Visited as part of Diamanté Verde ATV tours (highly recommended). Crisp clear waters in the pool below the falls made for a refreshing swim. Watched people jumping off the falls (I don’t do heights but they looked to be having fun). Worth the trip but if done with a Diamanté Verde tour it is one of many highlights along the way.

We went on the horseback tour of the Waterfalls. it was a well-planned out trip with breakfast on the way out and lunch on the way back. The waterfalls are gorgeous and our guides set up a rope to climb up the falls to a spot where you could jump from about 35 feet up. The guides were very helpful in getting you up the falls (which was the scary part), to the landing where the jump was very easy (as 35 foot jumps go). The outing took the better part of the day; we weren't back to our car until around 2:00pm.

This was so beautiful!! The hike down to the waterfalls was not a bad hike at all! But we did take a truck to the waterfall so we didn't hike the whole park. The water is crisp and clear, so wonderful to be able to swim around by these falls!!

The walk to and from the falls was a bit of a challenge as it was hilly and there were rocks and ruts. Round trip the walk was 8-9 kilometers. The area was beautiful but it did get hot. There is a restaurant part way up, but it does not serve food to hikers - only visitors on horseback. Once at the falls it is beautiful. There is a good size natural pool for swimming in cool clean water.Suggestions: wear sturdy hiking shoes, bring water shoes for swimming, bring water and a snack/meal. Also, some times at the falls are busier than other times as you can also get there by horseback or truck. Would we go again? Yes.
