it is a beautiful place I think everyone on this planet should see. Although I don't want to say so as I am worried it will become commercialized. But it does deserve a review. This place is in my opinion one of the most beautiful places on earth. Getting down to the falls is long and includes hundreds of steps... More

It took our breath away literally due to the fact that it was a bit hard to get to the fall and out of the fall's area. Beautiful and clean surroundings.

We hired a taxi at a cost of P800 to visit both Tinago and Maria Cristina Falls. The trip from Plaza Alamenia Hotel took 34 minutes, the walk and descent to the falls 25 minutes. From the car park with its sari sari store the walk is 800 metres to the start of the steps into the valley. That one... More

We had a blast when we visited Tinago Falls. The weather wasn't perfect: it was cold and raining, but we didn't miss the opportunity for a swim. Apparently, quite a number of people didn't mind the bad weather because the place was packed with visitors. I appreciated that the guides were mindful of the visitors' safety by asking swimmers to... More

Scaling up and down the falls is a test to your physical endurance. About 500 winding steps make you drop or stop. Careful. Others were known to have had troubled breathing spells; worse, have fainted by the sheer exhaustion. But the reward is great-a lovely cathedral Falls-very inviting for raft ride or skinny dip. Test your endurance and fitness-take this... More

This place is just one out of the 18 majestic waterfalls in Iligan City. I visited the place a lot but I still find it amazing. You need to go down around two hundred breathtaking steps and release all your stress with the soothing aura of the place. A must see place! 👍

Our visit to "Tinago" falls was actually unplanned. What we had in our itinerary that day was the Maria Cristina Falls and the Macapagal Ancestral House, but when we tried Maria Cristina Falls at 7 A.M., we were told by the security guards that the place will still be open to public only at 9 A.M. Not to waste precious... More

Tinago Falls is a 20min ride out of town, you take a dirt road through a village to the carpark, and then have a very steep trek down 400 odd stairs to get to the bottom of the falls but it is well worth the effort. The falls themselves are around 50m high and flow into a large pool that... More

This is my all time favorite! Worth the hard work in trekking down the steps. I love this place and this is where I will retire. There are fee's lately which unfortunately I cannot provide the details. I go there for free by virtue of being local and where I spend half of my life.
