I've not seen the fall that its water is blue, pure like this be4. Amazing! The air is fresh. Take 10-15 mins for walking from entrance to fall, but the atmosphere made you comfortable for walking. Just 1 notice thing: everything there is charged ;) remember to ask price before using any!

Had a great time visiting these falls. Brilliantly blue fresh water! The entrance fee is 10 pesos per person. There are two levels. The first waterfall level is about 15 minutes walk from the parking area. The second is about another 5 minutes walk up. The walk to the second level is a little difficult for older folks or kids... but not too difficult.

There are tables at each level that you can sit at. You have to pay 200 pesos for the table regardless of if you eat or not. We went to the second level and had a very good Chicken Lechon (Roasted Chicken) stuffed with garlic, galanga, ginger and other herbs.

The one thing that put us off was the guide. He waited until the end of our time at the falls to tell us that we owed him 200 pesos per person... which is a very very high rate, considering we had 5 people in our group. When we said we wouldn't pay him that much, he became angry. So we paid him a total of 250 pesos for his time He did walk us up to the second level (though there really is only one path, so you don't need a guide to get up there) and watch over our belongings while we swam. Later when I told my friend from Moalboal about this, he said that 250pesos is much more than we should have paid, especially because the guide got angry. We didn't mind paying the 250, but beware of the charges and be prepared to haggle.

you can visit tis fall yourself. Beware people accompagning you without saying they are tourist guide, that's what happen to me... I was with 2 friends and a guy joined us going to the fall without telling me that he was a guide. We went there and wanted to have a drink but the table must be rented 300 P ! Too expensive so we drank nothing and just stayed 15 min... And when we went back The guy claimed me 100 P for "tourist guide" while i haven't asked for any outist guide ! You can go there by yourself. For sure i'll never go back there again...

We were very impressed with how beautiful the falls were and the color of the water. The clear quality of the water made the swim refreshing and lovely. Beautiful sights!

I missed out on a lot of opportunity to visit a waterfall so I willingly went on this one. It's a short walk, about 15 mins, from the parking (which they charge you 100 pesos). There's a minimal entrance fee of 10 pesos. When you get there, so you'll lots of tables - dont get one if you're not going to eat, it comes with a fee. Leave your things inside your car. We agreed on renting a balsa (raft) to take us to the falls. It was a grear experience, the guide took pictures and videos of us while looking silly underneath the falls. We were told afterwards though that the payment was separate for the raft and the guide, which costs the same, doubling the amount we initially agreed on. If you're in the area, I'd still recommend visiting; just dont deal with guides.
