We hired a driver for the day who took us to the base of the waterfall and linked us up with a local who took us on the hike up to the falls. You should be in reasonable shape to take this trek. We went off the beaten path a few times (the plus to going with a local) and the hike got pretty intense (loved it). I believe he only charged $10 but we paid $20 because he was a great guide.
We went into the water (chilly, but refreshing after the hike) at various spots - our tour guide was so gracious to take pictures of us :)
Definitely worth checking out if you are the outdoorsy type.
