An amazing experience you can't miss. Tips: Warm clothes to the morning trip. It can be chilly at 5am. Look for small company to do the trip if you don't want to wait a lot of time in each waterfall.

You'll probably need a guide just to find the place and to save time on which pools are jumpable and where the rap stations are found.

The matacanes canyon trail was amazing. My wife was very nervous but she agreed to go with me for my birthday. When we got to the first jump I worried she would turn back and again at the first rappel, but after much encouragement she...More
