Mixed reviews on here and probably depends on time of year visited. We took a bus from Benidorm to Callosa, then taxi to the waterfalls.
As out of season, we practically had the area to ourselves and we had a relaxing time strolling around and paddling in the pools and streams.
4 Euros entrance fee per person - money well spent.

You have to pay to park the car before you even enter Los Fuentes and have your photo taken. Why would you pay to enter the very false looking waterfalls - we reckoned they pumped the water at this time of year. Avoid!

We went to the Algar on a coach trip. Entry to Algar is very cheap- about 4 euros an adult. The water is freezing but refreshing in the Spanish heat. The kids enjoyed a paddle in the shallow pools and my hubby and I enjoyed a plunge jumping from the diving board. Life guards are present and it felt very safe. A pair of beach shoes or jellys are ideal- we wore flip flops and these kept coming off and floating down stream! Theses are available to buy on the road leading to the entrance.

A series of terraces running up from the main big waterfall at the bottom up to shallow pools at the top with deep diving off boards in the middle.

Once at the 'ignored by almost everyone', 'end of tour' sign, there is a further 800m of gorge to explore right up to the springs in the rockface at the start of the river.

We came here as part of a tour that Thompson did. When you first arrive at the falls you get your picture taken, I think it was 5 euro if you wanted to buy it. The first waterfall you see if the biggest and there seemed to be a lot of people around it. You then go up a load of stairs to the next ones and some pools that you can swim in.
There is a platform which you can jump in from but be warned the water is icy cold! There are lifegaurds and first aiders by the water at certain points, so if you did need help it would be there.
Only thing is theres no proper place to sit down and have a picnic.
Also doesnt seem to be any wheelchair or pushchair access which is a shame.
