The trip to the falls is on a very winding road but quite scenic. The falls themselves are amazing. Very refreshing.

This is a beautiful area of Colima, unfortunately, the park is not very well maintained which is unfortunate as it would be a lovely place to have a picnic or stop off on your way to Colima.
