We had so much fun swinging from the rope and jumping from the cliffs. The water was refreshing after the the short hike in the warm and humid weather.

Pay the $4.00 and do the hike. Well worth it! The jungle interpretive hike is interesting and the complete hike to swim in the pools around the falls, while a bit physically challenging, is a must do in the area.

Quite a good hike to get to the bottom falls on foot, and then a further hike up to the upper falls where you can jump. Make sure you are jumping from a marked location, and ask the locals if there have been any reports of injuries from submerged rocks lately (there had not been any, as far as I... More

It's a nice hike down to the first swimming area where you can jump off the cliffs and swing from a rope into the water. We were pretty tired from ATVing for 2 hours when we arrived so we didn't hike down to the larger falls, and I'm glad we didn't as the hike back up wasn't easy. I'm typically... More

Firstly let me say that if you are going to do this tour you need sneakers or closed toe shoes. Flip flops are definitely not a great idea(speaking from experience) Our guide JC from Sun Tours was excellent. He was knowledgable about the area, wildlife and vegetation. He had a great sense of humor and to top it off he... More

We swam with tourists and local in the huge pool under the main falls. Hike is about 15 minutes and I would wear tennis shoes.

N09° 39.018' W85° 04.181' (WGS84) (parking area) There is a little parking area run by a older man. Costs ₡1000 ($1.84 USD) to park. You start to hike to the waterfall. It's about 0.3 mi. But it is not well marked. There is yellow & orange paint markings. Need decent shoes as you go along a stream and have to... More

Zip lining here is totally AWESOME! This was my first time zip lining, and the staff made it a very pleasant experience. At the end of the first 6 lines, we were given the option of taking a dive in the pool formed by the waterfalls. Then we continued on to the last 3 lines, with the last being the... More

There are 3 places to jump, a 15 foot rock, a 40 foot drop, and a rope swing. All had clearly labeled areas from where to jump to be safe which was nice. The water was cool and refreshing although looked kinda like mud. I was warned so it didn't phase me in the least.

There was two well-marked places to jump from the falls. One about 10 feet and one about 40 feet. The water was muddy from all the rain but very refreshing! Definitely go here.
