The waterfalls are absolutely stunning and a must-see! Located very high up in the mountains and through the rainforest, difficult to get to unless on an ATV with a guide! Try using jungle ATV tours!

We rented ATV's from Jungle and they took us up to the falls, beautiful. You can hike up from the bottom of the falls, but make sure you are in shape.

The cost was $65 per person, which includes the entire hike and lunch. I don't think you can go without a guide because it is private property. While the price might be daunting, I'd like to reassure you that it's worth it... More
