Raul from Iguana Mamas was stellar at guiding this tour! Not only were the waterfalls amazing, but Raul was a very accommodating guide! I would HIGHLY recommend this excursion to anyone visiting. The food at the end of the tour was also excellent!

Hola Matt, I'm not sure what you mean by hike. We don't offer just a hike but rather the 27 Waterfalls which you hike up to the top and then come down jumping, swimming and sliding through the lime stone canyon waterfalls... More

Hola Julie, Sturdy River shoes like Keens or Tevas are great. We recommend your toes be protected because the hike is rocky and some of the slides a bit narrow. Cheers
