Nice hike, but the waterfall is not that spectacular (in July) + the road there is horrible in case you go on a scooter.

I though it was just a walk of 1h30 from the lake to get there, but finally it’s a tricky trail where you have to walk and climb through the jungle ! Very funny by the way, and the cascada is really really cool !...More

The hike up was a little tougher than anticipated but worth the trip (so many Instagram worthy pics). I feel I should mention that this was toward the end of my backpacking trip so I was tired from the start of the trek. There is...More

A wonderful reward for an almost as wonderful hike. We hiked as a family of four (kids 12, 10) from Merida, probably close to ten miles round trip. The waterfall is beautiful, and we had the place to ourselves because we left early. Highly recommended...More

Since our group of nine included a 77 and 78 year old, we chose to ride horses up most of the way to the waterfall. I am probably not a big fan of horseback riding but it was nice. At the point where the horses...More

Barely enough water to submerge in. The hike through the jungle is pretty, but otherwise not worth the trip in the dry season

It’s not even a waterfall but it the little stream coming out of the rocks above, after such a challenging hike which takes around 2 hours you would expect probably something stunning but no. We regretted big time

We rode horses up the mountain which got us most of the way to the waterfalls. After a short but invigorating Nike we made it to the top where the falling water was so refreshing. You can swim in the small pool at the bottom...More

From the main road you can take a motorcycle up to the parking lot, I would not recommend a scooter as they don’t have much ground clearance, the hike is about 40-45 min from the middle parking lot . On the trail there are some...More

We were kind of lazy and decided to take our dirt bike up to the parking lot half way up the hill and climbed from there. They charged us 95 cordonas per person and 62 for our dirt bike . The first part is not...More
