If you are looking for nice sighseeings of nature, is a good place. Have spots to rest before continuing until the cascade. You can swim, and you must walk for a while. Go with the less things possible cause theres a way where you must...More

Being so close to nature has a wonderful feeling. It is not a hard trek to the waterfalls but make sure you have good footwear and light clothing. Possibility of rain, so a light rain jacket is advised.

This was a strenous walk in the forext, with numerous ladders and climbs on the trail. A short river crossing on a raft. A natural hot spring, but I was too hot to enjoy it!! The end of the trail was a strenuous climb up...More

Be prepared to hike an hour each way through some serious jungle. If you are afraid of heights, I would not recommend this tour, as there are three instances where you have to descend about 45 feet down the side of a cliff on a...More
