We were not expecting to spend the whole day and had we known to bring snacks/water/lunch we would have stayed much longer and seen more waterfalls. As it was, we were there for over 6 hours, hiking, swimming and enjoying a lifetime experience. We can't...More

The highlight here was the tram that whisked us across a massive hilly and tree-lined gorge to the start of the hike. From there, the trail was lush and green and opened up to several beautiful pools and waterfalls. I wish we had more time...More

This is the place to go if you want a shot of natural adrenaline. The main attraction of this waterfall is the 12 m plunge on top of a metal board to the rushing water below. If that’s not for you, they also have a...More

A old style cable trams zips you above the cloud forest on the way to the trail head for hikes to 7 waterfalls. Bring a bathing suit since some of the falls have pools

It’s a nice waterfall for a smaller one. It’s all relative to what you’ve seen before. If you’ve been to Iguazu Falls this is rather plain. If you’ve never seen a waterfall you’ll love it.

The waterfalls here a breathtaking! When we went it was not very busy, which made it very magical to be alone in the forest together. It is quite a hike, I would give around 4-5 hours to see everything and bring snacks/water. You can make...More

The hike down to the falls was not too long (maybe an hour or so? with lots of stops for pictures). Even though it was kind of rainy the day we went, you could still see a lot of beautiful landscapes, rolling hills, and lush...More

We enjoyed the cable ride over the cloud forest which took us to our starting point. We enjoyed walking in the jungle in search for waterfalls. It can get steep and muddy at times. I would bring a light rain jacket and water. There is...More

Yes, there is a path. A little hidden and the people selling the tickets for the Tarabita are not eager to point it out. Instead of walking Right to the ticket office, look LEFT and the path is just along the edge of a... More
