This is a pretty easy hike if you are reasonably fit. But, if you are not - or you have bad ankles/knees/hips this is not for you. Takes 20 min...could take a lot longer if its rained recently as it gets muddy. The hike is...More

This short trek, about 15 min, to the falls is pretty easy for a fit or average footed person. Maybe hard for someone who has mobility problems. You have to pay some coins to help them maintain the path but it’s not much. Then you...More

Hands down. The best meal of the trip. I loved the guacamole, and the steak was cooked perfect. Thanks a lot Pedro for the amazing service. The cupcakes at the end were the icing on the cake (pun intended)!!

We walked to the first waterfall with our kids, where we spent about three hours. The kids stayed in the water during all of that time, had a great time swimming, jumping from the rocks. There are two more waterfalls above the first that we...More

You better wear good shoes because the walk can be quite difficult, but not long. It isn't the most amazing waterfall I have seen, but enjoyed swimming and jumping off rocks more than goin to the beach. There is a 'hidden' acces to climb up...More

We had a great time hiking to the falls. I would advise wearing waterproof shoes. The hike is not far.
