A green and tropical oasis in an otherwise unattractive town. Basically a paved walkway through the gorge with diverted water forming waterfalls and pools. Lots of tropical foliage gives plenty of shade and there are lots of stands selling food and souvenirs. Busy at weekends...More

I thought the park was very well done and enjoyable. It is very well kept and has an incredible amount of water moving around. Photo ops abound. My comments are: You should not need a guide. But, know that they have no maps to hand...More
