We knew we were going to do this trip before we ever left the states. We downloaded the information from the web site and knew that it should only cost us $10 for ALL 27.
Checked into it through concierge when we arrived at hotel anyway, but still knew it was better to rent a car for the day and drive there, best thing we did on our 10 day trip. We met another couple at the hotel we got along with and told them our plans and they decided to come with us and split the costs of the rental. It was very inexpensive overall...
We did all 27 falls, here is the bottom line: you must have some endurance, and be somewhat physically fit... The other couple we went with were 26 and 30, a very fit nurse and very fit firefighter / mountain climber. We are 36 and 40, a chubby auto body guy and a not chubby but definitely not physical woman. The other couple had no problem with climbing the falls and navigating through the narrow & slippery rocks. I, the125 lb, 5'5" 40 yo not so fit woman, had a tough time pulling myself up at times... the guides were very helpful but climbing isn't my thing, thankfully I was light enough that they pretty much just yanked me where I had to be. My man however, had a tough time... the guides were sure to remind him how heavy he was each & every time they pulled him up to another level or lagged behind.
Point is this.... if you are overweight, handicapped, a typical old guy, not a strong swimmer, a whiner, complainer, balance challenged, a primadonna, afraid of heights, afraid of jumping from heights, afraid of water, afraid of cold water, rushing water, water getting up your nose, water getting up other up other places, have a fear of losing your bikini, fear of sliding down rock waterfall slides, fear of strange small barefoot men randomly gropping and yanking you in different directions, or have a dislike of helmets, then this trip is NOT for you.
Wear Teva's, or some kind of open water/hiking shoe, wear short shorts (girls), the trip is a hike, and unless you look like Gisele Bündchen no one wants your butt in their face while climbing. Tip the guides well, they work hard.
Also, this is a national park, so there is no hussle happening here. Its very straight and to the point, its great, but can be dangerous, watch out for the slick rocks in the shallow waters.
Have fun, this trip is AWESOME... we did MANY excursions while here and this was the BEST.
