This is a gem of a hike - not crowded, a lovely river hike and then of course the waterfall and swim at the end. I would definitely recommend this but would rate it as moderate hike with a reasonable level of fitness required.

My sister drowned under this waterfall in 2006. She was a strong swimmer, but was caught under the currents and didn’t make it. From what I understand from those who were there, it happened very quickly. It is very hard for me to talk about this, for a long time I tried to block out all details out and just tried to survive. She was my only sibling and my best friend. My parents lost their daughter that day, Jan 29, the worst day of our lives. They’re still together, by some miracle. We miss her every day, deeply. I implore anyone who attempts to swim there to take caution and reconsider.…

This is a place great to visit if you really love nature. You can go with the family too. We want to comeback again.

We were going hiking through the rain forest so we could go swimming under a waterfall, Sari Sari falls. O...........M..........G!!! The description said "extreme" but the ages were 6-65. I'm thinking how extreme could it be if a 6 and 65 year old can do it. After all, we are 50 and 51. Let me tell you, IT WAS EXTREME!!! We were REAL rock climbing. We were climbing in mud, sand and rocks. We were using roots as hand holds and when there were no roots, we used earth. I fell no less than 10 times and Eric fell twice. Others were also falling and one lady had to stop and wait for us to get back. It's a good thing I'm not afraid to get dirty because I got muddy. We climbed up the mountain, down the mountain and crossed the rushing and very rocky river about 8 or 10 times. The end result......nearly brought tears to my eyes. It was SO INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL that it made all those falls on my fat butt worth it. Once you got to the falls, you had the option of climbing even more rocks to get to the pool at the bottom of the falls to go swimming. This girl was NOT going to pass that up. Eric opted to sit it out and I went. I am so glad I did. It was AWESOME to do that. On our way back out we took the same path as we took in. Along the way we stopped right there along the river to have some indigenous soup. There was a guy that was cooking it while we were hiking so it was ready when we got back. I don't know what all I ate but it was good. Might I add, our tour guide did the whole excursion BAREFOOT!!! He was running and jumping all over those rocks. He had ninja like skill. Not to mention, he was over 50, so he said. We walked about 1 mile into the rain forest. It seemed like 20. In the end, it was very much worth it to me. I got to check something off my list. Swimming under a waterfall. …

A nice challenging hike. A little more so than what most of the tour operators claim but certainly doable and quotes scenic. Make sure your guide points out the wild growing cocoa, bay and cinnamon. Falls are tall and the pools refreshing. Nice trip!
