“Don't miss this!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

I love waterfalls and couldn't resist. We came here on a some-what gloomy day so no rainbow. Don't miss this! It's a quick stop...not even a hike!

“beautiful”
Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

It is about a 30 minute walk from Hilo uphill, but not steep. Very easy to find. Make sure to find the jungle trail that leads to the top of the falls. It is easy to find. String this trip together with Boiling Pots.

“Trip from Kona to Hilo.”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Went to see Rainbow Falls, Aki Aki Falls and the Volcano in one trip from Kona to Hilo. It was a long drive but the view at each destination was terrific. Would have liked to stay longer at each spot but had to get back to Kona.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

It took longer to find the place than we stayed there. It looked like a sewage floowing there with a tiny flow. Noone was there and now I know why.Doesn't worth it.
