The natural wild growth, the serenity and the warm folks who take care of the clean surroundings, complete with waste segregation bins. First and second layers of the falls easily manageable but the 3rd layer not for seniors and the weak knees. Also be careful with the mossy rocks, can be very slippery.

We've been there a couple of times already during Christmas/New Year vacation, yet there is still so much to be excited for. The development of Tinuy-an Falls is apparent ever since my first visit and it's definitely improving. Entrance fee costs P50 each, raft riding costs P150 and the cottage costs around P300. Though the road going there is rocky,... More

The 2 hrs rough road ride from Hinatuan to Tinuy-an is a tough ride indeed but its worth it. Tinuy-an Falls looks so surreal. Its majestic picturesque beauty is so refreshing to my eyes, it seems its just a postcard. You can bring food for lunch. The facilities are not well maintained and the toilet is dirty. They should improve... More

Cheap entrance fee for a memory that would last a long time. A 3 tier magnificent falls in varying levels but each accessible within 10 min walk. The second level is where most people flocked as it is the widest and where one can ride under the falls using a bamboo raft for 150 Php each. The highest level is... More

It was definitely worth the long, winding, and bumpy trip! 1. Mesmerizing view of wide curtain of non-stop water. 2. Entrance fee is very affordable, including the balsa ride. 3. The trail going up the second level of the falls is not easy but the hand rail provided was very helpful. 4. Better to wear aqua shoes than rubber slippers.... More

A must-see in Surigao del Sur. Ride the balsa (P150 for 20mins) and hike up to see the rest of the falls. You can hire a guide, just give a tip. It's open as early as 6am. Entrance fee P50, vest for rent P30
