This place isn't too hard to find if you rent your own motorbike, there are a few signs leading the way. Parking is a few pesos (maybe 10 or so) and a guide/lifeguard will follow you down the hundred plus steps and show you where to swim, take pics, help you up and down the wet rocks, etc (presumably looking...

Hidden in the forest, this nice little place. Not too crowded yet, so get there quick! Scooter parking is 10 peso each, entrance if free. There are some locals helping you to jump in, and selling coconuts. Very nice experience.

The falls is a set of 3 levels with each level pooling for a good area. Not a roaring gigantic falls which makes for a nice place to lounge. Each pooled level can be bathe in. Go to the top level for the most secluded ambience and for the most unpopulated landscape photo. There's a small bath tub-like bowl-shaped spot... More

You just have to go here. Several levels, clear water and a really nice break. The locals take you down and watch your stuff for a tip. I think we liked Lugnason Falls slightly better because there were fewer people and it's just as beautiful (if not as big). Warning: there is a vine you can use to swing out... More

Can be crowdy, all the tourists do a stop here. But nice place to take a swim in the natural pools. Beware of thieves. It seems that young people are very interested by unattended bags ...

A trip here would not be complete of you don't jump off the falls. It's a pretty great experience because you will jump out of fresh water. Better than salt water and very relaxing and also trilling experience.

The falls are beautiful. I don't usually go into water but this was very inviting. There's 3 falls total (2 min away from each other) You'll need to pay for parking (I think $10php) for motorbike and for a guide (whatever amount you decide). There isn't any reason to have a guide other than it was required as it's a... More

The waterfalls are absolutely stunning .. What a beautiful place and piece of nature! But .. We felt like animals in the zoo because there are natives following you and taking pictures.

Can't count the times that we jumped off the falls - we really enjoyed it! The water is very clean and very blue! Good place to take a quick dip and relax a bit (if you're the only tourists around. I heard there are a lot of people in the morning).
