highway for another 3km and exit in the town. Cross over the bridge and pay the $10pesos per person. It's about a 100 minute drive down the canyon (very passable for most cars) and if it hasn't been... 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
