Quick trip to visit falls. Hike was a bit scary due to slippery rocks from rains. But was well worth it once there. Great experience!

We went there with our surf instructer Manuel from Young Vision surf school. He's a local and showed us different paths and provided explanations about wildlife and spots to jump in the falls pool. Water was brown due to the recent rainfall. I would have...More

The falls would have been beautiful if there hadn't been so many people there, I think. Also, it was really hard to get to them in the rainy season (August) because there was no real path, so you had to kind of wade across the...More

Bring water shoes as you may have to cross the river at times and if you don’t step on all the stones right you’ll get wet. The hike to the first falls (which is the biggest I’m told) wasn’t too hard or long. We went...More

The hike was a little challenging. The water was brown. It was the rainy season so that could be why. I didn't get in the water because it was so brown. The waterfall was pretty. Just not something I would revisit.

We visited the falls today following a massive storm so the paths were very slippery. There were points we had to cross the river barefoot and climb vertical slippy path but it was worth it. The falls are beautiful!

The hike is relatively easy, although it was challenging for my first-time-hiker gf. All in all, very much worth it! The swimming hole is fresh, calm, and inviting. It can get crowded, but rotation of visitors is high so you can get the pool for...More

It was a humid yet nice little hike into the falls. I was a little nervous going in, but happy my daughter got us to keep going. Make sure you have water shoes if you’re at all faint of heart. But the dip in the...More
