GREAT hike! Recommend tennis shoes or hiking shoes. You might want a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get there. Take a rain jacket just in case you get caught in the rain. Beautiful waterfalls. Off the beaten path. A little more pricey than I would...More

This series of three waterfalls is located in the midst of rather sparse, dry hills. The falls themselves are nice, but there are much prettier and lush waterfalls all over CR. We parked at the top, hiked down and then took horseback back up. I...More

My wife and I visited the waterfalls while staying in the Tronadora area. The waterfalls themselves are really good. Not the best I’ve seen, but worth a visit. The young guy at the ticket office assured me that it was fine to take my rental...More

On your way to this place you will see a lot of signs, which is good as you confirm you are on the right way. Once you arrive to the restaurant and purchase the tickets, a lady gave us some directions. There's a parking space...More

A late morning decision to go for the hike to see the falls with our 5-7-9 yr old kids. (I would not recommend much younger as there are quite a few steps) They had a blast and even joined for the swim after a picnic...More
