Very beautiful. Bring your swimming trucks and your camera. Water is very refreshing. My only warning is it's at least 500 steps down a very steep hill.

My boyfriend and I arrived at Laguindingan Airport (Cagayan De Oro) from Manila around 7AM. Bear in mind that you have to communicate with the drivers, barkers, and locals for you to know where to go. We were able to get to the Falls just by asking questions, so don't hesitate as the locals are very nice. I only had... More

The trek down is not that easy, you have been warned, so it's harder on the way up. But when you see the falls, it is breathtaking. It is even more exciting to use the raft and go under the falls :) So bring only the important stuff and it would be better if you have a underwater camera. There's... More

I almost didn't try to go down the falls. But upon seeing the Tinago Falls, I felt speechless but it was really, "WOW!" This must be one of God's greatest creations. We had to swim around with our life jackets on since the water is deep. The falls was really breath-taking. The 2 hours travel to Iligan from CDO, and... More

Tinago Falls is well-known in Iligan City and it must not be missed when in town. It is just a perfect setting if you want to enjoy nature and a little bit of swimming! Although you have to go down a long flight of stairs and go back up again afterwards, it was all worth it!

The trek to these falls is well worth the effort as the falls are spectacular and the highlight is a raft ride on a rope pulley raft (small charge only) which takes you under the waterfall for a true Maid of the Mist experience, the falls are very high so the volume of water coming down can be considerable, life...

Tinago Falls in Iligan City is just stunningly beautiful. Tinago in english means "Hidden". When you get there you will know why they called it Tinago or Hidden Falls. Prepare your muscles and feet for you are about to walk by a stairway (300+ steps back and forth) to see the Tinago Falls. When you see the nature and the... More

Took my wife, teen-age daughter, and several of our Philippine family here July 2013. This is a must see but is not for the faint at heart (heart condition) and I personally would not advise taking young children (<8 yr) as they would not appreciate the climb up or down. Over 400 steps down the side of the mountain to... More

Our experience in Tinago falls is what made our visit in Iligan worth the while. While Ma Christina Falls has its own majestic view and rich in history, but you cant only view it from a platform. Tinago falls has the real experience of bathing under the falls and swam thru it. This is probably the best waterfall experience I... More

Tinago Falls is one of the best waterfalls I have ever seen in my life. We rode the makeshift raft all the way near the mighty waterfall. You can't miss this. Going there is fairly easy too.
