This place gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. What a beautiful, beautiful spot. I could have stayed there all day. Actually, they apparently have cottages you can stay in for 100php/night. Yep, $2.50.The guy Rico at the shop out front was a nice dude.

Located at the top of a mountain, not many travellers know about this falls yet but it is just an enchanting place. The falls was majestic. You can rent a cottage for 1000 pesos bathroom was not cleaned properly though. My advise is you have to bring your own food as there are only a few sometimes no guest at... More

Absolutely beautiful spot. We were lucky that when we went, we were the only people there. Great swimming and such a great atmosphere. We only stayed a few minutes as we didn't have much time, but on my next visit, I would recommend renting a picnic hut (only about 1-2 USD) and staying for at least a few hours.

We went there around 4 pm and we had privatized the whole waterfall without any other tourists. in this case, the waterfall is great. good for swimming and tubing. however, one should be cautious as it is very slippery and don't go down there when it is raining heavily

Not bad, but way too touristy. Still, it was a nice cooldown after spending a day on motorbike. Swimming against current to the waterfall was fun. The actual village is not called mag-aso, so be careful when looking for this waterfall. In mag-aso village you can find much nicer and peacefull waterfall called Pang-Pang Habog with no fees or people.

I did a 'customized' day trip to the Tarsier Wildlife Sanctuary, Mag-Aso Falls, and San Agustin Church. I believe that normal tours include Butterfly Farm, Chocolate Hills, Tarsiers, Baclayon (sp?) Church, and Loboc River. I paid the same price for my drive as the standard tour. (2500 PHP/ about $63 USD; total tour time was about 4 hours--pretty drive, car... More

The falls were our second stop of the day and we arrived around 10am. We were the only ones there and that created a very romantic setting for my girlfriend and I. The staff were super friendly and helped us take lots of pictures that all turned out amazing. The water was super cold but with the heat of the... More

These falls are quite far and our driver wanted to charge us extra money to go there. If you do a Google search, people actually died at these falls during a flash flood. As a result, you are not always allowed to go swimming if it has rained a lot. Moreover, the water might be much dirtier after the rainwater... More

These falls are nice in shape but not so clean water. Many shades makes a good picture hard to do.
