The horses are mistreated, malnourished, sick and abused! Please do not participate to this animal abuse. They don’t have access to fresh water, are not eating properly as I could see because they had only skin on their bones. They are not choosing strong horses...More

They have horses at the beginning of the waterfall trail. It's a 1/2 mile hike up the hill & then roughly 250 steps down to the waterfall and lagoon. So it's up to you if you want to rent either a horse or a donkey or just... More
