Easy drive from Matagalpa along a well maintained highway. Off street, secure parking. Easy walk down to the beautiful waterfall. Well worth the drive and walk.

Such a nice and untouristic place to relax or swim right below the waterfall. You can use the slide to get down, but you can also just walk down and relax and enjoy the nice view, which we did. Really lovely place, I highly recommend...More

If you're adventurous and like to go off the beaten path this is the place. The zip line is hundreds of feet over the amazing Cascada de La Luna waterfall. My husband and 10 year old daughter absolutely loved it!
