Book a guide in advance or try to get one in town as you find a parking spot! You can cliff jump form different spots, just make sure you are with someone of experience! Dont forget to Climb down to the last and highest waterfall!

Getting to the waterfalls is an adventure in itself. Myself and a few friends headed up from El Tunco, catching the Tamanique chicken bus which comes by hourly and is packed with locals. The trip is roughly about a 30 minute drive which is predominantly...More

I loved it! But it is a steep walk down and a steep walk back up. I'm 71 so take that into consideration but I'm also in good shape. There are actually 2 waterfalls, the first is the smaller of the two, and where you...More
