“Food was fantanstic and the guides were fun!”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

The waterfalls are beautiful and the tour guides make it extra fun with their encouragement to jump off from the rocks and their daredevil dives! Both breakfast and lunch were delicious and served in the open air next to macaws, toucans and peacocks.

“Great horseback ride to a breathtaking waterfall!”
Reviewed May 1, 2012 via mobile

I have never been on a horse, and was pretty hesitant to go. My friend made me, and told them that I had experience when she booked. I was freaked, but the horses are so well behaved. I just trotted along and enjoyed the scenery, and my friends that wanted to speed off did just that. The horses are trained really well, and the waterfall was amazing!!! Don't miss this tour!

“Great value! Great fun!”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

My husband and I are not horse people at all, but we heard so many positive things about this trip that we had to go. The wranglers were friendly and helpful. The food was tasty. Our horses were appropriate to our riding levels. The swim at the waterfalls was refreshing. We particularly enjoyed climbing up the waterfall and jumping off into the water. We highly recommend this trip!

“really worth it!!”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

we didn't take the horseback tour, we decided to walk ($ 5 each) with our puppies to enjoy the tour at our own pace. the road is very demanding physically, but it is rewarding to see the different pools, birds, and finally the spectacular waterfall,
A Few tips to do the hike
an early start in the morning to avoid the high temperatures after 10am
bring lots of liquids, the only place where you can buy a natural drink is after 2 kilometers, is the only one!
go directly to the waterfall option 2, do not waste time visiting option 1 and finally bring your camera!!!
