Natural hiking path that leads to the falls and across them. Trails are steep and require stepping/climbing through heavy rocks and water.

Where sterdy shoes a lot of rocks and hilly terrain. It's only 30-40 minute walk from town. It is a beautiful place.

This is a nice waterfall to hike to where people swim in the pond area at the bottom. It is challenging to get to though. The path is rocky and you have to cross some shallow water by walking on the rocks. There is more than one way to get to the waterfall so make sure you know exactly where... More

Make sure you wear sturdy shoes for this walk to the most amazing falls. It is quite a challenging walk, including going over slippery rocks, and needing the helpful aid of ropes at a certain point. But it's worth it! The pool of fresh water is a delight to dip into, and the falls are literally awesome!

This is a must see in Montezuma! There are 3 levels to the falls. To get to the top you can take a very sketchy path for free (which I don't recommend) or you can pay $5 at the Suntrails Montezuma Waterfalls Canopy Tour to use their well maintained path through the jungle to the upper falls. This way is... More

Beautiful way to the playa and little amazing waterfalls coming down from up the rocks and connecting with the sea! Get there by foot only. 20-25 min walk from Montezuma downtown. Very recommended!

Great place to go and chill on a hot day. A bit of a walk to get there but it was definitely worth it.

The walk to the lower falls is very pretty and a fairly easy walk if you have the right footwear, which flip flops weren't. Swimming in the pool with the waterfall beating down in you is quite therapeutic but I'd recommend walking to the upper pools which are more peaceful. You can either take quite a fairly challenging hike up... More
