Nice hike, but the waterfall is not that spectacular (in July) + the road there is horrible in case you go on a scooter.

I though it was just a walk of 1h30 from the lake to get there, but finally it’s a tricky trail where you have to walk and climb through the jungle ! Very funny by the way, and the cascada is really really cool !...More

It’s not even a waterfall but it the little stream coming out of the rocks above, after such a challenging hike which takes around 2 hours you would expect probably something stunning but no. We regretted big time

We rode horses up the mountain which got us most of the way to the waterfalls. After a short but invigorating Nike we made it to the top where the falling water was so refreshing. You can swim in the small pool at the bottom...More

From the main road you can take a motorcycle up to the parking lot, I would not recommend a scooter as they don’t have much ground clearance, the hike is about 40-45 min from the middle parking lot . On the trail there are some...More
