Lovely walks through the cloud forest. On the way back we saw toucans. Waterfalls are nice, but nothing special, at least when there's not much rain.

Took the Tarabita cable car across the valley and decided to take the 50 minute rather than 15 minute trek. Glad we did Up and down but not a killer. Had we walked to the 15 waterfall first I doubt we'd have gone as that...More

Loved the walk down to the waterfall. The owners have put a lot of effort into restoring the original forest... Tons of secondary growth forest with clean trails and handrails

Nice hike , this tour you dont Need to book. Most tours you can just go If you have a car. Saves some money. Go early. Can get busy. Some parts are a bit more challening but overall it is fine.

I enjoyed taking the tarabita to the other side and hiking down to the Nambilla Casacada. The waterfall itself was not one of the best I have seen, but it is still beautiful. There are other waterfalls in the area, including a large one, but...More

While not incredibly difficult, it's also not a simple stroll. The path is sometimes slick, especially when wet. There are some rope rails and steps cut into the trails at some spots. Recommend good shoes - not sandals. The views are amazing and if you...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

Yea you'd definitely have time. We did the same. Did the 10 canopy zip-line then went to the waterfalls. We did only do to the first big waterfall though, because we didn't wake up until late (wake up early that was our... More
