“Good Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Wear good shoes, not flip flops! Go all the way to the big falls. Lots of people turn back too early.

“What an adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The climb through the lower falls was fun, but the climb was an adventure to remember. We climbed to the upper falls to go for a swim. Adventure of a lifetime, especially with 15 family members there to enjoy.

“Beautiful views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

On a very hot afternoon we hiked to the falls. A young man named Carlos appeared out of no where and acted as our guide. His direction was appreciated as he showed us the easiest way. It was quite the hike but the view of the falls at the end was AMAZING!!
If you are in the area it is well worth the hike!

“Amazing waterfall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

It's a good 30 minute hike to get up to the waterfall. You can get in water, it's so relaxing and when in water you can get under the waterfall, so that water falls on you, but to get there one has to have good strength in arms, if you don't you won't get there. Also there is a rock on the left side of the first fall that you can get to the top and then jump to water, you will surely see at least one local trying to get on top of the fall by its the right side and then of course he jumps, it's really fun to watch. I have gone at least 15 times there and every single time you get wherever you're staying after a good bathe there you're gonna be really tired, so be sure to have a coconut ready to drink.

“be careful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Wear good shoes and you will enjoy the hike. It is beautiful. Take a picnic and hang out a while. Watch the locals jump from the rocks. A nice half hour hike.
