We took a taxi for 400 pesos each way to get to the trailhead for this waterfall, then it's a hike of a kilometer or so to get to the waterfall. Just a little way down the trail there's a fork where the right-hand trail goes to a spectacular mirador or overlook. The canyon is dramatic and the view is wonderful. The trail heads downward from there, and is pretty steep and slippery though not that bad. Someone worked hard to make a rock pathway the entire way down. About half way down there's a trail off to the left which goes to a large but not deep eroded cave in the very steep cliff. Supposedly the priests hid here during the anti-clerical movements in Mexico. It's well worth the detour. At the bottom, the first waterfall was a surprise, quite nice, surrounded by lush vegetation (this was the rainy season, after all, and the water was orange due to the sediment carried by the river). The trail continues along the side of the river to the main waterfall. It's really beautiful, falling into a round bowl with vibrant green vegetation around it. It has two stages, with the water splashing over a ledge part way down. We spent about 2 1/2 hours at the site and enjoyed the visit very much.
