Wow! Is what you will say when you see these Falls. We chos the option to take the horseback tour... glad we did! I believe that the longer hike on foot would have been more than we would care to endure. We had a wonderful guide Erick, who was extremely helpful and an asset on our tour. The breakfast and...

My husband and I are in reasonable shape, but the walk is killer. Very hot, humid and a lot of uphill. Definitely drive down to the closest starting point. Wear good shoes and bring water. When we arrived, we went to the higher waterfall first, to the right, #1. Once you scramble over the rocks, there is a beautiful pool... More

Great horses, waterfalls and meals. About as good a way as possible to spend 4-5 hours in the Dominical area

My husband and I visited this waterfall which was very beautiful and we were able to swim in the refreshing water. The road down to the falls is mostly downhill. If you have a 4x4 you can attempt to drive down to the parking lot, which will save you a strenuous kilometre walk uphill. We were nervous driving our rental... More

We were six. Two 9 yr olds, two 23 yr olds and two early 50s. As you can imagine not everyone in the family likes the same thing, or can ride equally well. The variety of activities on this excursion was fantastic. I was free to ride as hard and as fast as I wanted, go up the trail, circle... More

Two couples went on this excursion. I'll start off by saying the falls were gorgeous! The water wass FREEZING, but oddly, we adjusted to the temperature very quickly. The horseback riding wasn't my favorite. I do recommend wearing long pants for the ride (I wore shorts) - will help to ward off any chaffing. The biggest issue we had were... More
