The cable to the cascada is fun. It crosses a gorge and you get an excellent view of the canopy and the waterfall itself. It's interesting and you get some great fotos.

We spent almost the whole day there, and we enjoyed every moment. It takes about 1 hour to walk to the last waterfall, one hour back. But if you want to enjoy nature, bath a bit and play around, 6 hours pass easily. The kids did not come out of the water, even though it was pretty cold. The last... More

You definitely need a taxi to and from the location. Worth the $5 fee. If you want to see all the falls, it takes about 4 hours or more. Easy hike with cool plants, butterflies and water falls.

We arrived at 10am and were rushing by 4pm. It's a beautiful way to spend a day hiking. We jumped on the back of a truck from our hostel and paid $1 each to get to the falls. Don't walk. It will take you more than an hour. We walked to Cascada Reina first which took about an hour there,... More

The cable car was interesting to get to the cascades/waterfalls. A nice hike down to the falls but a bit more challenging returning. I wish it was open later than 4pm.

This place is too special to marathon through. Plan a full day and stop and enjoy the many pools of water that form at the base of the different water falls. Water shoes are a must. A towel, some drinking water, and a little something to eat are not a bad idea either. Just remember to carry out whatever you... More

The cable car ride takes you across the valley with some pretty amazing views. But is zips by in just a few minutes - like a zip line. Ask them to go "muy muy despacio" so you can savor the experience. Also make sure you're camera is on a leash. The cable car is powered by an actual car engine,... More

We did a hike to 5 waterfalls. It was not a difficult hike but be sure to wear good shoes. I had on my best hiking shoes and fell and hurt my knee. The scenery was absolutely lovely.

A nice little walk, but compared to other waterfalls it's nothing special. Spend your 5 usd somewhere else.

The cascades or cascade should I say because I only had time to see one aren´t better than many other I´ve seen (the ones in Banos are much more spectacular). The reason I´m rating this very good is because of the whole radical experience we had with the imense downpour and narrow passages with no protection whatsoever. Surreal. We were... More
