I would recommend going early in the morning as it starts to get busy around 10-11am. It’s 500 steps down to reach the waterfall and there are several spots along the way to take pictures. Also there are places to rest along the way down or back up, which is nice for anyone with knee problems like me. Once you reach the bottom you can swim at the base of the waterfall, be wary the water is very cold!

We did this as far of our zip line excursion. I recommend doing it the same way because you don't have to pay the $18pp entrance fee that way. The hike is simple but takes about a half hour. Wear hiking shoes, as opposed to, gym shoes because the stairs get slippery. I slipped and pulled my back. However, the waterfall itself is spectacular and worth a swim!

Our guide, Francisco, was most attentive and knowledgeable. He spotted toucans and shared his knowledge of orchids with my orchardist wife. An outstanding experience.

This was definitely worth the 500 steps! I highly recommended you don’t miss it. I wouldn’t pay for a tour, we drove ourselves the cost is $18 to enter no reservation needed.

Beautiful rainforest hike. Went with the family. The waterfall is stunning and feels extremely refreshing to get in the water at the bottom of the hike. Walking up the steps is great after a big meal to walk off!
