Waterfalls are spectacular with nice walking trails alongside. Unfortunately the place is overrun with souvenir vendors and food stands, with someone approaching you to sell something almost every minute you are there. The natural beauty is awesome, but somewhat spoiled by the rant commercialization and wall to wall ramshackle booths and tarps covering the area and tied off to the... More

This is a very interesting place.We traveled by car and found lots of parking available but I understand some days it can get very crowded as many Mexican Nationals come here to relax and swim.There are several eateries here.

A spectacular site. Beautiful falls cascading into turquoise pools. There is a walk up the side of the hill with a lot of restaurants and stalls selling stuff. This can be a bit annoying, but it doesn't detract from the beauty of the falls. Had a great time

Lovely suite of falls and turquoise pools of water suitable for a swim. The walk up along the falls is littered with merchants, but they are not annoying. Plenty of food stalls for a cheap meal and fried tomales.

Beautiful place, turquoise water, yellow rocks, thundering water - lot of traders along main pathway - but walk further upstream to find quieter spots. Swimming is very refreshing - but be aware of currents.

Felt a bit cramp, but the water is beautiful, the waterfall too. The vendors do hassle you, but it is somewhere you need to visit nonetheless

I wish I could have seen this place 20 years ago before it was overrun with people, vendors, restaurants and the like. With that said, we're still very glad we made the stop and you just can't deny how beautiful these sets of small falls are. Nature is amazing!

Even this waterfall unfortunately we view in the rain, then we did not appreciated the way down, surely you notice that is a very characteristic.

The water can be blue or not so blue, depending if it just rained. I will try to visit during the week, since it is a very popular site for the locals. When we visited it was full of people, so we had to climb up and up to feel a little bit more private, but the walk was amazing... More
